How Can Leaders Stay Optimistic in a Challenging Business Environment?

February 25 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

As leaders we want to build ‘successful’ organisations. We used to look back, to know how to move forward and this often worked, and gave us a sense of control. In today’s environment of volatility we are constantly dealing with new circumstances that are beyond our control. The answers are not in the past. And success does not mean what it used to.

A resilient leader sees failures as opportunities to learn. He/she maintains a realistically positive attitude, learns and adapts, and finds a way through uncertainty, ambivalence and complexity. A resilient leader understands that leaders don’t grow businesses, they lead people who grow businesses. Their role is to help people thrive so that the business can grow. This is not new, but it is more important now than it has ever been.

Accelerate Cape Town has been partnering with global leadership consultancy Within People over the last couple of years to stimulate conversation amongst our members on how we can be effective leaders in the 21st Century. As part of this ongoing series, please join us for an interactive breakfast where Within People will share their simple, unique leadership framework based on three key principles that will open your eyes to how to think differently about leadership in a modern organisation. Together we will dig into the core principles that underpin resilient leadership and share real stories, to inspire you to be a resilient leader.
