Leadership and Diversity: Leading in an Age of Globalization and Hyper-Change

In an age of globalization and hyper-change, our understanding of what leadership “is” must change. Tomorrow’s leaders need to embrace diversity and change.

Guiding questions:

1.  How is globalization transforming the context of leadership?

2.  How is hyper-change impacting the leadership environment?

3.  What skills and experiences will be useful for the leaders of tomorrow?

4. How can I develop as a leader?
