Session Description
Navigating complexity and uncertainty is a crucial leadership literacy for business and organizational success. Traditional and business-as-usual models of organizational management are not only inadequate, but hazardous. Dr. Kutz is a thought leader in the area of contextual intelligence, a key component of leadership literacy that is required for a global mindset in a rapidly changing marketplace. Dr. Kutz combines cutting-edge research and real-life anecdotes to outline the 12 behavioral practices of contextually intelligence leaders and delineates how those behaviors contribute to effective use of the 3D Thinking Framework™ (using hindsight, insight, and foresight) to improve leadership and decision-making. Highlights of this workshop include deconstructing the mental models that poison our leadership potential and address how thinking differently improves morale, helps to navigate uncertainty, personal and employee engagement, and tears down walls between the generations at work.
