We live and work in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world.

New business models are shifting duties to teams instead of individuals, which means people are working more closely together. It also means leaders have to adapt their leadership style to guide the intricacies of human dynamics and channel collective knowledge.

How can leaders create learning environments that navigate the complexity of interpersonal relationships, learn (and improve!) through dialogue and conflict, overcome the human element of barriers to change, and support the growth and engagement of their employees?
