Deliberately or not, the way we work was not designed with humans in mind. In this session, we will unpack what a more human-centric workplace might look like — and what organizations could get out of it.

What Growth Mindset is Doing for Organizations

NLI’s industry research shows that organizations that make growth mindset a cultural imperative see a real improvement in talent outcomes: increased employee engagement, greater resilience during hard times, and more. This session will address a combination of industry research and concrete strategies that will help you make the case for growth mindset initiatives in your own organization and institute growth mindset as a cultural norm.

The “Speaking Up” Continuum

Whether it’s a creative new idea or an observed altercation, we all have confidence that people will speak up “when the time is right.” But research shows that organizational cultures suppress voices far more often than they raise them. Join a panel of distinguished business leaders and scientists for a discussion on why we’re seldom as vocal as we’d like to be (hint: it’s a brain thing), and share practical tools for shifting from a culture of “I would speak up” to a culture of “I do speak up.”

Empathy in Action

One of the most uniquely human traits is our capacity for empathy. Whether it’s user experience or employee engagement, human behavior is driven by our need for others to empathize with our core drivers — like our desire for status, certainty, autonomy, relatedness, and fairness. Top researchers will reveal how our behavior is guided in this way — and how leaders can leverage this finding to improve everything from designing products to delivering better change management, to understanding engagement, to thinking about inclusion, to improving everyday conversations.

Create Clarity

Determining where to focus our attention has never been more important than today. When we’re overwhelmed by floods of information and competing priorities, what constructs can learning and change initiatives follow to ensure people have the clarity and capacity to perform at their best?

Humanize Performance Management

Clarity is hard to find when it comes to performance management. According to NLI’s research, at least half of organizations today are unclear about what changes to make, despite many more knowing they want to make a change.

In this session we will share initial findings from our current research in performance management, focusing on where companies are along their journey and how they are redesigning PM systems to be more human-centered.

We’ll address questions such as:

Scale Learning

The phrase “workplace learning” summons the image of individuals sitting alone with a screen. But humans are naturally social — and so much of the best learning happens in social settings.
In this session, we’ll dive into the unique value of social learning, and unpack practical strategies for ensuring that social learning is focused, productive and inclusive.
