Leadership, Governance and Change: Top Tips for Navigating the Chaos

It might be the end of the institution as we know it and Bob Dylan predicted this way before REM even got a look in when he said “The times they are a changin’”.

So, as Web/Digital Managers, how do we best cope with this constant change whilst still keeping the web/digital ship sailing, at the same time as managing and supporting others through it, and maintaining a sound framework for our digital presence?

The answer could lie in Leadership and Governance.

Over a number of years Claire Gibbons has undertaken Leadership development training through the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and through the ‘Bradford Leader’ initiative, under the Leaderful Partnership. Her recent consultancy work has reignited a keen interest in Digital Governance with Lisa Welchman being her Digital Pop Star of the moment.

Come along and explore wicked problems and clumsy solutions; discuss the differences between leadership, management and governance; find out what type of leader you are; explore the skills needed to be a Digital Leader today; and see how small wins, standards and policies just might navigate you through the chaos.
