More is demanded of our leaders today than perhaps ever before. Regardless of industry and professional context, the world of work has become more uncertain, unpredictable, complex and global. This gives rise to important questions about the necessary qualities and capabilities of leaders, how to equip them for the challenges that they face and how they can enable high performing, sustainable work practices that support their own wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of others. In this seminar, we will consider how the challenges of leadership might be usefully considered through the lens of antifragility, a term coined by the essayist and former financial market trader Nassim Taleb. Drawing on the presenter’s own ongoing work in this field, this seminar will consider how antifragility differs from the related concepts of resilience and mental toughness, how this quality might be nurtured in ourselves and others and what antifragility might have to teach us about thriving in a complex world.
