The interconnected leader – innovation and collaboration in more digitally-connected organisations

Technology is powering unprecedented change in the ways we work. It enables us to work flexibly, encourages more inclusive environments and reduces the investment required in fixed workplaces. Leaders may be more connected to their people than ever before, but a fragmented workforce and the loss of personal touch can make it difficult to effectively manage diverse and distributed teams while fostering innovation and collaboration across teams. This fast-track session will focus on the skills you need to overcome:

  • the technology and investment challenge – optimising technology and leveraging travel in a geographically dispersed workforce  
  • the leadership and agility challenge – driving performance and results through matrix reporting relationships
  • the engagement and intercultural challenge – maintaining morale in your workforce
