Leading in Crisis: Building Resilience in Challenging Times

with Duke Corporate Education CEO Michael Chavez

View Recording

Leaders today find themselves in uncharted territory, never before seen in their lifetimes. The difficulty of leading in disorder comes not just from the nature of the crisis at hand, but also from the challenge of working with organizational models that were built for scale, efficiency and stability. Worse, our brain wiring constrains us from the creativity we need to improvise in a totally new set of circumstances.

In this webinar, Duke Corporate Education’s CEO Michael Chavez draws from his own research on Rehumanizing Leadership, as well as insights derived from working with global clients to build greater learning agility, to put forward a model for leading others with clarity through the murky waters of uncertainty and volatility. He discusses how, in times of upheaval, a human approach based upon understanding reality, anchoring in meaning and empowering improvisation is more important than ever.

View Recording

Competing in the global arena and building successful, scalable and sustainable businesses entails dealing with a number of interconnected, complex, disruptive, highly-volatile forces. Static, long-term equilibrium no longer exists — competitors come and go, markets emerge, close, shrink, split, collide and grow, and today’s partners are tomorrow’s competitors. Organizations that do well in this environment exhibit the following characteristics: Speed, Human Centricity, Imagination, Flexibility & Trust.

In this session, participants are introduced to Duke Corporate Education’s latest research and survey conducted with CEOs globally, and the SHIFT levers are discussed and applied to real-world cases.
