Agenda


September 12, 2018

5:00pm - 6:30pm  Discussion Topics

Leading Through Uncertainty

In today’s environment of constant technology upheaval, traditional change management techniques fall short. Digital initiatives, executive expectations and an evolving marketplace necessitate change at a rapid pace. In order to adapt their business and their teams at this speed, C-level leaders must adopt an alternate approach. At this dinner, compare your most pressing disruptions with peers and discuss innovative ways to guide your change leadership efforts and reduce uncertainty in the enterprise.

Topic 1: Addressing the current challenges 

  • What barriers to high performance are you currently experiencing at your organization?
  • In what ways is your team expected to respond to competitive threats with creative solutions?
  • What technologies are creating the biggest disruptions to your business currently? Which ones are on the horizon?

Topic 2: Abandoning the old approach to change leadership

  • How can we get rid of the traditional “burning platform” approach, where businesses adapt to change when forced with a crisis, rather than anticipating change?
  • What (if any) new change management techniques have you adopted or would like to adopt?
  • What support or resources do you need to adopt newer models?

Topic 3: Creating a culture of adaptation

  • How can IT leaders create an environment of comfort, confidence and control for their teams?
  • How do you provide space for your team to innovate?
  • How can we better communicate the likelihood and magnitude of change to our teams?
  • How can we work better across the C-suite to create a culture of adaptation and innovation?
