The most successful people think of their careers as jungle gyms, where the rewards come from moving in various directions and not just up. Sounds scary, but particularly in this fast-changing and unpredictable world, you should not think of your career as just climbing a ladder. More than ever, you need peripheral vision and the ability to think broadly. An expert on the traits needed to navigate a successful career, Pattie Sellers shows how flexibility—in both managing and being managed—is an increasingly critical trait in today’s workplaces. Success favors the highly adaptable who are ready to swing to opportunities over here and over there.

Claire Shipman (Exclusively WSB)

America is on the verge of the biggest workplace revolution since the Second World War. Women are more valuable than ever on the job, and are literally remaking the office to suit them. The most recent numbers show women now make up a majority of workers—in part due to the recession. During the recent rash of layoffs and downsizing, the 82 percent of the jobs lost in recent months have been those belonging to men. But there is also a pink lining to the current economy: around the globe, survey after survey reports that companies that employ more senior women actually make more money. Women are more inclusive, more focused on long-term results and, in many cases, better educated. But women don't want the same career track their male counterparts have carved. Women want more flexibility and are creating work lives to suit them—lives where they have time for children, elderly parents, friends, pets, marathons or just themselves. Claire Shipman provides insight as well as shares her own personal stories on how to attain the right balance between careers and personal lives.
Audience members will understand:

  • How the contributions of women are reshaping the workplace—and earning companies more money
  • How to create the right work life balance for yourself
  • What employers should be doing to keep and recruit women

Megan Smith believes that, in order to fully unleash your organization’s economic potential and competitiveness, you have to include a broader team in problem-solving. She refutes the notion that diverse voices haven’t always been part of the story, pointing to significant contributors from America’s “missing history.” Smith also explains how we can move much faster to retain and recruit inclusive teams, mitigate unconscious and institutional biases, and foster “ecosystem thinking”—bringing more people to the table, inspiring creative confidence, and solving our biggest problems.

Why does real innovation elude so many companies? Because the focus is at the macro level exclusively: assets, processes, and outputs. Instead, organizations need a more holistic focus that includes inspiring its people to unleash inspiration at the individual micro level. This workshop helps participants engage, reflect, and collaborate as the learn how to drive innovation throughout the organization -- from the inside out.

Andy Stefanovich, Author of Look at More, details his 5M discipline to innovation. A discipline that addresses the macro level innovation mood of the organization and the micro level creative mindset of the people.

Through provocative anecdotes and road tested case studies with Fortune 50 companies, Andy shares how the 5Ms can act as a diagnostic tool and road map for changing individuals, empowering teams, and transforming organizations. A discipline that goes beyond a quick burst of excitement to sustain innovation - organizationally, culturally, and personally.

Andy will:

  • Illustrate, through engaging client success stories, how expanding your company’s innovation focus to include your people helps drive bottom line growth and internal engagement;
  • Detail the 5Ms and the comprehensive organizational and how to create the organization mood for innovation and leverage the individual mindset for innovation;
  • Mood is the organization context for innovation
  • Mindset is the individual capacity for innovation
  • Mechanisms are the tools, processes, and approaches to facilitate innovation
  • Measurements are the traditional and non-traditional metrics for innovation
  • Momentum is the active championing of innovation for long term sustainability
  • Teach you how to harness inspiration by thinking differently yourself and creating an organizational culture that encourages others to do the same.

Why do we give ourselves permission to be inspired at a museum, but not at work? Because we expect it at the museum. To drive innovation and growth in business we need to give that same permission, and create that same expectation, for the people in our organizations. The permission to inspire and be inspired.

Through a unique storytelling approach, Prophet’s Andy Stefanovich creates the museum mentality - combining proven client based examples with real-world observations. Focusing on the front end of innovation -- and giving your team the permission to inspire themselves and one another with a museum mentality -- is the most effective way to positively impact innovation.

Andy will also teach them how to become a "curator and provocateur" within their organization, including techniques to inspire innovation by delight, by design, and on demand to systemically drive business innovations.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to become "curators" for innovation, editing the excellence of the world and bringing it to their organization to inspire innovation.
  • Demonstrate the three museum mentality techniques to inspire your organization by delight, by design, and on demand.

Your desk is a terrible place to get inspired. But the reality is, it’s where you spend your work day -- and where you’re expected to be your most innovative. With the right mindset, you can create your own source for inspiration - anywhere and anytime.

Using his principles of "look at more stuff and think about it harder," Andy Stefanovich will teach you how to build your inspiratory - a source, and process, for inspiring innovation. During this visually engaging presentation, Andy will detail the inspiration continuum, including direct, tangential, and abstract sources of inspiration. He will teach participants how to "look at more stuff" and the discipline of drawing insights from observations by using visual examples he has curated in the last 72 (24) hours.

In this highly engaging presentation, Stefanovich:

  • Teaches how to inspire your innovation through direct, tangential, and abstract sources of innovation
  • Illustrates, with real-life examples curated over the previous 24 hours, how to effectively drive innovation from direct, tangential, and abstract sources of inspiration
