How do you lead in a way that generates simultaneously high creativity AND continuous innovation AND disciplined implementation AND deep job satisfaction AND client delight?
That's the challenge facing leaders, entrepreneurs and managers today. Traditional management no longer works. Only 1 in 5 workers is fully engaged in their work. Executive turnover is accelerating. Customers are frustrated. Innovation is stunted.
Yet most suggestions for improving management make progress in one area at the expense of another. Improvements for workers often increase costs and undermined productivity. Upgrading service to customers is often at odds with improving productivity. Improvements in efficiency often discourage workers and frustrate customers. And they inhibit, rather than liberate, creativity in the workplace.
In this lively workshop, storyteller extraordinaire Steve Denning, will take you through a series of interactive exercises that will help you rethink management and leadership from first principles. You will understand how the productivity and creativity of the organization, the life of workers, and the experience of customers can be simultaneously upgraded. You will experience the 7 Principles of Radical Management that form the foundation for Steve's just-published book, The Leader's Guide to Radical Management as well as some of the more than 70 practices which support those principles. The book was written for leaders and managers in organizations, but the same principles and practices apply to innovators, entrepreneurs and visionaries in all spheres of life.
In this experiential session, you will learn:
- how to apply the principles of radical management to your real-life challenges
- how to come up with creative solutions to intractable problems
- how to put those solutions into action
- a new way of thinking, speaking and acting in the world
In effect, a new way of leading that is worthy of the 21st Century.
Are you ready to step up and create workplaces that thrill with life and energy and laughter, while also being highly productive and efficient? If so, join me in this extraordinary session. A limited number of books will be on sale at the session.
Hope to see you there.
