Legacy Leadership: Panel and Book Launch

The emergence of a new model of leadership after more than a decade in crisis.

The enormous scale, complexity and urgency of an organisations’ challenges demand more purposeful and sustainable leadership behaviours.

Leaders who have the vision and values, the character and competence, to shape the future while also balancing short- and long-term goals, and a sustainable, psychologically safe organisational culture, have a place in this ‘new world’.

A new book based on the learnings from a 10-year Women on Boards program has come up with the foundations and principles of a new form of leadership. ‘Legacy Leadership’ acknowledges the importance of ‘human skills’, including a deep understanding of emotional and social intelligence, to stay ‘true’ during stressful and uncertain times.

Join author Carolyn Grant, Claire Braund from Women on Boards and Bobbie Foot (panel members) as they discuss the book, and share insights into leadership challenges, priorities and skillsets to make positive impacts both personally and professionally.
