Reinvention as a Challenge for Leadership

Online book-launch event with
professor Anthony Elliott

It is our privilege to invite you to this online event in celebration of the release of the new edition of Reinvention, by professor Anthony ElliottUniversity of South Australia. The event offers leadership practitioners the perspective and understanding global worklife change on a level beyond the ones of leadership manuals.

In the discussion moderated by Bo-Magnus Salenius, founder of TalentMiles, and Ralf Blomqvist, expert in customer insight, professor Elliott invites us to recognise how pressures to repeated reinvention, ”makeovers”, increasingly shape worklife, its people, their careers and organisations of work. Reinvention concerns a global, cultural drive to transform social practises. This imperative, advanced by organisations, politicians, personal trainers and therapy gurus, emphasizes that reinvention, is the only adequate personal response to life in a global world.
