The past year has been of seismic and irrevocable change. Instead of sleepwalking back into our old habits pre-pandemic, it’s a critical time for leaders to make decisions about the future world of work. Dr John Blakey will explore:
How can the Nine Habits of Trust model help leaders adapt to the new reality?
Dr John Blakey has listened to how business leaders from all over the world are emerging from the pandemic experience to develop new habits and see with new eyes. He believes we cannot let a good crisis go to waste. We must justify the global losses to life and lives through creating a new world of work – one that optimises the needs of all stakeholders, including the planet. We must seize the opportunity to accelerate the transition from the industrial age to the social age.
The currency of leadership in the industrial age was power. The pandemic has allowed us to glimpse a new possibility – the exciting possibility that, in the social age, the currency of leadership is trust. A change of leadership currency requires us to unlearn the habits of power and master the habits of trust. If you have the appetite for the new game of trust then the Nine Habits model provides you with a roadmap and compass for the journey ahead. Armed with a bold vision and a reliable compass, we can renew our license to lead and step forward with motivation and confidence. Whatever the field of your leadership, we should let go of trusting in power and take hold of the power of trust.
Ideally, prior to attending the webinar, attendees should watch this four-minute video to give background/context to the Nine Habits of Trust model – https://youtu.be/ahuKC3hOX-A
