"How the Vulcan Death Grip Changes Everything: Organizational Complexity and Context in Leadership Decision-Making"




Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will be able to describe how complexity impacts organizational leaders and their decisions
    2. Participants will be able to develop strategies to successfully navigate unexpected/rapid change
    3. Participants will be able to identify obstacles to the successful implementation and practice of the unique leadership skills needed for a rapid and dynamic work environment


Session Description:

The Contextual Intelligence Workshop introduces a unique three-dimensional (3D) thinking model of integrating hindsight, insight, and foresight, which helps to be better prepared for complexity and volatility. The world is experiencing an unprecedented pace of change requiring what renowned microbiologist Louis Pasteur called a "prepared mind." Being prepared to lead in today's world means we all must embrace thinking differently about leadership. This workshop is designed to help participants think holistically about their experiences and biases and describes how context (in all its facets) is a major determinant of leadership behaviors and expectations. Too often leadership becomes a passive process based on outdated models or irrelevant experience. The goal of this workshop is to help participants understand leadership from the perspective of a context-rich and fluid environment, and offers a framework to understand and organize the various complexities and speed at which information is evaluated.
