Leadership and Decision-Making in Today’s Reality

“Tackling Really, Really, Really Hard Problems“: Leadership and Decision-Making in Today’s Reality

Calling all EDs and Administrative Leads…this session’s for you!

  • Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2017
  • Time: 4:30 PM to 5:15 PM

Not your traditional leadership training, this session will provide EDs with a brief, hands-on introduction to concrete tools for effective action on the three main challenges identified by leaders today: powerful leadership in decision-making in the age of ‘doing more with less’; effective communication in our world of a thousand messages a day; and using 2017’s mass data to get the results we want and need (ethically). With learnings from:

Harvard Kennedy School – John F. Kennedy School of Government

AFTHO plans to provide a more in-depth professional development version of this session this fall and in 2018.
