ACCESSE18 Theme: Adaptive Leadership in a Changing World

As leaders of organizations which seek to solve many of the world’s largest problems, change is inevitable. When change requires you to challenge people’s familiar reality, they may feel threatened and resist moving forward. This resistance along with outside influences, multifarious challenges and increased competition require associations to purposefully evolve over time and embrace the new paradigm of perpetual change. Leaders need to be able to read the terrain, be prepared for anything and push through to make a significant transformation.

ACCESSE18 endeavors to harness the power and expertise of both the 
 network and external thought leaders to explore the outside influences, challenges brought on by advances in science and engineering, strategies to successfully embrace change and the critical skill set needed to drive systematic change in an increasingly complex world.
