Speaker: David Klaasen 

Subject: The Science and Practice of Paradoxical Leadership 

The extreme uncertainty and volatility of the current economic environment is wreaking havoc with our brains as well as our organisations.  There are many difficult decisions that leaders need to consider and many of them are paradoxical. Paradoxical Leadership means being able to navigate the concept of ‘both/and’ instead of ‘either/or’, for example it requires the need to consider both economic health and public health, or both control and flexibility.  This can make your brain hurt!

In this webinar you will discover the following:

  • The neuroscience behind Paradoxical Leadership and how to manage your brain at work
  • What happens to our brain (and our intelligence) if we don’t get the balance right
  • How to ensure your top team explores ‘what is right’ rather than ‘who is right’
  • How to navigate the Paradox of Communication so you can engage with a broader range of people.
  • How to ensure that you sustain your own energy and don’t give is all away.
