Invitation to HELA Masterclass – Navigating the Complex and Uncertain Future with Triarchic Leadership
The purpose of this 3-hour master class is to equip leaders with the knowledge and understanding of the Triarchic Theory of Cognitive Disposition, empowering them to effectively navigate the complexities and uncertainties in today's rapidly changing world.
The masterclass deals with the following question: To what extent are the traditional knowledge production paradigms valuable to the modern research discourse? The university traditions on research come under focus. The purpose of this 3-hour masterclass is to equip researchers with the knowledge and understanding of knowledge co-production and the value of knowledge creation and distribution to provide value to the university community within the ambit of Education 5.0 and the growing need for research outcomes as societal value.
This Critical Conversation will introduce the Triarchic Leadership Mindset for navigating the complex today and uncertain tomorrow. Mental processes form the bedrock of leadership thinking, reasoning, and acting, and the right mindset is critical for navigating the complex, chaotic, and unpredictable times we find ourselves in, let alone an uncertain future. This Critical Conversation will introduce attendees to the appropriate mindset required to successfully lead in these challenging times.
We will discuss the capabilities and limitations of current popular AI tools such as ChatGPT. Our goal is to explore what machine intelligence might look like, how far along we are, and what threats it may pose in the future. We will survey current uses of AI and ML in production environments as a baseline for informed forecasting.
