Quo Vadis: The Existential Challenges of Leaders - Q&A with Professor Manfred Kets de Vries
Tuesday, 22 June, 12:00 pm CET / 6:00 pm SGT (60 mins)
“At a certain point in life, people transition from “time to live” to “time left to live.” This shift creates a new sense of urgency about identifying the purpose of our existence. And as people confront this challenge, they come up against a set of fundamental human needs that collectively define how we experience the meaning of our existence: belonging, purpose, competence, control, and transcendence. Thinking about these five pillars of meaning can help you reinvent your life.” Manfred Kets de Vries, Quo Vadis: The existential challenges of leaders
In this webinar, Manfred Kets de Vries, Distinguished Clinical Professor of Leadership Development and Organizational Change will discuss with Wolfgang Gattermeyer CCC'05Apr, the fundamental questions about our human condition – Why are we here? Where are we going? They will unpack the key fundamental motivational drivers for leaders to address in order to define a purpose and direction that is meaningful, engaging and sustainable.
