Hamza Khan, Future of Work Expert and Author of Leadership, Reinvented

The Bright S.I.D.E. of Leadership: The Complexity of Managing People in the New Normal

As a result of the sudden and drastic changes brought about by the pandemic, organizational leaders across the country were forced to contend with plummeting employee morale, engagement, productivity and retention. Two years later, emerging from chaos, they face another challenge: navigating a fast-approaching future of work—an always-on “new abnormal” characterized by new modes of work, as well as shifting employee behaviours and expectations. To meet this challenge, organizations require a renewed leadership ethos and significant leap beyond the old (and increasingly counterproductive) management paradigms. Enter “modern leadership”—a practical system of action that is profoundly people-centric, change-friendly, self-disrupting and values-driven. “Leadership, Reinvented” author Hamza Khan makes the case that tomorrow’s employees must be led instead of managed. And that by operationalizing the intertwined values of innovation, diversity and empathy, modern leaders can unlock the full potential of their organization. In this talk, leaders at the Campbell Institute Symposium will:

● Familiarize themselves with four definitive reasons why organizations fail to navigate difficult change
● Understand how to operationalize and maximize four modern leadership values as a way to future-proof leadership style
● With the help of contemporary case studies, adopt a more human- centric approach to leading through change

Featuring Kristina Anderson
As the world witnessed the tragedy that transpired on the Virginia Tech campus in April of 2007, the lives of Kristina Anderson and her classmates rapidly changed as a student gunman entered her classroom and committed one of the worst acts of violence in history. Shot three times within twelve minutes, Ms. Anderson will share a candid, first-hand account of her personal experience, the journey towards recovery in survivorship, and her mission to educate others in how to take personal accountability to help prevent violence, respond and recover within our communities and workplaces.

Kristina is founder of the Koshka Foundation for Safe Schools, a non-profit that provides training on the prevention of school and workplace violence, education on active shooter preparedness and consultation on post-crisis recovery. Ms. Anderson is also co-founder of LiveSafe, a mobile technology communication platform for sharing safety-related information that is used by over 100 college campuses, as well as corporations and hospitals.
