This year’s Conference, “Critical Choices: Defining Moments of Leadership,” addresses the difficult decisions that leaders face in an evolving environment, and the development of organizational leadership to successfully manage these decisions. As the business environment has been transformed in the last decade – become increasingly networked, blurring the lines between traditional business boundaries – organizations have been forced to develop new and innovative ways of leadership. Additionally, the pace of change has been frenetic, meaning that often critical decisions have to be made quickly and without full information. In this kind of environment, the critical choices and defining moments that affect the company’s future are more often occurring in the day-to-day operations and decisions of the managers throughout the organization, as well as in the CEO’s office. Thus it has become even more critical for top executives to impart good leadership skills to people at all levels of the organization, making leadership a team effort. To explore leadership in this evolving environment, the conference will discuss topics such as: Leaders guide others through adversity, but what guides a leader in his/her actions when faced with a defining moment? How do you develop and inspire leadership within your organization? How has the globalization of the economy and the various cultural issues involved affected business decision-making? Are there differences in how these situations are handled in various industry contexts? What are the key leadership capabilities that emerge as successful?
