The fourth industrial revolution here. Organizations are rushing to adjust their business models and organizational structures to be able to successfully face the disruption in the market. Meanwhile, despite the fact that the board is arguably the most important leadership team in any organization, boardroom culture is shifting at a lagging pace. In this keynote speech, Marina argues that, in order to thrive in digital age, it is time for a REVOLUTION not an evolution of the boardroom culture.
In the world of virtual interactions, matrix organizations and unprecedented change, leadership alignment has become more challenging than ever. Organizations state they do not want to operate in silos, yet they struggle to find an effective way to prevent them. Leaders aim to stay authentic, connected and aligned, yet many struggle to find an effective way to do so. Leadership Alliance combined with Courageous Authenticity is a powerful model that provides insight into the key factors needed for true alignment, as well as guidance on how to put those elements in place. It is a transformational model that can be used to align executive team and / or the board, any leadership team as well as for stakeholder management and influencing by any individual leader in the organization. This leads to more effective and meaningful interactions, breaking down the silos, as well as accelerated business performance.
Increasing disruption in the market is putting new demands on leaders. Personal adaptability, coupled with team agility, are crucial in enabling transformation and innovation, which, in turn, are much needed in order to successfully face a constantly changing environment. "Do not fix what is not broken" mentality needs to be replaced with "What got us here, won't get us there". Every individual leader can contribute significantly. In this thought-provoking speech, Marina will share with you how!
Next generation has one thing in common: they want to make an impact. However, many are struggling to make their voices heard - in the world of traditional, hierarchical thinking, they are seen as unexperienced, junior, someone who still has a lot to learn and should for the most part just LISTEN. Designing a future-ready business model, future-proof workplace or long-term sustainability strategy is a top priority for many organizations. Involving future generation of talent and/or customers makes perfect sense. But how? In this talk, Marina shares best practices from her experience in The NextGen Project, global platform for cross-generational exchange between nextgen and executives globally.
"Marina did a keynote on the future of the boardroom and specifically board's role in strategy and innovation for my network of innovative business leaders. After having Rita McGrath at our previous event, expectations were pretty high - but Marina did not disappoint! Her insights on the boardroom dynamics and dynamics between the management and the board were spot-on. Engagement and feedback received from the audience was excellent. Looking forward to partnering with Marina again in the future!”
“I was looking for world's leading experts in the field of leadership for my global leadership conference. Marina was on that list, in addition to Marshall Goldsmith, Richard Boyatzis and others. Marina's keynote on creating leadership alliances to foster business growth was fantastic: engaging, timely and offered a unique perspective to our audience. Her expertise and experience in the field is undeniable. I will definitely be reaching out to Marina again for speaking engagements!"
