Navigating Uncertainty – Personal Leadership Compass

Times of uncertainty and complexity can bring out the best and worst in leaders. With the help of cutting-edge virtual reality technology, this workshop helps experienced managers and leaders reach deeper into themselves to gain insight into their default modes and assumptions about working in a team. With greater awareness of your intuitive strengths and blind spots, you can then integrate best practice and mindsets from intend based and agile leadership to strengthen your capabilities to lead high performance teams in uncertain situations.

Target Group

Navigating Uncertainty is designed for business leaders who want to expand their transformation and agile leadership capabilities. This is a joint program by HPI Academy, Center of Excellence for Professional Development and Resourceful Humans – Leadership Performance Technology.

Workshop contents

On day one you will participate in a virtual reality game that covers several missions. This collaborative practice with managers from other industries lends uncertainty to the game, but also freedom to experiment and practice new skills in a safe and fun environment. The other day is dedicated to reflecting about your own leadership capabilities and mindset as well as learning and applying research-based approaches for leading teams. The fast-paced and dynamic nature of the game invites you to experiment and try out new skills – and best of all, it enables you to see immediate results in the team‘s performance from changing your own behavior and transferring it to your own business reality.
