Disruptive Leadership

Sharilyn D. Franklin, Ph.D.
The Leadership Doctor

Decades ago, the term “Disruption” was perceived negatively and avoided by most leaders who strived for stability and some semblance of security. Today, however, the practice of disruption is coveted and has emerged as the new normal in both business and in life.

How did this happen? Will it continue? And how should individuals prepare to survive or thrive in a state of disruption?

According to Forbes, “the major cause of disruption is the rapid advancement of technology and globalization… and the key to surviving in a world of disruption, where the external environment is changing at lightning speed, is to change the game internally.”

Changing the game internally, clearly references organizational strategy but what kind of leader, attributes, sensibilities, and skillsets are required to deal with and/or deal out disruption?

During our session, we will:

  • Explore and discuss the concept of disruption and the disruptive style of leadership.
  • Consider the perspectives of both the disrupted and the disruptor.
  • Share strategies for surviving and thriving in this hyper-competitive marketplace that is ever-evolving and increasingly disruptive.
