Keynote address: the case for optimism - what are you optimistic about? IACCM APAC Conference 2019
Author: Victor Perton, Author, The Case for Optimism: The Optimists' Voices
How many business leaders do you know who aren't optimists? Indeed, IACCM surveys have suggested that our members often attribute failed projects to the over-optimism of top management. As a result, many see the role of contract and commercial managers as bringing balance, a dose of reality, facing up to the real risks. For the executive optimists, this may be viewed as pessimism, negativity - and lead to us having limited or late involvement. Optimism is a good trait. Research shows it is associated with better health, a longer life and greater success. How can we best temper our need to be commercially realistic with a healthy dose of optimism - the sort of attitude that gains attention and increases our value? In this fascinating and energising session, Victor will inspire, amuse and be your guide to discovering how you can apply optimism within your business role and life in general, acknowledging the mantra 'All good leadership is optimistic'.
