Back2Better Webinar: Staying in the Know in Extraordinary Times with Maja Korica

We are living in times of great change. Our usual working patterns have been disrupted into a new normal: Zoom meetings, reduced time in offices, intensified operational pressures, reduced opportunities to pause and reflect. The importance of timely, accurate information is higher than ever. Leaders’ ability to access it however may be greatly compromised, certainly when it comes to reliance on usual channels. This includes information for the work that must be done now, but also to strategically understand where the organisation is, and where it might go.

Building on her 2015 paper in MIT Sloan Management Review (‘Staying in the Know’), and extensive expertise closely observing top management teams and CEOs, Dr. Maja Korica outlines how leaders can stay meaningfully informed in the emerging reality of the COVID workplace. She covers:

  • How to accurately diagnose your current practices
  • How to avoid catastrophic blind spots
  • How to create new ways of staying in the know that fit your needs and our times

Join her to learn practical tips to help you stay on top of what you need to know – now and in the future.

Dr. Maja Korica is an Associate Professor of Organisation and Management at Warwick Business School (UK). She specializes in executive management and leadership in practice, as well as corporate governance, accountability and responsibility. In 2017, she was shortlisted for the Thinkers50 Radar Award, which aims to identify management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organizations are led and managed. A frequent media commentator, her latest insights can be found on Twitter (@DrKorica).
