Barry Dornfeld will talk about his book "The Moment You Can't Ignore" as part of the Pyramid Club's Philly Author Series.
The nature of leadership is changing in today’s turbulent business world, as the old ways of working – command and control, hierarchical, long-term commitments – shift to more networked, project-based and short term arrangements. This session explores how leaders can lead effectively in this new organizational environment, with its ever-increasing need for speed, agility, productivity, and innovation. Barry Dornfeld draws on ideas from “The Moment You Can’t Ignore: When Big Trouble Leads to a Great Future,” co-authored with Mal O’Connor, including:
- Strengthening your authority by sharing it with others
- Understanding others’ interests to advance shared goals
- Using your internal network to foster future opportunities for creative institutional change, and for individual growth and advancement
We discuss translating these ideas into specific behaviors and practices for daily work, enabling individuals to see how their unique efforts contribute to the organization's performance as a whole. In the end, work becomes more productive, effective, meaningful—and profitable.
