About The Event

The current pandemic and the dramatic contextual changes in the business world, made organizations change to survive. Businesses had to innovate or change their business models at once, and at the same time, they needed to keep their business performing efficiently while maintaining margins. They had to balance the drive for growth with increasing stakeholder pressure. “Paradox navigator” competency has a strong relationship with business performance – David Ulrich confirms this. Like in F1 it is about dealing with many things at the same time, even if they appear contradictory. How do you keep driving a Formula 1 racing car, while changing the tires at the same time?

Creating agile organizations requires navigating paradoxes that encourage “and/also” thinking. Navigating the paradoxes in HR and accepting them as part of reality is the first step for HR to be a true strategic partner in the organization. As in Formula 1, it is about looking at your dashboard and having your eyes on the road at the same time. It is about having that technologically outperforming car, but also a skilled driver. It is about winning the single race, but even better about winning the championship…

This Masterclass is the opportunity to give you the fuel for hands-on discussions, solid arguments and help you have a meaningful impact in the Boardroom with your CEO & Board of Directors, demonstrating a sustainable HR strategy execution.
