Leadership in the Lockdown:
Resilience amid Chaos

A one-hour live event
November 5, 2020
9am PST /  12pm EST / 5pm GMT / 6pm CET

Leaders today face tremendous unpredictability, both internally and externally. The lockdowns and technology disruption has upended many traditional industries. The political climate is characterized by increasing authoritarianism and government interference in the economy. Employees are worried about their jobs. In the midst of this environment, leaders of traditional businesses must continue to transform their businesses without delay.

At the same time, digital businesses have experienced growing opportunities and rapid growth. Leaders of these businesses must manage their growth so the firm stays true to its purpose and ideals. Common to both is a very volatile environment, in which transformational leadership under extreme stress is the challenge.

Join our special guest, Dr. Edwin Locke, Dean’s Professor (Emeritus) of Leadership and Motivation, University of Maryland, as we discuss:

  • The intellectual challenges of leadership
