Welcome to MIT SMR’s spring webinar series, Leading Through Radically Changing Times. Running throughout the spring and moderated by editor in chief Paul Michelman, this special series will feature academic experts and other leading thinkers addressing topics of immediate concern — such as leading through crises and mastering remote work and virtual collaboration — as well as topics that should be on the agenda of executives as we move out of the period of disruption.
We have an extraordinary opportunity to engage with ideas and each other as we continue to learn and prepare ourselves for the new challenges ahead. Check back here for registration opportunities throughout the spring, or sign up to get event notifications delivered to your inbox.
