DESIGNING LEADERSHIP SESSION 2 – ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE RESULTS: ALIGN TACTICS WITH STRATEGY
Led by Kathy Pearson, Ph.D., President + Founder, Enterprise Learning Solutions, Inc. and Dr. Oscar Holmes, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Management, Rutgers University.
Every organization must balance the need for positive short-term results and positive long-term results. Fundamentally, the management behaviors and practices for meeting short-term objectives are vastly different than those necessary to meet long-term objectives. Often managers must excel in both areas. Making decisions in an atmosphere of increasing time pressure, uncertainty, and conflicting expert opinions creates challenges for any executive. This session explores best practices in achieving these results. Embedded in the session are decision-making behaviors, cultural enablers, predicting versus managing the uncertainty of the future, and building adaptability into longer-term strategic initiatives. The session is highly interactive and builds on current case studies.
Designing Leadership 2018 consists of five classroom sessions, each with a focus on a different leadership competencies and techniques. Expert faculty, instructors and mentors from The Wharton School and seasoned consultants from the IBM Leadership Academy will ground participants in real-life scenarios and shared experiences so that they come away with a strong sense of purpose.
