Andy Worshek: Keynote Presentation
In this highly interactive, entertaining and fast-moving session, Andy Worshek delivers the powerful message that leadership is not for the select few at the top. In highly effective organizations, there are leaders at every level. Creating Intent-Based Leadership Organizations results in a workplace where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity. It’s a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work-a place where everyone is a leader. Intent-Based Leaders create an environment for people to contribute so that they feel valued. They push control and decision-making down the organization to the people with the information inviting them to take ownership and engage. These leaders maintain unity of effort by ensuring the supporting pillars of technical competence and organizational clarity are in place.
Breakout Session (repeats)
This Leadership Workshop strives to get people to Think Like a Leader, Act Like a Leader and Talk Like a Leader. Learn how to develop mechanisms to create engaged workplaces where people will naturally grow into leaders. Based upon the science that we can rewire our brains, along with practical examples and scenario based training, this workshop lays out the frame work to changing culture.
Dr. Alex Bolinger: Overcoming Resistance to Change: A Case Study from Australia’s Big Dry
Leading change is a critical task of leaders in today’s fast-paced, rapidly shifting competitive environments. But resistance to change can be fierce. In this session, participants will learn about key sources of resistance to change and tactics for overcoming them using an extended case study from Australia’s experience with water shortages during the “Big Dry.”
Stacey Gibson: #metoo, now what? Strategies for Dealing with Workplace Harassment
Sexual discrimination and harassment have been major topics in the media recently with movements such as #metoo and #timesup. In this session, participants will learn about the background of these movements, the culture of “naming and shaming” (and the problems inherent with that approach), and the legal basics to workplace discrimination and harassment. Participants will learn about strategies anyone in an organization can take to help prevent discrimination and harassment. The session will focus on the “grey area” – particularly, the difference between harassment in the legal sense and simply unprofessional behavior.
Mark Stevens: The Square and the Triangle-Leadership Made Simple
Leadership doesn’t have to be hard. However, too many leadership models and training programs make it feel that way. What looks complete can often be too difficult to put into practice, leaving leaders frustrated and more likely to go back to their old ways. The good news is that the answer to all the complexity is now here. mark Stevens, SHRM-SCP has devised a brilliantly simple approach to leadership that will provide you with tools you can immediately put into practice. Based on his book, The Square and the Triangle; The Power of Integrating Relationships and Results in Workplace Culture, leaders can now learn how to harness the power of relationships and achieve results more easily than they might have thought possible. This introduction to “The Square and the Triangle” will give you insight as to how the model works and how to begin to put it into practice.
Kathryn Kemp Guylay: Inspiring Others Through Authenticity
Creating change in today’s world requires much more than efficiency, effectiveness, and highly refined skillsets. Leaders gain followers not through perfection, power and logic, but through authenticity, connection, and emotion. Throughout the history of man and womankind, we have connected with each other through storytelling. Our primal brains are wired to interpret the world through stories. People we want to lead are much more likely to be moved by stories more than facts. Today’s most effective leaders must therefore be able to be great storytellers and must also understand the various ways to make these stories spread far and wide.
In this action-oriented presentation, Kathryn Kemp Guylay will first provide a framework for creating a great story. She will show attendees how they can mix elements from their own experiences to tell a moving story. The talk will proceed to tactical methods including book writing and publishing, podcasting, and video imagery that will allow leaders to create their very own “story bank” to inspire others.
David Horning: Discover Your Motivation
We know what we do for a living and how we do it, but do we know why? David inspires event attendees to ask “Why do I do what I do?” and “How can I do it better?” Imagine waking up each morning, ecstatic about getting to go to work. That feeling that comes from within is the result of an “Additude Attitude” which drives us. In this engaging presentation, audiences will learn how to:
Take advantage of the human brain and the built-in reward system that drives us
Find meaning within work by seeing it as a mission to serve and inspire others
Utilize your unique strengths, talents, and the tools at your disposal to make work more engaging
Realize that all perspectives are valuable, and that working together toward a mission builds trust and can positively transform a workplace culture
Practice leadership by listening, accepting, and adding value
