Jim Larranaga (Exclusively WSB)

In the last decade, Coach Jim Larranaga has led two different programs from having no notoriety to being dominant contenders on the national scene. Most recently, Larranaga  reinvigorated the University of Miami Hurricanes program from irrelevance to being ranked number two in the country and winning their first ACC title in school history—an accomplishment that earned Larranaga both AP and Naismith Coach of the Year honors. From the premise that “underdogs can beat the big dog,” Larranaga leads his team with a clear and well-defined plan that begins with recruitment and focuses on developing young talent.

Audiences will learn how to:

  • Use an underdog status to their advantage
  • Compete without the same resources the big dogs have
  • Transform the underdog status into a winning mantra

Jim Larranaga (Exclusively WSB)

Audiences will learn:

  • How to develop a program that will elevate their organization’s performance to the highest level
  • Where to find talented employees
  • How to build a winning, dedicated staff

Jim Larranaga (Exclusively WSB)

You can’t always predict external factors, but you can control your own behavior and attitude, Larranaga tells audiences. He shares the formula that has made him George Mason University’s most successful head coach, one that helped him transform the relatively unknown team into one of sports’ greatest success stories. An educator first, Larranaga uses real-life examples from tough calls he has made on and off the courts to prepare his athletes for the game of life. Audiences will leave inspired, entertained and energized as they learn:

  • How to transform challenges into motivational opportunities
  • How individual attitudes can transform outcomes
  • How lessons learned on the court translate to other aspects of life, including professional careers and family life

In a globalized world innovation is more than finding a boy genius.  Where there is a collision of diverse individuals and leaders who know how support them, breakthrough market insight and innovations can thrive.

In this thought-provoking presentation, you will learn:

  • What we have to lose
  • An (un)level playing field
  • The diverse marketplace
  • Acquired diversity
  • How diversity drives growth and innovation

As the digital revolution marches on, the workforce of the future begins to look nothing like it has looked in the past or even in the present. What are the macro and micro forces that businesses will need to face and understand to prepare a workforce ready to meet the demands of an every changing world? How will trends around AI, immigration, migration, diversity and leadership effect business and what do we need to know and do to meet those challenges?

Audiences will gain from Lauren’s insight on:

  • The global talent pool has profoundly changed and the change is permanent
  • Most organizations are led in ways that are no longer effective
  • To lead across gender, generation and culture leaders much find ways to connect and inspire
  • How to do that may just be the most pressing leadership issue of our time

Over the course of her 35-year career, Deborah has developed insights and lessons learned: from business and policy successes
and failures. Among them: “Establish goals and priorities, but be prepared to zig zag. At least 50 percent of effective communications is listening.” And “You can and should compromise on most things, but never integrity.” Her problem solving
approach—which she outlines with personal stories from business and government—includes: investigate, communicate, activate, and follow up.

A key part of talent management in today’s business, academic and business environment is improving policies for diversity and inclusion. Why? All organizations are in a war for talent and need to recruit from the widest pool possible of qualified individuals to join their ranks. All organizations also seek innovation, which in large part stems from diversity of thought. Deborah outlines the business case for diversity and inclusion and offers examples and implementation advice from both her industry and government experience. Deborah can also offer personal experiences on how to achieve a successful work/life balance and how a woman can successfully navigate in a male dominated environment.

In a unique presentation that will change the way you do business, trend expert Phil Lempert opens the door on the future and shows where the opportunities lie for serious business growth. Lempert links growth to key trends in business and demographics, including:

  • The Aging of America: The first Baby Boomers turn 65 in 2010 - what does "boomer retirement" mean for your products, your customers and your labor force?
  • Technology at the Crossroads: Are you prepared to compete with savvy, informed customers?
  • America's Financial Report Card: What opportunities exist for your company to provide solutions to America's new financial model?
  • Micro-Advertising: How are you cutting through the clutter to compete in a digital, 24/7 downloadable and on-demand frontier? 
  • Social and Economical Responsibilities: Is your company green or about to wilt?

Rising prices and a downturn economy have created a major shift in buying habits and consumer attitudes. Now more than ever, profits depend on being a step ahead and anticipating how those shifts will affect your business. In this presentation Lempert outlines how your consumers are using lessons learned over the past 18 months to get on the road to recovery. Lempert also examines what's changed forever and what traits from before the downturn remain.

According to Pat Lencioni, teamwork remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare. He makes the point that if you could get all the people in an organization rowing in the same direction, you could dominate any industry, in any market, against any competition, at any time. Based on his runaway best-seller, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Pat uncovers the natural human tendencies that derail teams and lead to politics and confusion in so many organizations. Audience members will walk away with specific advice and practical tools for overcoming the dysfunctions and making their teams more functional and cohesive.
