How does leadership change in modern organizations in the face of environmental challenges? How do today’s leaders open organizations to stakeholder engagement? How do they inspire a culture of openness? How do they stimulate employee engagement at all levels? What role should managers play in this process? Who is the responsible smart leader? This workshop will be devoted to this issue. It will be based on examples mainly from the business world – but not always on examples of typical business organizations. The participants of the lecture may be surprised by case studies of organizations with extremely dispersed leadership, effectively managed organizational networks with a motivated effective teams of employees who are not subject to standard control systems. Real leaders will also speak to the participants, conveying their messages. All this should stimulate participants to reflect on their role in their own organisation.
