W3 Adaptive Leadership for Effective Evidenced-Based and Innovative Decision Making
The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) teaches that in order to lead in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world, the way we take in and use information and data must also change. Leaders may not need more information and evidence; instead, leaders need to be able to view the evidence they have available and make decisions from it in innovative ways. Translational neuroscience used to inform the design of a professional development program implemented at Google may be the kind of leadership training we need in higher education to advance evidence-informed decision making and innovation for strengthening our institutions and, ultimately, supporting our students’ success. This interactive workshop will introduce participants to the adaptive leadership training methodology used at Google and SAP, along with many other innovative and adaptive companies, and will help them consider ways to apply these methods back at their institutions.
