Tenfold Masterclass with Harvard Professor Amy Edmondson - 23 July 2020
High performance and finding new growth were topics du jour for all business leaders at the start of 2020 until COVID19 changed the rhetoric dramatically. Given Australia's emergence from the pandemic ahead of most developed economies we need to start shifting the dialogue back to where growth will come from and how to create thriving and innovative workplaces again. For over 20 years Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management at the Harvard Business School Amy Edmondson has been researching what high performing teams from around the world across multiple industries do differently. The number one success variable based on the teams she and others such as Google have studied is what Amy calls 'psychological safety', i.e. creating an environment where people feel safe to take interpersonal risk. Tenfold Australia are pleased to have Professor Edmondson join us for this interactive online discussion designed for senior leadership teams to attend together. We will discuss why psychological safety is so critical to high performance, innovation and growth, and how leaders can promote psychological safety in their workplaces whether your people are in the office or working remotely.

Tenfold Masterclass with LBS Professor Julian Birkinshaw - 23 Sept 2020
Many would argue the 2007 financial crisis boiled down to toxic management. Conversely our recovery from the current crisis depends on great management. But what does 'great' look like? This question was difficult to answer pre-COVID19 and even harder now in the new world of work. What we know, according to Professor Birkinshaw, is that given the "fog of the future" we need to change our approach to strategic management to become both agile and resilient, managing both the upside opportunity and downside risk. Professor Birkinshaw has been researching and advising multinationals around the world on the topic of management innovation for his entire career. During this Tenfold Masterclass we explored how your organisation can become more strategically resilient and fit for an increasingly uncertain future.
Tenfold Masterclass with Prof Raj Sisodia - 20 October 2020
"How a CEO or company showed up in 2020 will be a new and powerful yardstick by which they are measured.” This provocation in a recent HBR article by Raj Sisodia, Paul Polman and Kip Tindell challenges all leaders to deeply reflect on their leadership impact during the pandemic and consider what their leadership legacy will be as the world emerges from COVID19. During this conversation with Raj we will explore his decades of deep research about how the world’s most successful multinationals embrace a more conscious approach to business where doing good and doing well go hand in hand, evidenced more so than ever during this year’s crisis. Companies such as Amazon, Adobe, 3M, Colgate Palmolive, IKEA and Unilever, amongst many others, understand that profit and purpose can coexist, and sustainable profit is actually dependent on a higher purpose, amongst other attributes Raj has identified in his research. Please join us for this Tenfold Masterclass with your top team at 10am on October 20 to explore how your organisation can embrace the tenets of conscious capitalism to ensure the long term performance of your organisation, its resilience in the face of future crises, and its contribution to a stronger society.
Tenfold Dialogue with the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull - 15 October 2020
For most leaders, 2020 has been one of greatest tests of their career to date. It’s during times like these that drawing insights from those that have previously prevailed and endured in periods of uncertainty and volatility is invaluable. Malcolm Turnbull is such a leader. Malcolm has traversed the highest levels of education as a Rhodes Scholar, won numerous high profile cases as a barrister, founded multiple businesses as an entrepreneur, led a multinational business as Managing Director Goldman Sachs Australia and of course, led our nation as Australia’s 29th Prime Minister. Few have had such a diverse career and influenced reform across multiple sectors. In this this dialogue with Malcolm he will share the leadership lessons he has learned from his successful and high profile career.
