Title: From The Past To The Possible: How To Get Ready For a Change? (PL)

Abstract: The current situation is requiring almost every business and social system to confront an immediate need to adapt, innovate, re-focus, re-think … need to change.

The role of business leaders and HR professionals is to learn think quickly and innovative, and then to facilitate out-of-box-thinking all the way down into their organizations. This will be very complex and quite hard by the fact that we do not know what will be stopped, what will be unchanged and what will be modified or (un)learned. Using the learning and experience from other crisis situation, the objective of the session is to help individual leaders and teams create change by taking a completely new approach and/or by flexing their current way of working. We will briefly review different tolls and processes that will help to reflect on the past and present situation and choose the “right” future directions.
