Leadership is always useful, but in a crisis, it is necessary. Or so we always say. But is that always true? It is painfully obvious, looking at the news, that leaders can worsen a crisis as much as they can help us get through it.
In this interactive seminar, Professor Petriglieri will show how the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the limitations of dated conceptions of leadership, and their harmful consequences. He will propose that a logic of care – rather than one of competition – needs to infuse leadership development and practice to repair and sustain relationships and organisations that have been pulled apart by crises. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of what leading with care means and how it works, and some practical tips for putting into practice daily in organisation. The workshop will focus in particular on leading with care to foster recovery and renewal past the first shock phase of a long crisis.
Who is it for?
This interactive event is aimed at HR Directors with responsibility for developing leaders; Senior Specialists in L&D, Leadership Development and Talent. Attendees should be prepared to share their views, experiences and questions.
Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD
Gianpiero Petriglieri is Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD, and an expert on leadership and learning in the workplace. His award-winning research and teaching focus on what it means, and what it takes, to become a leader. He is particularly interested in the development of leadership in the age of “nomadic professionalism,” in which people have deep personal bonds to work but loose affiliations to organisations, and authenticity and mobility have replaced loyalty and advancement as hallmarks of virtue and success. Gianpiero’ research has appeared in leading academic journals such as Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Learning & Education, and Organization Studies. He also writes regularly for the Harvard Business Review, where five of his essays have been included among the “ideas that shaped management” in the last decade. His work has been featured in a range of media including the BBC, Financial Times, The Economist, Businessweek, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and El Pais. He has chaired the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on new models of leadership, and was recently named one of the 50 most influential management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50.
