This presentation takes your audience on a deep dive into the role of “Melody” within music and its power as the central message to bring life to your products and services. When leaders “sing” a better future, inspiration resonates across the entire company’s culture.

Have you ever heard a great-sounding band or orchestra where everyone is a soloist? It doesn’t exist. For over a decade, the Gallup polls reveal that four out of five employees are disengaged in their work, costing the U.S. economy over $500 billion annually in lost revenue.

The Keynote Maestro shares personal stories of how minorities and women have opened doors to his ongoing success from being hired by Brazilian producer Sergio Mendes at age 23 to being the only white guy in the all black band named "Earth, Wind and Fire.” In addition to his collaborations with Dr. Martin Luther King’s daughter, Yolanda King as guest author in Open My Eyes, Open My Soul alongside Stevie Wonder, Muhammad Ali, Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Maya Angelou, he’s played the GRAMMY’s with Prince, recorded with Madonna for her major motion picture debut, Evita and toured the world to packed stadiums with Latin rock legend Carlos Santana.

Freddie Ravel drives home the message that when we embrace teamwork and inclusion, our collective Melodies, Harmonies and Rhythms achieve the ultimate SCORE—a world where human potential is raised and diversity drives organizations to gain the distinct advantage needed in today's hyper-competitive marketplace.

Illuminating the properties of Human Harmonics to resolve conflict and create breakthroughs, this program will help your team learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative success.

What does it take to make your mark? Even if you don’t aspire to fame or fortune, most of us have some urge to create, some desire to make a difference, or at least some hope that when all is said and done, we will have made some unique contribution to the world that says we were here. So why do so few of us realize our creative potential? For some, there is no shortage of good ideas—but for some reason they never make it out of our heads. Others have plenty of motivation to make things happen—but they are never sure how or where to begin. It takes originality to close those gaps. Originality is the ability to find great ideas for improving the world around you and putting them into action. And in a helpful ironic twist, originality is much more common—and much more accessible—than we think. This talk shares the science of originality and the practical steps that individuals can take to bring their ideas to life and that leaders can use to build cultures of productive creativity.

Call it the paradox of the connected workforce: If it is easier than ever to connect with our colleagues, customers and collaborators, then why do we still find it so challenging to actually work together and get things done? Many of us spend the majority of our working hours in meetings, on the phone or responding to emails, yet if we crunch the numbers, we often have little return to show for that substantial time investment. That’s because collaboration is inefficient and culture is hard to get right. Data shows that in many organizations, the most helpful employees are suffering from collaborative overload, and so-called “star performers” often do little to help their colleagues. At the same time, despite leadership’s best efforts to be mission-driven and values-focused, developing a strong workplace culture is still more of a mystery than an established practice supported by analysis and insights. “Collaboration” and “culture” are big buzzwords for a reason—when done right, they can make work more productive and more meaningful. This talk shows how researchers and industry leaders are turning to data and analytics for insights about how organizations and communities can work together better.

In today’s competitive world, we are on a constant quest to get ahead. As individuals, we keep an eye out for any edge that will help us land a coveted job or promotion. As organizations, we can be so protective of our trade secrets and competitive advantages that we sometimes hide them even from our own employees. But what if the things that drive success are not those that set us apart, but those that bring us together? A growing body of research shows that how we interact with others, whether colleagues and clients or family and friends, has a huge impact on what we are able to achieve. And to borrow from John F. Kennedy, the key is not in what others can do for us, but in what we can do for them. This talk shows that our instincts for self-preservation are (mostly) misplaced and explains why givers rise to the top in many workplaces and industries. But it also cautions that the road to doing good and doing well is not always smooth, as sometimes our desire to help can backfire. To become sustainably and productively generous, individuals need to learn how to become more helpful and organizations need to create cultures and systems to support meaningful collaboration.

Ann Rhoades (Exclusively WSB)

Most leaders know that a winning, engaged culture is the key to attracting top talent and customers. Yet, it remains elusive how exactly to create this ideal workplace – one where everyone from the front lines to the boardroom knows the company’s values and feels comfortable and empowered to act on them. Ann describes a proven system for creating values and socially responsible cultures.

Based on Ann’s years of experience with JetBlue, Southwest Airlines and other companies known for their trailblazing corporate cultures, Ann reveals how leaders can create winning environments and provides a clear blueprint of how to accomplish culture change.

Deliverables are:

  • A system for building sustainable engaged cultures based on Values unique to your environment
  • Selecting and retaining "A" players who mirror your values
  • Delivering extraordinary customer-centric service levels
  • Moving from just being a good organization to being a great community and values focused one
  • Improve performance at all levels.

Appreciation is one of the most powerful yet overlooked aspects of successfully motivating and empowering people and teams. According to the latest research in the fields of positive psychology and strengths-based leadership, when individuals and teams put more attention on what is working, instead of focusing on problems and perceived weaknesses, they thrive. Through this program, which is based on the key principles of his book Focus on the Good Stuff, Mike Robbins illustrates exactly how appreciation impacts productivity, morale and success.

This program:

  • Explains the important distinction between recognition and appreciation
  • Enhances teamwork and connection
  • Encourages a positive team culture that focuses on the good stuff – not on gossip, complaints, or negativity
  • Helps people effectively deal with adversity and stay positive in the midst of change and challenges
  • Provides tools and techniques for authentic empowerment

Sir Ken Robinson (Exclusively WSB)

The changing fortunes of the Fortune 500 will tell you that no company has a guaranteed place at the top. Keeping up and staying ahead of the game depends entirely on continuous and sustained innovation. We all know that’s true, but what do company leaders have to do to make it happen? Sir Ken Robinson has worked with some of the world’s leading creative organizations—in the corporate, educational and cultural fields. In this presentation, he identifies the three myths about innovation that hold many organizations back, and the basic practices that drive the most innovative organizations ahead of the pack. He presents a three-tier strategy to generate “systemic innovation” across the whole organization. He then identifies the three core roles of creative leaders to make this happen. Takeaways include:

  • The need for “systemic innovation”
  • The relationships between imagination, creativity and innovation
  • The three levels of systemic innovation
  • The basic roles of creative leaders
