Behavioural Science Series: “Reinventing Your Career – what got you here, won’t get you there” with Herminia Ibarra
Leadership expert Herminia Ibarra upends traditional, introspective advice and proposes that you can change your way of thinking by acting first.
She will share her unorthodox methods on how actuaries can step up for better impact – by acting first and then thinking later —and not relying on Insight (internal knowledge, past experience and thinking) but Outsight (external knowledge, new experience and acting). Ibarra’s approach will be a revolution in the way the IFoA and traditional actuaries approach to change.
In a world of unprecedented change and uncertainty, we need new tools and mindsets to navigate shifting and multiple paradigms. As Einstein said, “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”
All too often, we remain stuck in outdated mindsets and modes of operating, even when
they recognize the need to reinvent themselves.
With colourful stories and vivid research insights, this interactive session shows how the most effective way to change is through action, not reflection, and how to apply a growth mindset to our leadership capacities.
Following her presentation, Herminia Ibarra will be joined by Louise Pryor, incoming IFoA President, and Hash Piperdy, Managing Director at Epitome Global, for a panel discussion around the session’s themes.
I will be chairing the panel. See you at the event.
