Healthcare Leadership in a Time of Grey Zone of Change. (see video here)
This session is an overview of how understanding the context of Grey Zone Change we are living through helps us make sense of healthcare leadership changes in a pandemic/post-pandemic era. Grey Zone Change is defined as “A space between the current state and the emerging future that is undefined and unknowable.” The presenter characterizes the call to lead Grey Zone Change challenges, provides an overview of the Grey Zone of Change and its dynamics and helps attendees understand what will be required of them to lead in an era of environmental, social and governance challenges and opportunities.
