Web Seminars

The Future of Aging (on demand)

Presenter: Ken Dychtwald, PhD, President and CEO, Age Wave.

The aging of America will impact nearly every aspect of our society: from the structure and function of healthcare, to the role of financial planning, to urban design, to the training of social workers. These shifts represent both massive challenges and enormous opportunities. What kind of leadership is required to orchestrate the transformation to an aged society? What skills, competencies and personal traits must 21st century leaders in the field of gerontology possess? What does a great leader do, and how do they learn to do it? What new abilities are required for effective aging-related leadership in the 21st century?
