Navigating the Ever-changing Global World
In today’s every-changing technological, social and economic environment, globalization is not only increasing but changing in nature: the flow of knowledge and know-how across national borders now surpass the flow of goods. This will require great cooperation and trust between nations and between people. Most importantly, the next generation of young leaders will need to not only collaborate across many different boundaries, but they must also be able to adeptly respond to constant change. This lecture will discuss the competencies needed to navigate the future. It will introduce theory as well as real-life examples. Active participation from the audience is expected.
