Overview

 

How Being New, Naïve, and Even Clueless Can Be an Asset

In a rapidly changing world, experience can be a curse. Rookies are unencumbered, with no baggage to weigh them down, no resources to burden them, and no track record to limit their thinking or aspirations.

For today’s knowledge workers, constant learning is more valuable than mastery. Leadership expert Liz Wiseman argues that the most successful rookies are hunter-gatherers — alert and seeking, cautious but quick like firewalkers, and hungry and relentless like pioneers.

Most importantly, she identifies a breed of leaders she refers to as “perpetual rookies.” Despite years of experience, they retain their rookie smarts, thinking and operating with the mindsets and practices of these high-performing rookies.

This webcast explores the questions every experienced professional faces: “Will my knowledge and skills become obsolete and irrelevant? Will a young, inexperienced newcomer upend my company or me? How can I keep up?”

The answer is to stay fresh, keep learning, and know when to think like a rookie.

What You Will Learn

 

Liz will offer vivid illustrations, personal reflection, and practical tools to help leaders keep themselves and their entire team fresh, relevant, and performing at the top of their game.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
