Sessions:


Strategic Thinking and Decision Making

The increased speed of change in business has caused a movement from discrete-event strategic planning to more dynamic planning. However, many organizations struggle to stay nimble amidst rapid market changes. This session presents this challenge in the context of balancing short-term versus long-term objectives. We discuss common barriers to effective decision making in times of uncertainty and provide concrete steps to become more adaptable. You will learn how to:

  • Adopt behaviors to mitigate cognitive biases, which raises the probability of good decision outcomes 
  • Develop a discipline for making choices in an environment of uncertainty 
  • Expand your ability to continuously scan for leading indicators in rapidly changing environments


Mindset Leadership

Mindset Leadership begins with the question, “How do people experience me?” It ends with increased self-awareness, compelling executive presence, and behaviors that distinguish leaders and teams in positive ways. In this session, you will be guided through introspective and practical exercises in which you will learn how to magnify your authenticity, increase your resilience in the face of challenges, and build strong relationships to elevate your leadership and career. You will walk away with insights and tools to:

  • Identify the values that guide you as a leader and learn how they inform your leadership narrative
  • Strengthen your interpersonal and performance visibility through the development of relationships that matter
  • Assess and enhance your effectiveness in the four elements of resilience
     

Increasing Your Negotiating Agility

Negotiating can be challenging as a leader, especially when you care about the outcomes and the other party. Although you want to “win,” you want to be careful to not damage your working relationship. Add to all of this the complexity of negotiating in multiple directions: up the ladder to those whom you report to; down the ladder to your direct reports; and across to your colleagues and peers. How can you prepare to negotiate with all of these different stakeholder groups, while considering emotions, power dynamics, and the culture that influences relationships? In this session, you will:

  • Learn and practice strategies to negotiate more effectively
  • Enhance your communication skills and approach
  • Prepare for your negotiation considering different possible scenarios
  • Integrate concepts of gender and culture into your negotiation preparation
