Two great events and a workshop were organized last week by CEO Clubs Greece and CEO Clubs Romania.  The topic was Leadership Agility, a more than “hot” topic in times of chaotic change.  Keynote Speaker was Bill Joiner of ChangeWise.  Bill is a seasoned leadership expert and organizational change consultant, with 30 years of experience completing successful engagements with companies based in the US, Canada, and Europe. He is co-author of the book Leadership Agility, and speaks about leadership agility, partners with senior leaders in developing high performing teams, creating breakthrough strategies, leading organizational change, and redesigning business processes. For nine years, Bill served as an adjunct faculty member for the Leadership for Change program at Boston College. He has a BA and MBA from Southern Methodist University and earned his Doctorate in Organization Development at Harvard.

During both events, results of the “2012 CEO Viewpoint on Leadership Agility”, a survey in both countries was presented. For the first time more than 100 CEOs in each country have assessed the importance of agility to their organizations’ overall business success.  The results of the survey, which was conducted in cooperation with Sargia Partners and Focus Bari, were impressive and so was their presentation, in Athens from Ms Georgia Kartsanis President of CEO Clubs Greece and in Bucharest from Mr Sotiris Chatzidakis CEO of CEO Clubs Greece.  The events took place at the Hilton Athens and Hilton Bucharest. STIRIXIS Group was one of the sponsors of the event of CEO Clubs Romania in Bucharest and Alex in Athens welcomed the Club’s CEOs and their honored guests on behalf of the Advisory Board of CEO Clubs Greece.
