The Emerging Leadership Paradigm: How Portland Will Lead the Way

1845 SW Salmon Street
Portland, OR 97205, US (map)

26 Founders Room



Over the last 50 years the business environment has become more complex. The old paradigm of simply using fixed measures that predictably control outcomes is failing to produce the results they once did. New forces beyond the efficient flow of activity are becoming more significant.

PANELISTS: Norman Wolfe, Founder, Quantum Leaders Tom Sedory, Director of IT & Sustainability, Nike Danielle Forsyth, CEO & Co-Founder, Thetus Corporation Renee Spears, President & Founder, Rose City Mortgage David Garnand, Executive Director, College Housing NW

The new emerging paradigm moves us from a mechanistic orientation to one that views the organization as a living organism. This paradigm views organizations as an integral part of an eco-system, where purpose, meaning and relationships are important key drivers of success. These organizations are dynamic, responsive to ever-changing conditions, transparent and make a positive impact. Like newly planted seeds, a new paradigm needs soil to be nurtured and grown in. Portland’s unique culture provides the nutrients to make this the perfect location for companies to lead the way to a new world of business.
