Jake Messersmith

Being a Change Agent: A Primer on Adaptive Leadership
with Dr. Jake Messersmith

Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Being a “leader” is not about a position or a title. Leadership is something that you exercise, that you practice, that you do. In fact, the most critical organizational challenges are those that cannot be resolved by dictate from the boss or fixed through technical proficiency. Critical challenges require adaptation, experimentation and change. Critical challenges require leaders from within all areas of the organization to carefully assess and identify the ways that organizational habits, routines, norms and culture are inhibiting the mission.

Dr. Sam Nelson

The Key to Your Organization’s Survival: Innovation
with Dr. Sam Nelson

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Companies are faced with continuous pressure to be innovative. They must also innovate in a variety of areas: product development, customer service, marketing and employee engagement. However, the necessary components to driving innovation are also counter intuitive to organizations that have been able to scale successfully. The mechanisms to drive consistency and scalability often conflict with processes needed to foster innovation. Dr. Samuel Nelson, director of UNL’s Center for Entrepreneurship, will discuss how organizations can strive to find the right balance between these two competing pressures.
