Richard Haass (Exclusively WSB)

International business leaders today face more complex risks and opportunities than ever before. They must navigate not only traditional business issues but also political ones, ranging from corporate social responsibility and climate change to political instability and backlashes against globalization. Haass, president of the country’s most influential foreign policy organization and author of numerous books, including an acclaimed book on management, analyzes the environment in which today’s business leaders operate, one that is increasingly transparent, demanding, and crowded with a wide array of players. He draws on his experience at the top levels of government and working with business to offer lessons on how business can both meet challenges and seize opportunities in a global world.

In a world filled with new, ultra-low cost competitors, ever more powerful customers and hyper-competitive markets, innovation is the only way to out-perform the industry average. Based on twenty years of ground-breaking research, and a score of high-profile assignments in some of the world’s most respected companies, Hamel can show you and your colleagues how to:

  • Unlock the innovation potential of every employee,
  • Build a portfolio of high-impact, game-changing strategies,
  • Dramatically multiply the returns on innovation investment,
  • Build management systems that keep everyone focused on innovation, and
  • Manage the day-to-day tension between innovation and operational efficiency.

This critical knowledge can help your organization unleash its full innovation potential.

As the pace of change accelerates, so must the pace of strategic renewal in every organization. All too often deep change is crisis-driven and episodic; too seldom is it opportunity-driven and continuous. Drawing on his pioneering work on strategic “resilience,” Hamel’s can help your company to:

  • Recognize the warning signs of “strategy decay,”
  • Overcome the arrogance and denial that so often frustrates strategic renewal,
  • Build a future-oriented vision that is powerful enough to overcome the gravitational pull of the past,
  • Accelerate the shift of resources from legacy programs to future-oriented initiatives, and
  • Weave the principles of resilience into every management process and practice.

If the goal is a company that can change as fast as change itself, these are essential insights.

Over the past 100 years, the most profound and enduring shifts in competitive position have come from management innovation—dramatic breakthroughs in how companies are managed, led and structured. Based on his most recent research, Hamel has developed a methodology that can help your company build the ultimate competitive advantage—an ability to proactively reinvent its management DNA. Specifically, Hamel can show your company how to:

  • Anticipate the “over-the-horizon” management challenges that will determine success in the years ahead
  • Successfully challenge the outmoded management orthodoxies that limit success,
  • Uncover the new management principles that will determine industry leadership in the future,
  • Build a capability for ongoing management innovation across your company.

In short, Hamel can show your organization how to build tomorrow’s best practices today.

Success, especially in today’s fast-changing business environment, depends on our ability to make "creativity and innovation" a continuous process. Leaders want to know how their teams can rise above any challenge and succeed no matter what comes their way. Whether it’s to embrace change, overcome obstacles, sustain growth, or take your success to the next level, they want to “Embrace the Shake.”

The term “Embrace the Shake” is coined from Artist Phil Hansen’s personal story of transformation. After developing a career-ending tremor in his drawing hand, Phil embraced his “shake” both physically and metaphorically by redefining his limitation as an impetus for creativity. Phil not only restored his artistic abilities, he became a much more creative and innovative artist than ever before. Upon sharing his message on the TED stage and millions subsequently after, “Embrace the Shake” has become a motto for many businesses to approach their limitations in a new way.

Phil’s powerful message of finding creativity within limitations will inspire you to stop looking on the outside, and start looking inside yourself for resources that can transform your challenges into opportunities for success. And like Phil’s art, “Embrace the shake” isn’t just a talk, it’s an experience! Through jaw-dropping visuals and LIVE interactive art, get ready to break preconceived assumptions, activate your creative capacity, and bring fresh ways of viewing the task at hand that will culminate with success.

Are you ready to Embrace your Shake?

Your participants will be able to:

  • Identify preconceived assumptions that cause us to believe obstacles have the power to limit success.
  • Break down resistance to limitations by recognizing their role in driving - versus stifling - creativity.
  • Explore ways to view problems with a fresh perspective by activating internal resources, the most important being creativity.

In today’s business climate every business, institution and household faces the same problem: Whom should I trust and how do I get people to trust me? In the age of Bernie Madoff and the derivatives debacle, it seems like everyone on Wall Street is suspect. Meanwhile, good businesses cannot get loans—thanks to the credit crunch—while a culture of cynicism is fed by gotcha journalists and quick-hit bloggers. This should, can and will end. Quentin Hardy has reported on Japanese financial collapses, the dotcom bubble and today’s financial woes. He shares:

  • His perspective on the technological roots of the problem
  • Insights on the universal practices of trust that must be re-invented
  • How to build better management and business structures that avoid historical repetition

The communications revolution has not just sped up our lives; it has changed the way we think about politics, companies and even national power. If you are under the impression that this type of revolution is a new experience for humanity, think again. Comparisons with the distant past are important as we try to make sense of the ever-evolving role of technology in our lives and use communication tools and resources from Twitter, Facebook and Skype. Quentin Hardy shares:

  • A comparative look at today’s revolution with those of our past
  • His take on what is happening today, drawn from his university lectures to late-night conversations with CEOs
  • He readies audiences for the coming “Concierge World” where custom business relationships, consumer goods and entertainment dominate

Management guru Peter Drucker called the creation of the computer “the birth of a new basic civilization” in which managers would take on entirely new roles and work would be organized in unforeseen ways. His predictions are coming true as the organization and management of companies such as Google, Cisco and Yahoo! retool their structures aimed at achieving a new level of efficacy. After covering all the major technology players in globally and Silicon Valley, Quentin Hardy provides insights on:

  • What efforts have worked and what has been a dead end
  • Pointers on how communications technologies are used to market internally and externally, winning loyalty and inspiring people
  • A look ahead to what management approaches to expect next from the technology leaders

Most organizations know the metrics used to judge the success of their sales force. What they don’t know is the missing piece—it’s what their sales force DOES. What actions or behaviors generated sales and which, if any, can be repeated to generate the same success? Steve Harvill and his company, Creative Ventures, conducted a 2-year study into 7 different industries interviewing their top producers to discover the patterns of behaviors that led to their success. This speech, based on the book 21 Secrets of Million Dollar Sellers: America's Top Producers Reveal the Keys to Sales Success, offers 21 specific sales activities shared between industries, which can be repeated by anyone. This multimedia, interactive program introduces this research to create a simple and dynamic sales process you can apply today!
