Fifteen Seconds Alps
General Outline

Leadership as usual, including creating a vision, is not enough in a VUCA world (VUCA stands for volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous). Today‘s leaders must be equipped with the mental, emotional, and interpersonal preparedness to manage and at times leverage uncertainty and risk.

Only 20% of leaders believe they and their teams are prepared for a VUCA world. There’s an opportunity to prepare leaders and their teams to embrace transformation and constant innovation. In order to do so, leaders must enable innovation in their teams, create space, and nurture creativity, rapidity and flexibility. If you’re one of these leaders, Fifteen Seconds Alps is made for you.

Synopsis

The latest buzz word is innovation. You hear it being used everywhere, yet companies are struggling to make innovation work. The reason, before innovation we need individuals and organizations that embrace creativity, and creativity starts with you. This workshop will help you connect with your purpose to drive your happiness and creativity while developing your leadership ability.

 

Join ex-Starbucks executive Samantha Yarwood and marketing strategist Jeronimo De Miguel for a workshop crafted to help Creative Leaders find a new form of mind. The program will bring answers to the central questions of the independent, self-authoring, creative leadership mind: “Who am I? What do I care about most? What do I stand for? How can I make my life and my leadership a creative expression of what matters most?” If you feel like “what got me here, won’t get me there”, this is the workshop for you.
