VIRTUAL EVENT

Embracing Complexity

OCTOBER 28, 2020

Welcome

After taking essential measures such as conserving cash, reducing expenses, and repositioning the business to protect revenue, many leadership teams are now stuck in ‘Groundhog Day’, unsure about what to do next and unable to step out of the traditional planning and execution logic.

Fabrice Desmarescaux’s work suggests a better outcome can result from humility, open-mindedness, and discipline. He draws insights from chaos theory, neuroscience, psychology, military operations, and spiritual traditions. His approach has resonance with open-minded leaders willing to step out of the ‘business as usual’ mindset.

Key learnings the audience will take-away:

  • A clear map to make sense of complex phenomena
  • An understanding of the limitation of traditional tools, what makes them attractive and popular despite their ineffectiveness
  • Practical tools to deal with complexity issues
