Leadership and Uncertainty: Hugging Agility

On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, I met with Mojdeh Cox, Scott Hill, Paul Nesbitt-Larking, Heenal Rajani, and Susan Toth to discuss leadership and uncertainty. We talked about leadership and the human need for predictability, implications of social class and privilege, and some limitations of describing uncertainty as “opportunity”. This is the second part in a series of conversations exploring adaptivity and resilience in the face of the unknown.

The final three dialogues in the series are coming up this week:
