Smith - Provoke - A Discussion with Steven Goldbach, Com'96

Virtual event

The world is becoming harder and harder to predict; uncertainty abounds across issues related to business, government and society. While uncertainty has always been with us, it has snapped into focus with the pandemic and the impact of technological advances. Human beings are naturally wired to take a “wait and see” approach to managing the unknown but it is the exact opposite of this instinct which is required to thrive in an uncertain future. The best leaders don’t wait for the future to arrive, they provoke it.
Join Smith Alumni Ottawa Chapter and Smith Business Insight for a discussion hosted by innovation expert, TEDx and TEC speaker, Nilufer Erdebil, Sc’96, MBA’03 with Steven Goldbach, Com’96, Chief Strategy Officer at Deloitte and co-author of the WSJ bestseller Provoke: How Leaders Shape the Future by Overcoming Fatal Human Flaws, an insightful exploration of how people tend to act tentatively in the face of uncertainty and the tools we need to do things differently.
