Elevating Executive Leadership Culture With Vertical Development

Elevating Executive Leadership Culture With Vertical Development

On Demand

Duration: 1 hour

About the Webinar

Rapid, disruptive change has become the reality for organizations around the globe. The shifting threats and opportunities are connecting and converging in ways never seen before — and require that leaders lead in a new way.

Leadership in this dynamic environment requires more than individuals managing operational systems, structures, and processes. Instead, leadership today requires a fundamental shift to grow bigger collective minds and align culture and strategy — because the relationship between culture and strategy is critical in organizational change and transformation. We call this fundamental shift in how leaders see the world and take action “vertical development.”

In this webinar, we’ll explain the concept of vertical development and share real-world examples of how it can elevate strategic awareness, develop both/and mindsets, and improve responses to complex, high-stakes organizational dilemmas. These case studies will include a variety of applications, ranging from how one company broke down silos to improve supply chain management to how improvements in agile decision-making increased public awareness. You will learn:

  • How vertical development improves organizational outcomes by elevating and shifting the beliefs and practices of leadership culture,
  • How elevating leadership culture creates more responsive teams with improved strategic capabilities, and
  • What executive teams do better when using a vertical development orientation.

Whether you’re an advisor to executives, an executive yourself preparing your organization for transformation, or a senior HR leader seeking to seriously accelerate the performance of senior leadership teams, in this webinar, you’ll find provocative ideas and concrete examples to explore how vertical-ready leadership culture enables organizations to meet future complex challenges and opportunities.

Foster vertical development for leadership culture with customized leadership development tailored to your organization’s unique context and culture.
