Global disorder has significantly increased while some of our comparative advantage has begun to erode. CEOs and leaders face similar challenges, and like the U.S. do not often have the luxury to focus on one problem at a time. Throughout his tenure, General Dempsey made leadership development a priority and focused on capturing innovation and efficiencies to build creative, adaptive professionals skilled at leading organizational change while operating in complexity. He firmly believes in the imperative nature of developing leaders of competence, character and consequence in order to address the challenges of the 21st Century. During this presentation, he examines strategies to foster innovation, explores a balance of certain attributes, places an emphasis on relationships and dives into efficient and focused processes that will help any organization accomplish their strategic objectives.

SEMINAR OVERVIEW

Leaders today face challenges that have always existed but also challenges that are new, dynamic, complex, and cannot be ignored. This seminar will systematically examine today’s leadership environment to determine what’s new and what’s not. The instructors will share experiences from the highest levels of government and business to illuminate these challenges and to propose leadership principles for addressing them. In addition, the seminar will provide participants with opportunities to practice the application of these principles through customizable exercises and group experiences. Participants will walk away not only with a stronger understanding of the current and future environment, but with the practical skills necessary for grappling with the implications of leading in our rapidly evolving world.

The environment in which we now lead. In the first part of this session we will discuss changes in the leadership environment. We will discuss the distinction between complex and complicated, the accessibility and speed of information, the vulnerability of facts, the influence of digital echoes on both leaders and followers and the competition for trust and confidence in which leaders now find themselves. 

The enduring leadership principles. In the second part of this session, drawing on examples from both the instructors’ experiences and current events, we will draw out three enduring and important leadership principles: Give Them Memories (Belonging), Make it Matter (Meaning), and Learn to Imagine (Learning from Weak Signals).

The emerging leadership principles. Once again drawing upon both experience and current events, we will draw out three emerging and increasingly important leadership principles: Develop a Bias for Action, Empower Subordinates to Co-Create Context, Understand How to Relinquish Control to Preserve Power. We will discuss how these principles must be supported by certain leadership instincts including Listen, Amplify, and Include. We will conclude this session with a discussion of the concept of Radical Inclusion and why it is the necessary pragmatic leadership response to change, complexity, speed, accessibility, and affordability.

Today a company’s success depends on mindset, its use of exponential technologies and the power of crowdsourcing. This keynote, based on Diamandis’ best-selling book BOLD, examines the approaches required to succeed during this exponential age.

Where should a company be looking to grow 10x bigger, rather than 10-percent bigger? What does it take for a company to become an exponential organization? How do you become Uber rather than Kodak?

Diamandis explains how a massively transformative purpose can drive your organization’s culture and help you attract the best employees. He examines the innovation principles used by GoogleX’, and the power of bold, “moonshot” thinking. He details how entrepreneurial billionaires like Larry Page, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson think—and what strategies they use to scale and disrupt.

Diamandis adds personal stories from his own moonshot companies: XPRIZE, which solves the world’s grand challenges through incentive competitions; Human Longevity Inc., which is transforming the healthcare industry and solving aging-related diseases; and Planetary Resources, which is making once-scarce resources abundant.

This keynote will help you:

  • Create a culture of innovation and moonshot thinking within your organization;
  • Identify areas in your company where you are going 10% bigger, rather than 10X;
  • Understand the key attributes of an exponential organization and evaluate the most important changes required to accelerate your growth;
  • Transform your organization’s mindset from “linear to exponential” and from “scarcity-minded to abundance focused”;
  • Craft a massively transformative purpose (MTP) to drive culture, inspire innovation and attract the best employees

In Annie Duke’s 20 years playing poker, she noticed that most players quickly plateau in their learning despite an abundance of evidence about how they can improve. Players win or lose hands many times an hour and get feedback about the quality of their play almost immediately. Outcomes are closely tied in time to decisions. Poker provides a closed, tight feedback loop so it should provide an ideal environment for years of learning and improvement. Players also have the opportunity to watch others win or lose hands even more often than they play hands themselves. Yet most poker players repeat the same mistakes. Players have trouble incorporating both positive and negative feedback. When things go well, they give maximum credit to their skill. When things don’t go well, they blame luck. Wins, therefore, teach them to do exactly what they are already doing. They ignore losses, attributing them to factors outside their control. Of course, this occurs in every facet of our lives. Annie examines this process with examples from poker, familiar personal and business decisions, and behavioral science research. She shares comprehensive strategies to mitigate these biases, embracing the feedback that our outcomes provide to become better long-term learners. These strategies can be adopted by individuals or at an organizational level.
