Think Outside the Building: How Advanced Leaders Can Change the World One Smart Innovation at a Time
Over a decade ago, renowned innovation expert Rosabeth Moss Kanter co-founded and then directed Harvard’s Advanced Leadership Initiative. Her breakthrough work with hundreds of successful professionals and executives, as well as aspiring young entrepreneurs, identifies the leadership paradigm of the future: the ability to “think outside the building” to overcome establishment paralysis and produce significant innovation for a better world.
“Thinking inside the building”—using the authority of position—can work in corporate settings, but not when you have to work with, through, or around people with independent power bases, and within challenging cultural and political situations. Kanter’s insight into advanced leadership is an important and original contribution, one that transcends conventional practice.
Please join us to welcome one of the leading business thinkers of the world as she offers a bold, new theory of advanced leadership for tackling the world’s complex, messy, and recalcitrant social and environmental problems.
Tickets are $35 per person and include a signed copy of the book as well as drinks and light bites.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter is an influential and well-known professor at Harvard Business School (holding the Ernest L. Arbuckle Professorship), specializing in strategy, innovation, and leadership for change.
