Workshop Session | Thursday, June 28 | 11:55 – 12:40 p.m.
Track: Leadership Development

Work has changed, so why haven’t our leadership strategies? Today’s organizations are idea factories, constantly trying to keep up in an intensely competitive, innovative global marketplace. Gone are the days when leadership meant keeping track of clear, steady progress towards well-defined goals. We’re living in a creative economy, and leading top talent means understanding how learners are motivated. In this session we’ll explore: 1. The paradox of psychological safety; 2. The role of control; and 3. The myth of money as motivation. Attendees will learn how to ditch the habits that are holding their leaders, their teams and their organizations back, and explore new tools for leading the workforce of the future.

What will you learn?

  • Understand how leading a learning organization differs from leading a “doing” organization
  • Apply these strategies in an interactive simulation
  • Synthesize learning with current challenges in your environment
