Proposed Program Agenda*

⇒Your Brain: What’s New: Recent insights from neuroscience have greatly expanded the knowledge of how the brain works—and what it means for those who lead in high stakes, high pressure situations.

⇒The Situation: Beyond Situational Awareness: NPLI faculty have developed two new tools—the POP-DOC Loop and The Situation Map to help leaders better understand what they confront and maintain disciplined thinking as the decide what should be done.

⇒Connectivity: Swarm Leadership: Drawing on their research into the Boston Marathon bombing response, NPLI faculty will share a leadership behavior model designed to optimize multi-organizational performance within ICS/NIMS and other structured incident management systems.

⇒Agile Meta-Leadership: Adaptation & Transformation: Among the most vexing challenges facing leaders today for the components of their organizations to adapt swiftly, simultaneously, and synchronously to fast-evolving challenges. Invited speakers Peter Neffenger (former TSA Administrator) and Richard Serino (former FEMA Deputy Administrator) share practical meta-leadership experiences leading an interactive dialog.

⇒Next Gen: Developing Emerging Meta-Leaders: In effective organizations, leadership is cultivated in a development arc from top to bottom, novice to master, across a multi-generational workforce. NPLI faculty present their latest research and lead a discussion on changing expectations and opportunities.

⇒Meta-leadership in a Turbulent World: Presentation by (invited) guest speaker Thomas Bossert, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security Counter-Terrorism. Followed by NPLI faculty facilitating a discussion on the meta-leadership challenges and opportunities inherent in the most pressing emerging threats.
