While mindfulness, kindness, and positivity can take us far, they cannot take us all the way. Sometimes, they can even hold us back. Fortunately, there is a solution: emotional and social agility. Emotionally agile people are highly attuned to the fact that success is about using the correct emotional resources in each unique situation. Socially agile people know what part of their personality is ideal to get the best possible outcome when interacting with others.

Companies that push for positivity unwittingly create a culture in which workers don't have an outlet for the very real negative feelings that bubble up from time to time. This results in office backstabbing, water cooler gossip, disengagement, and turnover. Scientists have also discovered that instead of being a buzz-kill skeptics are crucial to vetting bold ideas that actually translate to market success.

We make a grave mistake in prematurely discarding parts of our personality that feel uncomfortable or are not socially desirable to talk about in public. Kashdan will teach you how to appreciate and harness each side of your personality and in turn, become whole. Join him for a rich, lively, and wildly entertaining dialogue. You will learn practical strategies to attain greater success, meaning in life, vitality, and healthy relationships.

What is it that underpins a person’s ability to bounce back from life’s most challenging moments? How we can we train people to be more resilient? Based on the latest science, how people respond to bad things is neither random nor the same for everyone. You will learn about the psychological and social influences on resilience. Kashdan will guide you through techniques that are essential for healthy adjustment in response to uncertainty, change, and other difficult events.

Nothing has a greater impact on quality of life than the presence of significant, meaningful relationships. Recent decades have seen a remarkable growth in research on how relationships at work can promote greater work engagement, productivity, and creativity. Kashdan will discuss several strategies for cultivating healthy relationships including net positive energizers, how pain serves as social glue, the power of curiosity when socializing, how to negotiate conflict, harnessing strengths in work teams, the Michelangelo phenomenon, the chameleon effect, and more. Kashdan will teach you how to effectively engage in tough conversations, and how to best influence and persuade other people. With this informative, entertaining, and interactive talk, set yourself up for long-term success at work and home.

Sam Kass (Exclusively WSB)

Making healthy choices is far easier said than done. As the director of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, Sam Kass garnered acclaim for his leadership at the forefront of the First Lady’s national, multifaceted initiative to encourage healthy eating and exercise for all Americans—and people are listening.

An innovative take on the modern “keynote”, Kass delights and informs audiences, taking them behind the scenes of what it was like to serve as a public face for “Let’s Move!”, and more. From replacing the “food pyramid” to reshaping food labels, Kass is able to address the significance of specific policies he not only helped to shape, but acted persistently on to enact. He is credited for advancing policies through Congress at unprecedented speed. Audiences are captivated by his candor, entertaining narratives, and unique analysis of today’s health climate and food systems. Additionally, Kass can explore the impact that sustainability, wellness and health care policies have in workplace environments; tips and tricks to setting up both home and work environments for success in endeavors towards healthy living; and incentives that organizations can establish for their employees.

Mark King (Exclusively WSB)

Many people in business today are thrown into leadership positions with very little training. Companies and workforces are more complex than ever before, merging Baby Boomers with Millennials and telecommuters with flexible work spaces. Environments and marketplaces are changing rapidly and competition is fierce. Companies cannot afford to have processes or bureaucracy blocking their path to greatness and must create a free-thinking environment to inspire people to compete. Mark shares with his audiences how to inspire a workforce of creativity and confidence to grow at a rapid pace and create things consumers won’t believe is possible. He talks about coming to work with big dreams and driving vision and energy so your people can create things the world has never seen before.

Key Ideas:

  • Understand the effect your leadership can have.
  • Pick something you can win at. Set outrageous goals.
  • Distribute leadership and encourage shared ownership of your company’s future.
  • Set out on a journey of challenging the status quo and allow success to happen.
  • People who achieve success have one thing in common: confidence.
  • Instill the belief that everyone can make a difference.

 

So you're one of those white people who says "Black Lives Matter" and supports affirmative action and understands the history of racial oppression and injustice in our nation. Now what? What do you do to feel like a constructive ally and a force for good in the world instead of just being paralyzed by guilt?  

In this deeply honest and refreshing talk, Sally talks about being white and opens a conversation for other white folks to argue about the (sometimes annoying) concept of "privilege" and what it means for their consciousness and lives. How does "white supremacy" invade our own minds and lives? How do we intentionally or unintentionally buy into the narrative of "racial difference"? And what does it mean for racism to not be our fault but still be our responsibility? For well-intentioned white folks looking for a way out of knots of guilt and regret, Sally lays out a path of action.

Takeaways include: 

  • Accessible language for talking about race and privilege
  • Permission to make mistakes — and lessons on how to make them without being extra offensive
  • Concrete action steps white people can take to be part of the solution 

Sallie Krawcheck has been on the front lines of financial services for the past two-plus decades. During that time, she has led and managed complex businesses through some of the most volatile markets in history. At the same time, she has had a front-row seat in working directly for seven financial services CEOs, at all points in their career spectra, gleaning important insights into leadership during crisis on what works and what fails. Offering sharp insight, laced with humor, Sallie Krawcheck lays out the most important lessons in leadership, and particularly in leadership under fire.

Vivek Kundra (Exclusively WSB)

With continuing reports of foreign governments hacking into businesses and governments around the world, cyber security has moved from being just an IT problem to being one of the top issues facing corporations today. As we all grapple with what these cyber threats mean for our business, personal and national security, technology visionary and Salesforce.com EVP Vivek Kundra helps audiences understand the importance of being on the offense when it comes to protecting your organization's vital interests. As a member of the Obama Administration, it was Kundra’s responsibility to lead the Federal government’s cyber security initiatives, improving response times, outcomes and the processes that hindered the cyber security management capabilities of the world’s largest purveyor of IT services. Today, Kundra helps audiences understand:

  • Current cyber threats and best-in-class counter measures
  • What the business and government community needs to do to broadly confront the cyber security issue
  • How cyber security is now an organizational problem and what both IT and organizational leaders need to do to get all stakeholders on the offense in confronting this issue
  • How collaboration lays a crucial role in ensuring security

Vivek Kundra (Exclusively WSB)

Data. Our lives are surrounded by it and it only grows as technology encompasses our lives. Whether documents, emails, social media artifacts, images, medical records, web search information or collecting information on human behavior like how people drive to work or even use their thermostats, many leaders have a hard time trying to figure out how—and what—to evaluate when using big data to determine organizational strategy, enhancing products or simply making life better for consumers. Drawing on his experiences leading efforts as the CIO of the United States and as the EVP for emerging markets for Salesforce.com, Vivek Kundra illuminates audiences on the power and opportunities that lie within big data. From how data is being used to transform transportation, education and health care to how information is being used to make smarter products, Kundra shares:

  • How to use big data: what to pay attention to and what to avoid
  • What cutting-edge ways big data is being used to increase organizational efficiency, product design, the bottom line—and people’s lives
  • How collaboration and big data are the future of technology
