In the turbulent times we’re facing, we more than ever need good leaders. Join our virtual session and learn how you can boost your and your team's psychological safety and nurture authentic confidence.
The demands on today’s corporate leaders are becoming ever more complex. From dealing with globalised viruses, such as Covid19, to the impact of AI, climate change and political risk, leaders need to be confident and realistic about the challenges they face and the attributes they need. What are these qualities, how do they support good decision making, and can they be learned?
Join us for a panel discussion with Nick Van Dam, Chief Learning Officer at IE University, Jacqueline Brassey, Director of Learning at Mckinsey & Co. to debate such fundamental issues as:
How to feel safe in times of constant change? And how to help your teams to continue performing despite fast-changing circunstances
How important is self-knowledge when learning to lead? Can anyone develop the confidence and skills to lead?

The journey towards the book that will be discussed tonight started with Jacqui’s personal Confidence Crisis about 5 years ago. Jacqui told her story to the world in a TedX talk at Insead in 2018, which was posted at Arianna Huffington’s platform ‘Thrive’.
Jacqui’s TedX talk provides a brief introduction into the topic of the evening, but our speakers will take it much further. They will explain why, in the ever changing world of tomorrow, where reskilling is at the heart of organizational development, the skills of emotional flexibility are not a nice to have but a must have!
