In an ever changing, complex world and business landscape, how do Executive Education professionals enable business leaders to prepare, transform and thrive? “Sensemaking", a term introduced by Karl Weick, refers to how we structure the unknown so as to be able to act in it. Sensemaking involves coming up with a plausible understanding—a map—of a shifting world; testing this map with others through data collection, action, and conversation; and then refining, or abandoning, the map depending on how credible it is. Sensemaking enables leaders to have a better grasp of what is going on in their environments, thus facilitating other leadership activities such as visioning, relating, and inventing.”

We’re hosting an interactive panel discussion featuring Executive Education leaders from around the globe on Thursday, October 20th. In this session, panelists from London Business School, Imperial College Business School and Wharton Online will discuss how to design meaningful sense-making learning experiences while maintaining authenticity, as well as how to teach problem-solving to aid in the growth of business leaders.

We hope you’ll join us for this interactive and insightful session hosted on Engageli.
