PLANNING FOR RE-ENTRY AND THE VIRTUAL OFFSITE (PART 1)

As humans, we lack the capacity and have a poor track record of predicting and modelling the future. To be truly future focused, we must stop looking in the rear-view mirror and depending on historical data to make future focused decisions: leaders must cease predicting the future, and instead, start creating it. Maximus Directors talk to building resilience and flexibility into the business planning process and how to successfully bring it to life it across your organisation, transferring ownership and accountability to your people.

Part 2, ‘Bridging the Divide and Injecting Energy’, sees us repositioning the leader’s mindset to identify the opportunities COVID-19 presents and examine major organisational and leadership themes we see playing out, and how to translate these into ‘re-imagining’ opportunities for your organisation during re-entry. Our session will also acknowledge the challenge and provide strategies to revive a fatigued workforce through the lens of ‘The 3rd Quarter Phenomenon’. We present the questions every organisation should ask themselves to maintain attention and purposeful action within their workforce.

Democratising Leadership: Creating the Conditions and the Systems for Distributed Impact (Part 1)

The past few years have seen the rise of social movements, with their pace, traction and impact indicating that traditional constructs of power, leadership and authority are no longer durable: leadership and authority as a concept have been decoupled. For many organisations this shift in power dynamics has led to a conundrum, and as we move into the new normal with new opportunities and new operating models, democratised leadership will be critical to thrive in this new world.

Maximus Directors Brent Duffy and Mark Sowden talk to the criticality of democratised leadership to survive in the new world, the systems which enable it, and how to set these up within your organisation.
