ReShape Organizations Masterclass Series: Dave Ulrich, June 10, 2020
We have been talking for years about the "future of work" and the "VUCA World", but the magnitude of the defining elements (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) has never been bigger, and we have not taken into account the speed of the changes that are influencing our current reality. The unprecedented extension of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about extraordinary changes upon the way we work. For many of us, our working space and our home have become one and the same thing, while those who cannot work remotely are taking drastic safety measures.
It's getting clearer and clearer, for all of us, that that we will not go back where we were before the pandemic breakout. Many of the measures we have adopted forced by the circumstances deserve to be kept. We have been learning a lot during these times and we still have much to learn.
ReShape Organizations Masterclass Series is a series of masterclass-like sessions delivered by prestigious HR and business personalities that we are proposing for the next period, in order to acquire together those "hard skills" that we will need in the new organizational reality.
We are opening the masterclass series with Ten insights to discover opportunities in crisis: Implications for individuals, leaders, and organizations, delivered by Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor of Business at Ross School, University of Michigan, known as "the father of modern HR". Based on the research and consultancy activity performed by his colleagues at Ross School and in the RBL company, Dave will share 10 specifice insights about "discovering opportunities in this present COVID-19 crisis". Fiecare insight se aplica bunastarii individuale, eficacitatii leadershipului si progresului organizational. Each insight applies to individual well being, leadership effectiveness, and organizational progress. Find about more about the session here and about Dave here.
