Leadership is one of the most talked about yet least understood concepts in business, politics and social life.

In this webinar presenters will share insights from compiling the second edition of their book Exploring Leadership (OUP, 2023) along with today’s emerging theories, trends and issues.

In particular, presenters will consider the implications of global societal challenges — such as climate change, healthcare, and inequality — and how people can conceptualize and enact more collective, inclusive, and compassionate forms of leadership practice.

Finally, presenters will consider the extent of technological advances over the past decade and some of the new and enduring capabilities that leaders, teams, and organizations will need to develop in order to navigate the opportunities and challenges these advances create.
