Panel Discussion: A New Leadership for a VUCA World


Organisations need to be led differently to ensure their success. Leadership approaches which worked previously are no longer fit for purpose and different mindsets, skills and behaviours are required if we are to expect engaged and productive teams, and to be well prepared for the future of work. Leaders need to resist the urge to enforce rules, closely supervise their teams and mandate moments of connection. Courageous leaders are pairing essential rules with values-based leadership to engender greater trust, personal responsibility and connection to purpose – all critical factors in attracting and retaining top talent, as well as driving high levels of team performance and engagement. Our panellists, each of them recognised for their exceptional leadership at the Business Culture Awards, will explore their perspective on good leadership, and how they bring this to life in their own organisations and in an increasingly VUCA world.

Panel: Sharon Lowrie, Chief Executive, Be CaringMark Heasman, Group Chief Executive, Provide CICClaire Smith, Chief People Officer, Movera and  Chaired by Kate Griffiths-Lambeth, Director, DEMAT
