Chuck Hagel (Exclusively WSB)

In this moderated discussion, Chuck Hagel addresses a wide variety of domestic and global issues providing an in-depth, 360-degree look at the world today, bringing the audience into the conversation.  Topic areas include:

  • The Future of America
  • Defense Strategies and the 21st Century Military
  • Global Politics and U.S. Foreign Policy
  • Global Markets and the Role of Developing Countries and Emerging Markets
  • U.S. Fiscal Policy
  • National Security
  • Leadership in Uncertain Times
  • The Fate of Democracy Without Bipartisan Consensus

Leaders, managers, colleagues and direct reports face difficult conversations every day, and as leaders become more senior, they spend more and more of their time tackling difficult conversations. These difficult conversations—conflicts between functions or geographies with key alliance partners or your biggest clients—are the complex messes that get kicked upstairs because no one below has clear answers. Handling these conversations efficiently is no longer just a good idea, it’s integral to the success of each leader, their division and ultimately, the entire organization. Failure comes at a high cost—conflicts that fester and consume energy, sap creativity and destroy teamwork.

Based on 20 years of work at the Harvard Negotiation Project, this session provides a framework for understanding why some of our most important conversations are so hard, examines the common mistakes we all make, and offers a step-by-step method for handling them with less anxiety and better results. Tailored to the day-to-day challenges leaders face, this session offers insight and strategies for looking beneath the surface to understand disagreement, increase accountability, and manage your own reactions when under stress.

Gary Heil (Exclusively WSB)

For more than half a century, leaders have been engaged in the study of the best ways to integrate individual and organizational actions. Yet, despite the energy spent on the issue, too few organizations have integrated the best knowledge into day-to-day activities. Oftentimes the best improvement ideas are not new, but are found in the effective implementation of timeless ideas. Heil will help your organization to:

  • Understand what demotivates people
  • Recognize the predictors of resistance to change 
  • Identify an organization’s DNA, implement ways to measure “culture” and learn why culture is critical to understand
  • Create a shared sense of purpose that is important to the survival of the organization
  • Uncover learning skills, understand why they atrophy and learn what leaders can do about it

Gary Heil (Exclusively WSB)

Whether in the boardroom, on the shop floor or on the baseball diamond, the best leaders and coaches are remarkably similar. They are passionate, skilled, caring, tough and empathetic winners who attract the best people to play on their teams and demand that all members make maximum contributions. The best leaders and coaches are teachers at heart. From this presentation, you will learn:

  • How to define the game before you play, a task that is not as simple as it seems
  • Why teams cannot afford non-leaders
  • Why effective recruiting is more important than ever and how to improve the process
  • What the role of values is in team development and why it must be understood and lived by all

Gary Heil (Exclusively WSB)

Gary Heil inspires audiences with his passion for change, speaking about tested strategies for optimistic leadership toward a shared and attainable future. Offering practical, takeaway counsel on removing roadblocks, he shares proven guidelines for creating a different tomorrow that will lead to a win-win outcome for all team members while accelerating organizational change, such as:

  • How optimistic leaders who are passionate about creating change foster a sense of hope and cultivate a contagious attitude of success
  • Which reward structures enhance accountability and performance
  • Why it is vital to communicate compelling reasons for change and why leaders must advance reasons that are both significant and achievable
  • How effective leaders can lessen resistance, accelerate team responsibility for change and obtain an outcome that will be worth the effort

Alexis Herman (Exclusively WSB)

We are living and working in a new economy - powered by technology, fueled by information, and driven by knowledge. Increased global competition will continue to affect the type of work being done in American workplaces, creating new high-skilled jobs and lessening demand for low skilled work. More and more today, the virtual office never closes. So what will the workplace and workforce look like 20 years from now? How will hard-hit sectors impacted by the recent recession boost job creation in their efforts to reenergize the American and global economic engine? In her insightful presentation, Herman will answer these questions and explore the three biggest challenges that employers must address to stay competitive and productive.

Arianna Huffington (Exclusively WSB)

Can you achieve true success through a relentless race to the top at the exclusion of all else? Arianna Huffington—president and editor-in-chief, Huffington Post Media Group—makes a compelling case for a different approach. By redefining success beyond money and power, she urges audiences to consider a third metric in measuring success—one which is “based on well-being, health, our ability to unplug and recharge and renew ourselves, and to find joy in both our job and the rest of our life.” Mounting evidence, both scientific and anecdotal, confirms that the practices that make us less stressed also make us more productive, and Huffington provides clear examples of how this is not only good for families' and employees’ health, but also good for a company’s bottom line. Even though the current male-dominated model of success isn’t working for either gender, Huffington acknowledges that women must lead the charge in changing the current ethos. Eloquent and engaging, Huffington shares how ‘leaning back’ makes for wiser leaders and how ultimately, success is not just about money or position, but about living the life you want—not just the life for which you settle.
