Masterclass: Leading through Paradox

Professor Marianne W. Lewis is Dean of Cass Business School, City, University of London and is an international thought leader in the field of leadership and organisational paradoxes.

In this exclusive masterclass, she will share the power of a paradox lens. Sharpened through two decades of research, Professor Lewis will discuss how great leaders help their organisations thrive with tensions intensified by rapid change and rising complexity. How do leaders ensure that their organisations excel at disciplined efficiency for today and bold innovation that enables tomorrow? How do they deliver on financial targets to thrill their shareholders, while achieving greater social purpose that ensures sustainability? How do they build global integration and scale, as they meet diverse local needs? Rather than tradeoffs, paradoxical leaders stress synergies and learning.

Professor Lewis’s work appears in leading journals as the Harvard Business Review, Academy of Management Journal, and Organization Science. Her paper, “Exploring paradox: Toward a more comprehensive guide” received the Academy of Management Review Best Paper Award in 2000 and is among the most cited in the field.

You can start networking with your fellow alumni online by joining our Germany Alumni - Cass Business School & City, University of London LinkedIn group. We hope that you will join us for an evening of networking and reminiscence of your time at the University.

This event is FREE to attend, but registration is required below.
