Transformational Leadership – Maintaining a Competitive Edge in the Global Workplace

  •  With Daisy Kopolo Executive Coach, Trainer, Business Development and Strategy Professional
  • On thursday, the 25th of June 2020 at 3:30 pm

The lecture will be given online, through Zoom. A limited number of people can attend the virtual lecture, so, in order to ensure your place please register here.

About the lecture
The lecture will consider Transformational Leadership as a tool for deliberate, directed and empowering change, within the current global economic and political climate, with the effects of the pandemic, the weakened global economy and shifting power base, natural disasters and outbreaks of armed conflict and social unrest.

Zambia and Africa have been ready for positive change for many years now. However, before change manifests, the new leaders must emerge. Transformational leaders will be required to inspire and lead themselves, before they can inspire and leading others.

So, how can individuals, corporations and even nations build their competitive edge, how can they prepare for the global workplace of the future in the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world of the post-pandemic era?

Ms Kopolo will attempt to answer all these questions in her online lecture.
