Presentation Description: 

In a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, where change comes fast and unpredictability and complexity are all around us, agility has become the order of the day. As the Forbes article, "Agility: The Ingredient that Will Define the Next Generation of Leadership,” put it, leaders now have to be “able to handle any curve ball thrown their way.”

You probably know this feeling all too well. Today’s environment is demanding that we all become more flexible, adaptable and skilled at simultaneously managing diverse, shifting objectives, priorities, people and strategies without sacrificing results. And it’s only going to get worse.

You already have the best tool available to increase your agility and manage it all—the brain--yet the way you use your bran has to change to be agile enough to prepare for a changing future.

Learn how many of today’s inspirational and forward-thinking leaders are building their thinking agility and getting more conscious about how they apply their mental resources so they can lead successfully in a world of globalization, unpredictability and brain-draining distractions.

You’ll learn:

• Thinking skills required for the future of work

• Strategies to stimulate new ideas and perspectives

• Easy techniques for getting focused, reducing information “noise” and building your mental muscles
