Inside Out: Social Brains in a Digital World

The future may be digitizing our lives, but humans will always have social brains.

Accordingly, navigating the digital age requires us to understand how our core human assets — our capacity, our motivations, our biases — are refracted through our many digital screens.

Whether it’s how we deploy our attention, navigate distributed teams, or create value for customers, human behavior is the core of technological innovation. That is, thriving in the digital world requires not just keeping up with the newest software, but also tuning into the nuances and needs of the social brain.

Be part of the conversation as we aim to innovate our way through the digital world by understanding just three core human principles.

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?

Promises & Perils of Power

Power isn’t just something leaders wield over others. In fact, science shows that power has power over leaders.

In Promises and Perils of Power, we will dive into the many ways that power filters the way people think, feel, and behave. Power frames almost everything leaders need to do to succeed, from pursuing goals to guiding people to assessing risk. These are often unconscious processes, but science can help us become aware of them.

It’s important to understand that power’s promises and perils exist for everyone. To create the future we want, we need to not only care about who gets power, but also equip them to wield it wisely.

Join groundbreaking researchers in the field, including Columbia’s Adam Galinsky and NYU Stern’s Batia Wiesenfeld, who will detail the cognitive mechanics of power as they relate to organizational dilemmas.

Create a Growth Mindset Culture

A growth mindset is the belief that we can get better, that we can continually improve in any specific domain.

Research shows a growth mindset enhances resilience, creativity, and individual performance. Spurred on by these findings, many organizations are taking on the challenge of developing this mindset across their people.

This session explores the big questions about how to develop a growth mindset at an organizational level. Is it something that can be fostered in every employee? How much effort does this take? Which talent processes need to be evolved to encourage a growth mindset? Which processes have the biggest impact?

The research shared will help us understand the deeper practices of encouraging every employee to continuously grow.

Future Think

The 1937 Hindenburg disaster. The 2008 financial crisis. The 2018 Super Bowl.

Engineers, financial experts, statistical analysts, and many other intelligent people routinely fail to make predictions that become reality. Not because the human brain is ill-equipped to deal with vastly complex information, but because we don’t always recognize when we’re working with an incomplete picture.

Making matters worse, the speed and scope of technological development has put enormous amounts of information at our disposal, creating even more noise in decision-making.

But science can equip us to make smarter choices with imperfect information, act more rationally, and navigate what we don’t know.

We’re starting this year’s Summit precisely from that opportunity. Join noted futurist Bob Johansen and neuroscientist Kevin Ochsner to discuss the best tools for thinking about the future and how organizations can thrive in a rapidly changing landscape.

Unconference

The brain’s capability for sustaining attention is limited, especially as we inch closer to the weekend. With this in mind, the final Summit session is an opportunity for self-driven, social learning—for your brain to make the connections it wants to make, how it wants to make them. Following a full two days of formal presentations, The Unconference offers 90 minutes for you to get up and personally meet the scientists, learn from your peers, share your own expertise, debate equivocal ideas, and play a variety of insight-based brain games. Enjoy the connections.

Design for Insight

The pressure to adapt is astounding. New jobs, technologies, organizational structures. The future continues to scream “more! more! more!” to the present. To make people more adaptive we need to design learning events that truly change behaviors. In this session, we uncover the link between lasting behavior change and the moment of insight.. It turns out that insight doesn’t just change the brain, it can change whole organizations too. No longer a mystery, science shows us how to design every type of learning event to significantly increase the likelihood and strength of insight, from the one off video to complex learning pathways over years. Join us in a conversation to learn how to better shape the experiences that shape people and organizations.
