Tufts Transformative Leadership Community Presents:
Organizational Effectiveness
in the Midst of Chaos
Charrette Workshop Experience • Next Session: TBA

Chaos is your reality. Tame it & use it.

All businesses and organizations are in a period of flux. Buffeted by external forces or shifting internal priorities, your job as a leader is to ensure that your organization performs at its best despite these forces. In fact, chaos is your opportunity to steer a more strategic and effective path forward. This workshop exploits the power of charrette style learning where collaborative sessions with a peer-group of other leaders drive deep learning and practical solutions that you can take back to your organizations. Guided by an industry-expert facilitator, you will share experiences and co-create solutions by working through actual, real-world scenarios. You will walk away with not only frameworks for your thinking, but also, practical skills that you can immediately apply to propel your on-the-job effectiveness.
