Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader

We understand you may have concerns around attending our events in light of the covid-19 pandemic. We continue to monitor the risks carefully and will always follow Government guidance.

This session will go ahead on the date and time shown. Ideally, we will deliver the event from the venue listed and livestream the session so anyone signed up does not have to attend in person. However, if necessary we will deliver the session virtually via an online platform.

  • Redefine your job so that your contributions are less routine and operational and more strategic and transformational
  • Expand your network so that you connect to and learn from a bigger range of stakeholders inside and outside your company
  • Be more playful with your sense of self so that you grow beyond your old (and possibly outdated) leadership styles

Today’s breakneck pace of change has an immense impact on leaders and, as a result, on their organizations’ capacity to transform. All too often, executives remain stuck in outdated mindsets and modes of operating, even when they recognise the need to reinvent themselves.

Leadership expert Herminia Ibarra upends traditional, introspective advice and says act first in order to change your way of thinking. Whether you are moving into a new role, or leading change in your current post, Herminia shows how you can increase your impact.

With colourful stories and vivid research insights, this interactive event will show how the most effective way to change is through action, not reflection. Learn how to apply a growth mindset to your own leadership capacities.
