Stuck in the 20th Century? The Shifts You and Your Company Need to Make to Thrive in the 21st Century
Presented by Maya Townsend and Martha Miser
Today, the world is a much different place than it was twenty years ago. Yet, we still rely on approaches to strategy that were developed in the 20th century (and a few that were developed over 2000 years ago). We need to move beyond the old methods to what works in our digital, global, rapidly changing world. In this active, engaging webinar, we’ll explore the five shifts organizations and individuals need to make in order to lead strategy and communicate effectively in the 21st century.
In this session, you will learn:
- What the shift to a deeply interconnected, digitally ubiquitous, global world means for organizations and individuals.
- The five shifts of thinking you’ll need to succeed in strategy and communications in the 21st Century.
- The practical implications of the five shifts to your practice.
