While today it’s conventional wisdom that major issues are far too complex and interconnected for any one entity to solve alone, many leaders and organizations continue to pursue their own agendas with isolated impact. At the same time, new digital media platforms and social networks have radically democratized the ways people produce, share and consume information. Yet while technology and the Internet have evolved rapidly over the last decade, our understanding of what it means to be a leader in this new, networked society has not kept pace.
Leadership today is distributed and collaborative. Private and public sector organizations that recognize that their success is tied to the success of others are increasingly harnessing new digital media platforms to share intelligence and ideas, get real-time feedback and broadcast knowledge for the field.
Join leaders from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Twitter and Living Cities to understand how these trends are changing previous notions of leadership and learn more about ways your organization can harness new technologies to accelerate innovation, adaptation, and ultimately impact.
