Our Insights

We all design our strategic responses around our experiences. But our experiences fail us in this moment because none of us have gone this way before! How do we overcome this problem?

That is the topic of our next Next Practices Live session, featuring Jeff Lawrence, founder and managing director of Organizational Agility Advisors. A long-time friend of PURC, Jeff specializes in leadership challenges that require diagnosing complex situations, learning in real time, and risk taking. Jeff has taught leadership at Harvard, Oxford, Warwick, and Northeastern Universities, in addition to speaking at PURC events.

Jeff will talk with you about the essentials for practicing leadership in this moment, how leaders can help their organizations and others learn from these new experiences, how to take smart risks and accept failure as an essential part of acting wisely, and how each of us has the responsibility to practice leadership now.
