Webinar details


8 March

Is your organisation’s culture one that promotes agile responses to difficult times? Does it focus inwards too much at times of change? Is it forward-looking enough, ready to anticipate and respond effectively to new competitors and challenges? Are senior leaders willing to take tough decisions in difficult times whilst remaining compassionate?

These and many other questions are ones we will explore in a new webinar on developing a resilient culture, the capability to anticipate and shape effective responses to rapid, and disruptive change. This is an opportunity to both hear about what people in other organisations are saying about what has helped or hindered their ability to adapt, and what might be done to nurture and develop a greater shared capability to flexibly meet the challenges to both today and tomorrow.
