Two lightning talks that will get you thinking - because it's time for different thinking.
Join us for a thought-provoking hour and hear from our leading experts.
Mind the Haste Trap - Making Better Decisions Under Pressure
When crisis hits, leaders often respond with speed: speedy analysis, consultation, action. For this, they are often rewarded; speed is often synonymous with good leadership during periods of change. However, when it comes to making mindful decisions under pressure, a ’speed above all’ approach can lead to catastrophe. Building on research in extreme settings where fast-paced change is normal, the talk will identify why and when speed can lead us astray, and what leaders can do to ensure wiser decision-making, especially when pressed for time.

Why Rebels Matter
Organisations have rules and policies designed to promote stability, predictability, efficiency and productivity. We tend to see people who don’t get with the program as troublemakers, as rebels that the company could do without. Yet, suppressing or trying to normalise these individuals and their ideas could deprive companies of a potent source of insight, adaptability and innovation. We discuss examples and draw implications for leadership.
