Rehumanizing Leadership

Putting Purpose Back into Business

Your Guide to Leading Thriving Businesses in the 21st Century

How human is your leadership? Rehumanization of leadership has become one of the most pressing issues of our time. While digital technology is transforming our world into an interconnected whole, we are literally building walls of protectionism around us. Rehumanizing Leadership offers an antidote to the linear and fragmented leadership models that emerged out of the industrial age. Sudhanshu Palsule and Michael Chavez make a compelling case for purpose, empathy and caring to become the strategic driving forces for organizations in our disruptive and complex world. They provide you with the simple tools and mindset that you need to lead your organization into the 21st century.

In today’s volatile, uncertain world, where strategy is becoming increasingly transient,  companies need to look to organizational purpose to provide a more enduring sense of direction. A clear and inspiring purpose can help employees navigate ambiguity and make decisions. And, it can also be a source of inspiration, answering the larger “Why?” question, which has become increasingly important in a world where employees value meaning as much as money. The leadership task, however, is not as simple as coming up with a great purpose statement.

In this complimentary webinar, Duke Corporate Education Global Managing Director Michael Chavez will share his and his co-author Sudanshu Palsule’s research, as well as their practical experience working with global companies on using purpose to increase strategic agility and build a more engaged, innovative workforce. Michael will speak to the principles of success in deploying your organization’s purpose by embedding meaning and clarity at the team and individual level.

Join us, learn and contribute, and become a better leader.
