IE Masterclass – 20/20 Vision and the Art of Seeing
Join us Online!
We would love for you to join for our on-line Master Class ‘20/20 Vision and the Art of Seeing!’ by IE Professor Sandra Comas.
In this session, we focus on the essential leadership practice of developing and communicating a vision for an organization. We compare the vision of great artists to those of change-making business leaders who inspire us to view the world in new ways and to bring these views to life. We consider how these visionaries show the pathways and processes for becoming creative and innovative leaders who will shape change in the 21st century, especially now as we seek to tame or solve the global pandemic and its consequences for business, local and global trade.
We specifically discuss the creation of an agile and nimble vision for leading and managing through this period. How can we create a vision for alignment and purpose in a context that is so dynamic? How does vision enable rapid, effective response in our current environment?
A few of the most influential business visionaries of our time have created unique, driving images of what a company can imagine and implement to create maximum impact. Some to consider include Jeff Bezos at Amazon, Arianna Huffington of Huffington Post, Travis Kalanick and Dara Khosrowshahi at Uber, the leadership at Samsung and a young startup, Digital Energy. As organizations grow from start-up to global change-makers, their vision of themselves and the world shows continuous adaptation and innovation. What can we learn from them and their challenges that can be integrated into our own unique leadership practice? How are these companies, and others, re-imagining their vision for a short and long-term future? What is transformed, and in what ways, by a global health crisis of Covid-19’s scale and reach?
