Dr. Chris Brauer
Building high performance teams and resilient businesses in uncertain times
New goods and products, methods of production, new markets, organisation, and demand are the impulses that keep economies in motion. Creative destruction incessantly revolutionises from within, destroying what came before, incessantly rebuilding and creating what comes next, often through technology adoption at scale. In this talk Dr Chris Brauer explores the three biggest challenges to developing a high performance culture in organisations and becoming a lighthouse in the storm of creative destruction.
