Seeing Around Corners: Five Tips to Navigate Inflection Points and Build Resilience
The pandemic. The environmental crisis. Racial injustice. An unequal economy. Champlain Towers South. These are examples of the culmination of a strategic inflection point — something that will fundamentally change how we live by an order of magnitude —10X or more.

Although they are very significant events when they occur, they often take a long time to unfold, and people are all too willing to put off investing into preparation until it’s too late. In this webinar, Rita McGrath, a globally recognized strategy expert and long-time faculty member at Columbia Business School Executive Education, will suggest five factors that can provoke people into preparing for the unexpected.

You will walk away from the webinar understanding:

• The nature of strategic inflection points and why they so often take us by surprise
• A technique for anticipating possible inflection points
• How to prompt groups of people to take action in time by highlighting leading indicators
