Blakes Women in Leadership Series: Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader

April 6, 2022 - 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

“Experimentation, not introspection, is the secret to leadership development.” - Herminia Ibarra
Today’s breakneck pace of change has an immense impact on leaders — and as a result, on their organizations’ capacity to transform. All too often, executives remain stuck in outdated mindsets and modes of operating, even when they recognize the need to reinvent themselves in order to lead with greater impact.
In this interactive webinar, leadership expert Herminia Ibarra turns traditional “think-first-and-then-act” philosophy on its head and shows you why you need to act first in order to change your way of thinking and gain what she calls “outsight” — the valuable external perspective that comes from direct experiences and experimentation. Whether you are moving into a new role or stepping up in your current post, Herminia will show you how to change the way you think and expand your capacity as a leader by branching out beyond your routine work, habitual networks and historical ways of defining yourself.
Language: This program will be presented in English.

Terri-Lee Oleniuk, Partner, Calgary

Herminia Ibarra, Professor of Organizational Behaviour at the London Business School
