THE EIGHT ELEMENTS OF DISRUPTIVE LEADERSHIP

Many of today’s business leaders are ill-equipped for the demands of leadership in the 21st century,
where ‘digital’ and ‘disruptive’ experience & skills mean the difference between success and failure in
leading businesses of all sizes and sectors, and are the number 1 determinant of whether you get that
next job, or someone else beats you to it.

In this energizing masterclass, Stephen Scheeler shares his personal insights into the secrets of great
leadership in the 21st century. From disruptive Silicon Valley giant Facebook to incumbent corporate
titans, Stephen draws on his unparalleled leadership experience to offer a provocative and unique
prescription for leaders of businesses large and small on how to transform their personal leadership
style, rapidly gain impressive digital experience and insight, and remake themselves into versatile,
high-impact, disruptive leaders.

From humility and curiosity, to speed, agility and transparency, Stephen offers actionable advice for
every business leader on how to remake themselves from corporate also-rans into leadership rock stars!

Through The Eight Elements of Disruptive Leadership you will:


• Increase your capacity to articulate a compelling vision for yourself and your team
• Deepen your command of humility and curiosity as pillars of your leadership formula
• Build new capabilities in data dexterity and customer obsession
• Learn how adaptability can help you reimagine yourself as a leader, and take your career in exciting
new directions
• Master new techniques for harnessing transparency and speed as powerful weapons in your
leadership arsenal
• Build a simple but powerful plan for remaking yourself as a disruptive, digitally-savvy leader for the
21st century

Stephen has a record of transformative business leadership which few can emulate. From his recent
tenure as one of Facebook’s most senior global executives, to senior executive roles at iconic Australian
giants Lion and Westfield, to his current roles as founder of The Digital CEO and Senior Advisor to
McKinsey & Company – Stephen has thrived at the frontier of technology, disruption and change
for 25 years.

Attend this exclusive training course to gain invaluable insight that you are unlikely to gain anywhere
else. This training course is a must attend for anyone serious about leading in a digital economy where
disrupting the status quo is vital to business growth and success.
