What can we learn from past and present leadership approaches to prepare and anticipate future challenges and scenarios?

Join us in conversation with Elissa Farrow, a futurist, researcher and PhD candidate at the University of Sunshine Coast and Dr Thomas Mengel, Professor of Leadership Studies at the University of New Brunswick, Canada. 

Drawing on years of research, we will explore and share: 

  • Insights presented in Dr Mengel’s book: Leadership for the Future: Lessons from the Past, Current Approaches, and Insights from Futures Studies and Foresight.
  • The role of artificial intelligence (AI) and knowledge in leadership processes for the future
  • How these insights might impact the focus of change professionals who are often supporting and developing change leadership
  • Explore value oriented leadership and the change managers role in co-creating meaningful futures together.
