3nd edition: Leadership for the Future
The transformation of world economy in these VUCA times, makes leadership as much about innovative thinking as much as an art, considering an environment where change is the only constant. An environment wherein convergence between seemingly divergent philosophies of self-reliance and globalization is essential. An environment wherein independence and interdependence will go hand in hand. An environment wherein business needs to look at future global partnerships, through the prism of environmental and social sustainability, for inclusive development and growth.
Global leaders would continue to strive for excellence while making their business resilient and adaptable. Leadership vision will also focus on sustainability and gender diversity as the precept to ‘reimagine the future’. The world has quite successfully survived, then revived and now thrived by finding opportunities in the recent economic, health, travel, and supply chains disruptions. With it came a sense of urgency to ideate, improvise and innovate, to nurture new economic models and development partnerships. This transformation was driven by internet led technological innovations transcending space and time, leading to cross fertilization of knowledge and ideas at a never-before pace.
