Thrive Through Disruption

Unexpected, rapid change is everywhere and our greatest weapon against it is to shift our thinking. This tenth anniversary Summit focuses on research and insight that can help people, and organizations, succeed in turbulent times.

Join us this October as we explore the science of improved leadership: being more agile, accelerating learning, lifting engagement, transforming performance, raising diversity and inclusion and leveraging technology, all while undergoing intense and constant change. Don’t miss this important event, rated by INC. magazine in 2016 as one of the best conferences in the world.

Keynote

Organizations, Disruption and Brains

When disruption is perceived as threat, how do we best respond? What should leaders and organizations be aware of in everything from strategic decision-making to launching new innovations to day-to-day operations? How can HR and talent professionals play a stronger role in raising the company’s resilience? What neuroscience principles can help us move toward our own goals, even as the world changes around us?

Keynote

The Purpose of Purpose

The brain organizes around a conscious or unconscious purpose every waking moment. Can the same be said for organizations? Explore the deeper science of what is a ‘purpose’, how purpose works in the brain, and how larger systems reflect that pattern. Discover why “why” matters so much at every level of leadership, in creating clarity, focus and engagement.

The New Performance Management: Meets or Exceeds Expectations?

Performance Management is continuing to shift from a focus on compliance and ratings, to a more nuanced effort to enable better conversations. After three years of closely tracking this trend, we are ready, in this session, to summarize the results and insights. We describe how technology is continuing to transform this space, and we unpack new research that highlights what’s truly working and what’s next.

Trends & Breakthroughs

Increase Inclusion

Inclusion is an increasing priority for many organizations today, involving challenges that are related to – but also distinct from – the challenges of increasing diversity. Discover what the science suggests is key to becoming more inclusive at an organizational level, and the mistakes some organizations are making. Learn from the pioneers and explore insights from year one of a new annual research study.

Transform Feedback

Everyone agrees one leadership behavior would help people improve their practice: More and better feedback. Yet despite decades of attempts, the needle has hardly moved in most organizations on this issue. This session explores a breakthrough approach to transforming feedback, in an experiential setting replicating some lab work currently underway.

Keynote

Learning in a Digital Age

Organizational change is accelerating, driven by technological breakthroughs that often reflect a better understanding of machine learning than human learning. Dive into important (but often unexplored questions) about the adoption of technology and the implementation of expanded prowess. How much can adults truly learn? What bottlenecks are inevitable, and how do we work around them? How can we better curate learning pathways? How do we fix the ‘model muddle’? And what emerging breakthroughs can help us accelerate learning overall?

Keynote

The Neuroscience of the Agile Organization

What is the neuroscience of becoming more fast-paced? What does it take to listen closer to the market, notice signals earlier, orient toward change more decisively, and follow through faster? How much can the brain truly change, and what’s the best way to make that happen? How can digital solutions help, and not be another ‘to do’? This session brings together thinkers from brain and management research to explore ways of thinking about agility, providing a framework for becoming more agile for any size organization.

Trends & Breakthroughs

Engagement and Employee Experience

Employee engagement, enabled by digital technology, is expanding its reach. How do we also make it personal, more accurate and more useful? Explore the science of engagement in the brain and how to think about assessing and nudging a culture in new ways.

Break Bias: From Raising Awareness to Sustained Change

Many organizations have chosen to formally address the unconscious biases that constrain decisions. But few organizations are getting the results they want from their efforts. In this session we explore the track record to date: the wins, challenges and opportunities. Separate the signal from the noise by exploring the science of bias mitigation, and digging into data from year one of a new annual research study.

The Corporate Triathlete: Resilience in the Age of Overwhelm

What does it take to deliver sustained peak performance when every day could be an overwhelm of complexity and uncertainty? How do we better prepare leaders at every level to lead in the environment today? Discover the most critical factors for leaders to advance beyond the pack and stay on track amidst disruptive times.

The Team Neural Synchrony Challenge

For the first time researchers can track multiple brains at once as people work together in teams. When teams are more effective, their brain activity is more synchronized. Join one of the leaders of this research, Dr. Jay Van Bavel, to explore a live demonstration of neural synchrony, team up with fellow audience members for a challenge, and discuss future directions in the neuroscience of team effectiveness.

Your Brain on Autopilot: How Goal Pursuit Really Works

Many people misunderstand the value and impact of “goal setting” and related practices: for example, the use of specific, clear, and highly challenging deliverables to boost performance. In this session you’ll discover what is new, surprising and important about neuroscience research and goal pursuit and attainment.

Measurement at the Threshold of Change

The way we measure the impact of change, learning and leadership programs needs an update. Done well, measurement can be a critical component of both constantly improving an initiative as well as deepening its impact. Discover fresh ideas from the lab and the field, based closely on a deeper understanding of how people demonstrate their acumen.

So Much to Learn, so Little Time

Our ability to learn is one of the most developable skills, yet much of the science about learning has not yet made its way into organizational training and employee development practices. What are the very best ways to better help learners to learn faster, better, easier?  Explore all this, hearing directly from some of today’s leading memory researchers.

Keynote

Time to Kill the 9 Box?

Performance management has long relied on simple analytic tools (like the 9 box matrix) to deploy a company’s mix of talent. Now it may be evolving to focus more on growth and development. How do we need to rethink our talent processes? If we regard them through a growth mindset perspective, what else needs to change? Explore insights from the science, and case studies from several pioneers in talent planning
