2020 — Virtual Sponsors
The Science of Change at ScaleUncertainty is to be expected during a panic, but it can also spark new opportunities to reimagine culture. Learn how to build the habits and systems to support organization-wide change and create not just a new normal, but a better normal.
The AGES Model®Equip your organization with the tools to learn. Discover the foundational science of learning and NLI’s learning model, AGES, from leading scientists and practitioners.
Shifting PerspectivesPerspective taking & empathy can build better relationships and improve business outcomes, but it’s easier said than done. Learn what gets in the way of effective perspective taking and how to overcome those obstacles from leading scientists.
The SEEDS Model®Learn the foundational science of bias and how NLI’s model, SEEDS, can help you notice where these biases impact your decisions and beliefs. Join “Mitigate Bias in Organizations” on Day 2 to discover strategies that address these biases.
Learning in a Disrupted AgeThere is no limit to the things we can and should be learning, including re-learning how to learn in this era of virtual work. Despite the changing learning environment—moving out of classrooms and group settings, and into singular, virtual worlds—the foundational science of learning persists. Here’s how to apply that science in the virtual world.
The SCARF® ModelLearn the foundational science of motivation and threat and NLI’s guiding model, SCARF, from leading scientists and practitioners.
Equity & FairnessEquity, fairness, and justice are integral to a society where all can thrive, but what makes these three concepts different, and how can they work together? We’ll unpack how equity, fairness and justice affect our brains and our communities so that we can better use them as tools to create a more just world.
The Impact of InsightInsights are powerful, and understanding the foundational science behind them can help you foster them in your own life and inspire others to have them as well. In this session, you’ll hear about that science from leading researchers and practitioners.
Influence to Increase Buy InA powerful movement needs committed stakeholders, so it’s integral to be able to influence those around you and get them on board. This session will feature a panel of scientists offering insights on how to secure buy-in on your next change initiative.
Build a Better NormalIn this new world of work it’s important to move from depletive to regenerative. Join this session to hear how to harness the rewards of autonomy to put employees at the center of your company – creating a better normal.
Science of Psychological SafetyDo your employees feel safe to be themselves? Do they feel heard and respected? In this session, discover how creating a climate of psychological safety can unlock potential in your teams.
Amplify AllyshipInternational calls for racial justice have inspired leaders everywhere to unite their teams and promote fairness. In this session, discover how to turn awareness into action and help all employees develop the habits of allyship.
Build Inclusive TeamsDiverse teams are proven to be more successful, but without cultivating inclusion, diversity isn’t enough. Learn how to build a team that actively includes from leading researchers and practitioners.
Find Focus in Crisis2020 has shown us all that crises can, and will, happen. It can be tempting to focus on just “getting through” the crisis, but this session will address how to thrive through it.
The Foundations of Growth MindsetLeading researchers will share the foundational science of growth mindset, along with the strategies for creating an organization that uses and benefits from growth mindset.
Performance Management: The New RealityThe weekly updates, the monthly check-ins, the annual reviews—they’re all a thing of the past in our new, virtualized world. Today’s landscape for PM demands a much more brain-friendly, human-centric approach that meets people where they already are.
Mitigate Bias in your OrganizationWe’d all like to think that our decisions at work are thoughtful and intentional, but biases get in the way. Discover the strategies that can help you and your team mitigate the biases that impact our decisions and behaviors.
Develop Tomorrow’s LeadersLeaders have experienced unprecedented disruption through 2020. As workplaces attempt to adjust to the new normal, leaders have been expected to balance enormous tensions for themselves, their employees and their organization. This transformation has provided us with a unique opportunity to revisit the needs of the modern-day leader. When we dig into the science behind leadership, we uncover three radical yet simple changes that can better equip our leaders to thrive in this new normal and in the future.
Strategically Impact Diversity, Equity, and InclusionD&I transformations have never been more popular—or necessary. But how do you know your important actions are having the intended effect? Learn from D&I practitioners who have found tremendous success in overhauling their D&I efforts and start adopting strategies of your own today.
Leadership Principles Case StudiesLeadership principles are values that guide an organizational culture. Hear how the experts built impactful leadership principles.
Impact, Scale, Speed: Challenging ConventionsAt the end of any learning program, you’ll want to know three things: how deeply the learning was embedded, among how many people, and how quickly. In other words, you want to capture the impact, scale, and speed. In this session, discover how to strike the right balance in your learning modalities to optimize all three.
Diversity & Inclusion Case StudiesIt’s a must to get diversity and inclusion right. Hear from practitioners who have developed, managed, and sustained successful D&I initiatives.
Performance Management Case StudiesOrganizations are experiencing a lot of change right now, and their performance management strategies need to evolve in parallel. Join a panel of leaders to hear how they’ve managed their performance management in these times.
Crisis Management Case StudiesNo two crises are identical, and neither are the crisis management strategies that follow. Experts in this session will discuss what did and didn’t work as they moved through 2020.
