Leadership Meta-Competencies for a Changing World
We face a competitive global environment characterized by turbulence, complexity and change. Developing leaders who can perform effectively under these conditions is an enormous challenge.

This session will share some of the leadership development lessons and experiences from the Executive Development Roundtable, a Boston-based consortium of major corporate and non-profit organizations, as well as our own research and teaching at Boston University.
