“How do we become an innovative business where innovation flourishes? Wavelength USA gave us the stimulus to start that journey.”
Natasha Adams, CPO -Tesco
It’s been a decade of extraordinary change and disruption – in everything from commerce and technology to politics. The last ten years have seen the rise and rise of hyper-scale companies, their power facilitated by big data, leaps in personalisation and machine learning. Meanwhile, digital continues to transform every aspect of our work and personal lives. And all this has meant unprecedented challenges for businesses and leaders in all sectors.
It’s never been tougher to be a leader. This series of podcasts will explore how to lead change and meet the challenges of being a leader in the 21st century using all the tools and techniques to hand. We discuss peer to peer learning, immersive or experiential learning and how leaders learn best from other leaders. Our guests include authentic, honest and inspirational leaders from across the globe who share their stories.
Planning for leadership development in a time of uncertainty is undeniably difficult but fundamentally necessary. And it’s not new news that the UK economy has rarely faced such uncertain times as it does today. As we prepare for our Wavelength USA 2020 programme visiting, amongst others, Amazon and Netflix, Adrian reflects what leaders in the age of Brexit-uncertainty can learn from those who survived the implosion of the dot com bubble.
We are currently living in a world of information overload. With the internet providing easy access to hundreds (if not thousands) of articles, sources, comment, opinions, ephemera etc. And with generations now growing up digital natives, learning and development cannot not somehow follow suit.
