1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Leadership & Navigation, Business Acumen | Intended Audience: Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
Understand the new rules of business and how to apply them in your organization. 

Competing and winning in business today requires extraordinary leadership at every level of the organization. The world of business is changing fast in historic and profound ways, due to massive shifts in technology, government, and the global economic power balance. Political winds may blow toward trade and immigration restrictions, but strong technological trends are favoring a friction-free economy. As the economy transforms, barriers to entry are coming down in almost every business. These observations are among many shared by FORTUNE magazine’s Geoff Colvin, whose unique perspective is rooted in long-standing relationships with the world’s top business and government leaders. He knows what they’re seeing, thinking and planning, and reveals how you can learn from their choices and response to today’s challenges.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why skills involving deep human interaction—sometimes mistakenly considered inherent traits—are becoming high-value skills in this economy as technology advances.
  • How technology will take over some skills involving emotion and human interaction—but not all.
  • Organizations training in these skills today.
