10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Build an A Team
Whitney Johnson, bestselling author, executive and performance coach, innovation thinker

Worried about irrelevance? Are you or your company about to be disrupted? If you are looking for a surefire sign, look at where your workforce is on the S-curve. Based on Whitney Johnson’s proprietary research around disruption, every organization is a collection of individual S – or learning - curves. You build an A-team by optimizing these individual curves, including yours. In this session, you will learn how to manage people all along the S-curve and what to do when they reach the top of the curve. As employees are allowed, even required, to surf their individual S-curve waves, disrupting themselves, you will not only be less vulnerable to disruption, you’ll get the gold star: be a boss people want to work for.

The Mind of the Leader
Rasmus Hougaard, author and founder of The Potential Project
Jacqueline Carter, author and partner of The Potential Project

Most leaders think they’re effective at motivating their employees, but study after study shows that employees are more disengaged and uninspired than ever. The solution lies not in more management training or fun off-sites, but in looking within – into the mind of the leader. This session will explore the three qualities stand out as being foundational for leaders today: mindfulness, selflessness and compassion.
