Creative and Critical Thinking for Transformational Change

February 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The world is changing at an increasingly rapid rate and the future is not a linear extension of the past. To add value, leaders at all levels of government must change their approach to be more strategic in assessing risk, compliance, and performance by identifying transformational risks, opportunities and solutions that move organizations to a desired state. This session will examine and include practical interactive methods for assessing external risks, using creative and critical thinking to challenge the status quo in getting beyond the comfort zone for strategically navigating, adapting, and prospering through change.

This event is included in the 2021-2022 Professional Development Program for all paid registrants.
