This is part of the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Leadership Conversations.
These 60-minute IMS live virtual programs provide a quick dive into key topics that are critical to organizations during a time of disruptive change. Packed with actionable learning strategies, participants will experience an interactive virtual program with an IMS thought leader and receive post-session support through micro-learning lessons and a discussion board.
It’s no secret that today’s leaders feel pulled in too many directions. We often feel rushed, overwhelmed, and perennially behind. So we keep our heads down, focused on the next thing, and the next, without a moment to breathe. We need to reorient ourselves to see the big picture so we can tap into the power of small changes that, made today, will have an enormous and disproportionate impact on our future success. We need to start playing The Long Game. In this talk, Dorie Clark – Harvard Business Review author and Duke University Fuqua School of Business executive education professor – will share concrete strategies to help you sharpen your strategic thinking and embrace a long-term perspective that pays future business and career dividends.
