Open Webinar - The Latest in Leadership NEW

#Covid-19 update: This event will now be a live open webinar, with details provided below. Delegate numbers may be higher than for a face-to-face event, and participants will be able to see and hear the presenter, ask questions and sometimes answer polls. Importantly, no nomination form is required. Those who have previously registered need take no action. All participants will simply be provided with a link to join the webinar online.


Please note that the speakers have asked that you complete some pre-work ahead of joining the session. A copy of the pre-work can also be found by clicking the blue ‘pre-work’ button on the right hand-side.


As a leader, you’ll recognise the importance of staying current and reinvigorating your thinking, so why not partner with us to engage with the latest leadership insights? By attending this session you’ll be equipped with cutting edge intel and be better placed to make performance shifts in your organisation. The curated set of topics include:

  1. The rise and fall of leaders, and how to guard against overconfidence and hubristic behaviour.
  2. The shifting nature of your fit at work, and how to recreate alignment to achieve your goals.
  3. The ever-changing environment, and how to overcome uncertainty and make sense of chaos.

If you are insatiably curious and willing to move out of your comfort zone to learn, develop and perform at the highest level, this session is for you. Our goal is to challenge your thinking, enrich your practice and improve your impact as a leader, all while you network with inspired leaders from across our membership.
