Values Disruption: How Intelligence Analysts Make Business Leaders More Teachable and Awaken Cultures of Humility

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 – Making Leaders Teachable

We will confront the reality that all of us – leaders especially – know less than we think we do about the world around us. In the era of Digital Disruption, success will not be determined by what we know, but rather by how well we learn.

Creating a safe environment where that confession is not only acknowledged, but valued is the most important organizational imperative of those institutions that will survive the coming “Rogue Wave”.
