Exponential Thinking & Leadership in the Future

26.04.2017, Polichoros Lolou, 09:30 - 17:30


Enterprise leadership has until now been largely based on military examples - hence the chief "officers” of various kinds. But because of exponential technological developments, leadership is changing in radical ways, as well. Technology and leadership are two interacting agents who need to co-evolve. The leaders of the new era need to redefine their roles into this system and adapt to the ever-growing demands.

How can you grasp the changing nature of your role above and beyond shareholder value?
What human skills will you need to evolve alongside the strategic, financial or technological and engineering ones you may have already mastered?
And how can you leave backward-looking, or ‘toxic-assumption’ – decision making behind and start deploying a future mindset with exponential thinking?
In this experiential seminar, Gerd Leonhard addresses a world of leadership where most of the old models are suddenly obsolete, and delivers inspirational precepts from the parallel worlds of imagination and invention to update your thinking for a digital age.

You will be inspired to abandon linear approaches and incremental progress mindsets, and start embracing uncertainty until you are able to see around the "corner” towards your exponential growth. Unfolding the leadership of the future, you will also understand why you need to engage your people on this journey of continuous learning and adaptation.

Gerd Leonhard is a hunter and gatherer of human values from the future. From culture and society to commerce and technology, Gerd brings back the news from the future so business and society leaders can make better choices right now. 

In his latest book, Technology vs Humanity, Gerd explores the key ethical and social questions which urgently require an answer before we increasingly abdicate our very humanity.

For organizations in the grip of disruption, Gerd supplies visionary insights and concentrated wisdom that inform key decisions makers today. A musician by origin, Gerd Leonhard has now redefined the vocation of futurist as a new humanist. Gerd was listed as one of the top 100 influencers in technology by Wired magazine (2015).

His clients include over 200 companies and organizations in 50+ countries, including Google, IPG, UBS, Roche, WWF, Cisco, KPMG, Accenture, Nestle, Unilever, US Social Security Agency, the BBC, Universal Studios, the EU Commission and many more.

The seminar will last from 09:30 to 17:30.
Detailed program will be announced soon.
