During this 60-minute live webinar, U.K.-based Deborah Rowland, author of recently published Still Moving; How to Lead Mindful Change, will share insights from her own experience of change management in global HR executive roles. She will discuss how success in leading large-scale complex change in an era of uncertainty depends not only on what a leader does but, crucially, on how they are—on their inner states and capacities.

With this in-the-field experience, sound research and the key lessons from Still Moving, Deborah will explore a leader’s capacity for both greater mindfulness and systemic perceiving as the leadership skills required for our fast changing and dislocated world. She will cover not only the leadership skills required for today’s world of ongoing, disruptive change, but also the best methods through which these skills can be cultivated—an area where HR plays a crucial role.

Be inspired to become more conscious and embracing of your own life narrative to become a more effective leader and agent of change. In short, Deborah will provide her insights into how to lead change in more effort-less and sustainable ways, and the HR role in enabling this.

Webinar Highlights

  • What is ‘systemic perceiving’ and why is it so crucial to bring about genuine change (not just repeating our patterns)
  • How can HR play a role in helping leaders to lead change differently?
  • How do more traditional methods of leadership development need to be uprooted to cultivate the skills required to lead change today?
