This Century – Leading (and Engineering) Care – Webinar

Tuesday, May 26, 2020 from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Speaker's program

When care is limited, leadership is a license to kill. Engineers know this in all we plan, design, build and maintain. We manage and lead people amid complexity to work together artfully to make things happen. We integrate multiple disciplines into a coherent whole. We make trade-offs across outcomes and resources. We evolve designs and build sustainable solutions. We are quiet achievers in a noisy world.

How then can we help people think and act differently through compounding crises knowing we also need to prepare for the next? How much of the way we think and act is transferable to the social context? Might we elevate our profession to help other managers and leaders shape society with the same care we display to our engineering? It’s a question for our time. If we stay quietly achieving while a world ‘snaps-back’, might our legacy contribution be a missed opportunity?

Dr Richard Hodge will explore these questions during his presentation to draw propositions to open discussion in the second half of proceedings.
