We are all witnessing enormous changes to the world that we work in through the impact of COVID-19. It is way too early to tell which changes will be permanent versus those that are only temporary.
Here at Cranfield Executive Development, we work hard to ensure that our leadership development programmes consistently deliver the value that businesses both need and expect. We get great feedback from course participants, many of whom are only too happy to tell us about the difference attending Cranfield has made within their business and to their personal outlook and career development.
The dynamic of the global business context is often termed volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA).
This context means that the nature of leadership has changed requiring more adaptive and collaborative practices plus the collective action of multiple stakeholders working across hierarchies, boundaries and borders.
