Jason Ma Masterclass - Leadership 3.0: Mentoring and Transforming Teams For Success

The future of work and talent has arrived, and change is not only constant, but also accelerating. Worldwide, the growing impact of technologies (especially AI), digital transformation, globalization, intergenerational and cultural shifts, diversity, as well as the changing nature of careers and the “gig economy,” are raising people’s and companies’ productivity and connectivity. At the same time, these factors, along with social media, geopolitical turbulence, educational system issues, among other causes, are increasing stress, anxiety, fear, and already intense competition.

Linear career conformity and political correctness don’t seem to work well anymore. To navigate effectively through the world’s ever-changing market and talent dynamics, executives and managers must rethink and enhance their leadership skills in dealing with this unprecedented workforce, especially Millennial and Gen Z achievers.

Let trusted success coach/mentor, C-suite strategic advisor, and masterclass leader Jason Ma inspire and enlighten you on the why’s, what’s, and how’s.
