8. The ‘Future-Ready’ Keynote Series – ‘Leadership and The Synthesising Mind’
Leaders must move to a synthesising mindset; which can connect the dots of multiple issues, signposted by multiple sources, instinctively, to form the relationships between them. They will appreciate the complexities of a situation without being blinded by the specifics. There is a component of instinct or gut feel: something entrepreneurs credit hugely, but which larger organisations tend to breed out in favour of analytics. Its impacts are wide-ranging - managing teams, suppliers, customers, and innovation (example in the image below).
In 'Future of Leadership', we explore how leaders of the future will need new skills and characteristics to propel them forward. That’s because organisations will look entirely different. In this keynote, we explore new forms of organisational structure, why brute force analysis should be left to the machines and the human skills we need to develop as leaders and foster in others.
