Using lessons from Harvard's "Emerging Leaders" program, along with the latest brain science and adaptive principles, learn what you need to excel at leadership when there is no handbook.


More and more in society, organizations, and in business, we are encountering challenging issues that have not arisen before. There is no playbook. So often we are called upon to lead in solving unique problems with few resources and even less time. While many of us think heroes are needed, quite the opposite is true. We can all learn to lead in tackling new problems with maximum impact in unprecedented times.

Expected Outcomes

  • Access the lastest, concrete expert thinking on communication, decision-making and leadership, to apply directly in your own work
  • Assess your own leadership practice
  • Learn how to lead adaptively to maximize your results in the face of novel challenges

WHO: Anyone interested in learning how to lead more effectively in the face of unique challenges in their workplaces, organizations, and communities.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 17th, 2020, 11:00am – 1:00pm

WHERE: Internet course on Zoom

COST: $99 (#StayAtHome special rate)
