The Anatomy of a Great Leader — Aug 9

What does “great” look like for leadership in our age of relentless change? Is it to be assertive or accommodating? Anchored or adaptive? Decisive or reflective? All of the above? Whichever way you look at it, the path to great leadership today looks confusing, complex and quite possibly, beyond human reach. Join Columbia Business School faculty Hitendra Wadhwa and Josh Davis dissect the anatomy of great leadership and explore a new model for leadership that invites you to shift the focus from the outer to the inner, from behavior to principles, from the ever-changing to the unchanging, from the situational to the universal. This work on the new science of Personal Leadership shows that leaders can build a foundation on the inside that can continually help them execute great leadership behavior on the outside. It’s a great preview for an amazing Columbia Business School course. Feel free to register here.

Optimizing Work Automation: Getting Past the Hype — Aug 7

John Boudreau from University of Southern California presents their forthcoming book “Reinventing Jobs”. Going beyond traditional concepts like a “job,” Jesuthasan and Boudreau will show that optimizing work and automation calls for a re-examination of what a job really is and show how to determine variations of tasks within jobs, and how those elements might be reconstructed into new and different combinations.
