Synopsis and overview of the session

Today, all enterprises are pivoting, from the initial pandemic response phase to stabilisation and retooling. Organisations are conscious of the trough that can follow crisis and are seeking ways to ‘bounce forward’ to future that amplifies the best of what has been discovered amidst the upheaval, and avoid reverting to outmoded practices.

COVID-19 has only amplified the need for organisations to reinvent and be future fit, from profit-led to purpose-led, hierarchies to networks, structured to agile and activity-bound to value-creating. Given these imperatives, the impact of leadership on performance and renewal is greater than ever. New ways of leading must fully embrace and enhance the new ways of working and teaming.
Over the last year, and especially in recent months, Bendelta has been partnering with clients who have the foresight, courage and imagination to pioneer these new ways of leading. This means not only changing company norms for leadership but also developing leaders in new ways to build critical mindsets and behaviours. This work has led to:
  • Bendelta winning the world’s highest award for leadership development in February 2020
  • Bendelta winning Australia’s highest award for organisational change in December 2019

Focus Network, in partnership with Bendelta, will showcase these critical shifts in leadership for organisations that seek to be future-fit, and how we have been equipping organisations and leaders to reach this frontier, and discuss with the group emerging ideas, challenges and practical opportunities.
