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 Neuroscience of Smarter Teams

The smartest teams have the most insights and mitigate the most bias, with the least amount of threat. They also tend to manage this with little process loss. But how? Can neuroscience help us  better understand and replicate this kind of team intelligence throughout an organization? Our panel will shed light on what makes the best teams solve problems so efficiently. What happens in their brains when they work together towards a shared goal? We will unpack the latest research and share actionable insights leaders can use to build smarter teams of their own.

Review Time for Performance Management

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.

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.

D&I: What Works

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.
