Complexity and Leadership in the 21st Century: NUI Galway

November 9, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm

‘Leadership: Complexity and Development; a day of learning and exploration.’

A one-day practical symposium at the J.E. Cairnes School of Business and Economics, National University of Ireland, Galway. November 9th, 2018

‘2 leading edge thinkers, 15 enthusiastic and informed facilitators and 90 curious minds working together to explore leadership in complexity’

We are delighted to welcome two leading thinkers, writers and practitioners to lead us in this exploration:

Jennifer Garvey-Berger

David Rooke

The motivation for this initiative is to shift the conversation on Leadership from a focus on Personality and Behaviour to a focus on Capability, Capacity, Complexity and Development.
Those attending can expect to walk away inspired by a heightened awareness of:

  1. the growth potential of your own personal leadership capacity
  2. how you can develop in the company of others
  3. how you can impact the growth of those round you, developing them as leaders
  4. practical ideas for developing Leadership in today’s complex environment
  5. help create a learning and action orientated community to bring about personal and systemic change

Along with a team of experienced facilitators from the world of coaching and consultancy the day will be an exploration of the latest thinking on leadership and complexity in the 21st Century. It is hoped that arising from this, action learning groups will emerge and a follow-on discussion will happen in Cork next year and perhaps continue in future years.

The symposium will take place at the J. E. Cairns School, NUI in Galway on Friday November 9th, 2018. In addition participants are invited to join the speakers on Saturday November 10th for a reflective discussion. Places are limited to 90, early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Admission fee €299 incl VAT. Early bird booking discount to €249 before October 26th.

Ticket price includes refreshments, light lunch and parking at the University Car Park in Dangan.
