Join U of T alumni and friends for an intriguing lecture by David Zweig, Associate Professor of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources Management of the Department of Management at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

U of T Where You Are Banner

COVID has challenged our assumptions about everything - from how and where we work to how we adapt as leaders to this new working reality. In this talk, Professor David Zweig will discuss how traditional approaches to leadership and our notions of leadership as control are an illusion and doomed to fail. Professor Zweig will discuss how leaders can adapt their leadership styles to our new reality of remote work, move away from a culture of dissatisfaction and distrust, and shape new cultures that are aligned with a re-ignited interest for meaningful work.

Please contact Alumni Relations, if you require information in an alternate format, or if any other arrangements can make this event accessible to you.
