Disruption and challenging times may seem like inopportune situations in which to focus on leadership development. But now may be an ideal time if the development is done correctly . Disruption creates conditions that are ripe for learning, and new approaches are essential to maximize these opportunities to develop leaders while they are navigating new and pressing challenges. Opportunities to build new capabilities must be accelerated and incorporated into disrupted work routines via real-time leadership.

By seizing this opportunity for real-time leadership development, you can enhance decision-making, build trust, and accelerate adoption of new behaviors and ways of thinking. In this session, you will understand what real-time leadership development is and learn how to leverage it to develop leaders who are ready to anticipate and respond to fast-moving and complex conditions to realize immediate and sustainable results.
