Future-proofing! The Critical Psychological Skills for Tomorrow’s Leaders

Susan A. David
PhD, Harvard University

It is often remarked that organizations are experiencing unprecedented levels of complexity, and that agile, adaptive leaders are needed to navigate these. But being adaptive is not simply a case of adopting alternative behaviors. What are the psychological skills that enable leaders to engage others across organizations, to influence – often with limited positional power, to be inclusive, and to move beyond resilience to thriving?

During this session Dr. Susan David from Harvard University shared her work and research conducted with leading global organizations on the critical psychological skills that enable leaders and their organizations to navigate increasingly complex environments and achieve sustainable strategic outcomes.
