CRFCast - Leadership in the Age of Expertise with Wanda Wallace

One of the toughest transitions for leaders is progressing from a role where your value is largely driven by expertise, into a broader spanning role, which demands a different set of skills, relationships and a change in mindset about the value you add as a leader. In conversation with Wanda Wallace, author of You Can’t Know It All: Leading in the Age of Deep Expertise, we discuss how leaders can anticipate and prepare for the transitions required, and practical advice on what this means for leadership models and strategies for leadership development in our organisations.

PSI - Mindset, EI and the Agile Organisation

PSI’s masterclass started by inviting attendees to consider the extent to which agile is being adopted within organisations. Then, using the concept of emotional intelligence, PSI led delegates in an exploration of how mindset can create an agile climate and decrease defensive behaviours. Through an interactive workshop based on a specific work challenge, delegates explored how people need to feel and what beliefs they need to hold in order to be more flexible, adaptable and innovative. The session showed delegates how their organisations can create a journey to agile ways of working – changing how work is done, and leading others to lasting mindset change.

The Greatest Leadership Challenge - Impacts on how we assess and develop talent Finding those critical few leaders who can set the course for the future and galvanise an organisation to deliver is the single greatest leadership challenge facing businesses today. There is not one organisation that isn’t feeling the pressure from growing market complexity, technological disruption, and an evolving workforce. It is obvious that having the right leadership is critical if organisations are to successfully weather the storm, but what is the real problem that we are trying to solve?
