Leading and building culture through transition and change

Tasked to lead the integration of Fairfax’s four Canadian P&C companies back in 2011, Northbridge Financial’s CEO Silvy Wright has learned a few things about leading during times of intense transition and change. Having recently celebrated the company’s 10-year anniversary, she will join us to share insights on the company’s journey, including:

  • The importance of proactively managing culture through change

  • Creating alignment across the organization

  • Where to focus and make investments

As workplaces navigate back to a COVID-19 shaped "new normal" — one that continues to evolve quickly — many of the insights will be relevant for managers currently leading teams through that transition.
