Better Conversations: Why they Matter and How to Have Them

This presentation from Wanda Wallace is from the CRF Residential Workshop: Better Conversations: Why they Matter and How to Have Them. She explores how much time we should spend preparing for difficult or important conversations and the purpose of our conversations at work. How can we adapt to different styles and best deal with others? What types of defensiveness are there? How do we increase other people's levels of trust in ourselves?

Agile Organizations, Not Just Teams

Amy discusses how teams don’t necessarily make for agile organisations. Amy argued in her session, teams alone are not sufficient to address the challenge of how to get diverse organisation components – each optimising their own business models, time horizons, technologies, and customer segments – to all fit together. To build agile organisations, organisations must be able to make good and fast decisions while deploying complex strategies, leaders need to focus on five counter-intuitive ideas. Amy Kates is an organisation designer and managing partner at Kates Kesler Organization Consulting, based in New York City. She advises business leaders around the world and teaches programmes at the Executive School of Business, Denmark and Cornell University Executive Education.

The Agile Dashboard: Speed, Interaction and Pivot

Measuring Organisational Agility: Speed, Interaction Time and Pivot Agility is about time. Time is the definitive shift in recent decades. We are now experiencing exponential rather than linear rates of change, and we are mostly ill-prepared because there is so much uncertainty. Joe explained that increased uncertainty is creating decision chaos – the world has moved from complicated (problems were ultimately solvable – a strategy could be plotted, like chess) to complex (like poker, we now have to make a decision before we see the next card), and many organisations and their leaders are paralysed by this uncertainty and the risk it entails. Paralysis leads to waiting to move, but this is the worst thing an organisation can do in a complex world. Instead, organisations need to get information, decide fast and execute.
