Positive leadership in a post-pandemic world: A virtual fireside conversation

Leadership is being buffeted and transformed by major trends and forces impacting the economy and the emerging world of work, including inclusion and social justice, digital transformation, sustainability, and the green agenda, changing youth expectations and growing unemployment.

Innovative and refreshingly different approaches to leadership and leadership development are gaining interest and momentum owing to their relevance in these fast-changing times. One of these, Positive Leadership, is especially promising as studies show it can help organizations get the best out of people, navigate major change and deliver a sustainable, long-term impact for the organization and planet.

During this fireside conversation, James Brook, our Founder and Alex Popa-Antohi, Associate Director, will facilitate an informal discussion on what leadership is likely to look like in a post-pandemic world and the implications for how organizations identify, develop, and promote leaders. Towards the end of the session, they will briefly introduce Positive Leadership and discuss how this approach is well-suited for today’s challenging world.

During the conversation we will explore:

  • How leadership is changing and the forces shaping it
  • Positive leadership and other emerging approaches that are more suitable for uncertain and turbulent times
  • New ways to identify and develop leadership in a post-pandemic world

During the session we will cover:

  • Reasons why even the most mentally tough leaders can be overcome by exhaustion and burn out
  • What we can learn from elite sports about self-belief and resilience
  • The mindset and habits of resilient leaders
