We are living in extraordinary times of great change. Our usual working patterns have been disrupted into a new normal of Zoom meetings, reduced time in offices, intensified operational pressures, and reduced opportunities to pause and reflect.
The importance of timely, accurate information is higher than ever, but the leaders’ and employees’ ability to access it may be greatly compromised. This concerns information for the work that must be done, but also to strategically understand where the organisation is and where your own career might go.
Building on her 2015 paper in MIT Sloan Management Review (‘Staying in the Know’), and extensive expertise closely observing top management teams and CEOs, Dr Maja Korica outlines how leaders can stay meaningfully informed in the emerging reality of the COVID workplace. She covers:
How to accurately diagnose your current practices
How to avoid catastrophic blind spots
How to create new ways of staying in the know that fit your needs and our times
Join her to learn practical tips to help you stay on top of what you need to know – now and for the future.
