Organizations—whether a corporation, salesforce or association of any size—perform at their best when people feel safe and confident about their ability to navigate troubled times. In Navy terms, combat readiness is a matter of life and death—every crewmember’s contribution matters. Mike Abrashoff tells the inspiring story of how the USS Benfold was transformed into the best ship in the Navy by empowering the crew to take ownership and improve every aspect of the way things were done. As Abrashoff shares the methods he used to create successful change within the confines of strict military regulations, audiences come away with dozens of practical and actionable ideas to make a difference in their own team. This first-hand account of the journey to organizational excellence is as invaluable as it will be memorable.

For organization’s who want a deeper understanding of grassroots leadership and want to take those principles to the next level, Mike Abrashoff addresses the challenges most on the minds of leaders in these challenging times. Collaboration, commitment, cohesion, accountability, engagement, rapid and continual innovation, engaging employees and dealing with generational differences in that workforce—these crucial issues are the ones that that successful leaders need to master. It's Our Ship is about creating a high performance culture where everyone takes ownership and responsibility using real lessons from the business world and focus on innovation, accountability and engagement.

Most companies and schools follow this formula: if you work harder, you will be more successful, and then you will be happy. This formula is scientifically backward. A decade of research shows that training your brain to be positive at work first actually fuels greater success second. In fact, 75% of our job success is predicted not by intelligence, but by your optimism, social support network and the ability to manage energy and stress in a positive way. By researching top performers at Harvard, the world’s largest banks, and Fortune 500 companies, Shawn discovered patterns which create a happiness advantage for positive outliers—the highest performers at the company. Based on his new book, The Happiness Advantage, Shawn explains what positive psychology is, how much we can change, and practical applications for reaping the Happiness Advantage in the midst of change and challenge.

What is more important than IQ and emotional intelligence combined? Based on the research in Before Happiness, Shawn Achor takes us to the beginning of human potential to explain why some people are able to make great changes while others remain the same. Before you can make a change at work or home, your brain first constructs a picture of reality; this mental picture already determines your likelihood of success and your ability to harness your brain’s IQ, emotional and social intelligence. In this exciting talk, Shawn takes the audience to the cutting edge of positive psychology and neuroscience to clearly demonstrate how one can become a “positive genius”: one who can continually architect successful, positive realities based upon true facts then transfer those realities to others. Using his signature humor, new case studies and interactive experiments that engage the audience, Shawn makes this research come alive. Shawn illuminates new research he did in collaboration with Yale published in the top psychology journal this year showing step by step how a leader can change their mindset about stress to increase productivity by 30% and lower health problems and fatigue by 23%. Audiences leave with five clear, practical takeaways, which can immediately start to transform their life, raising both happiness and success rates. In this program, participants will learn how to navigate multiple realities at work, cancel internal and external noise, add vantage points to planning, use success accelerants to speed goal completion and use meaning markers to spread positive genius throughout a team, family and an entire organization.

In this session, your group will learn how fighter pilots achieve their missions in both training and combat. This keynote includes both a main speaker and a wingman fighter pilot and is highly customized to meet the needs of your audience.

This keynote covers four steps to Flawless Execution:

  1. Plan: Learn how fighter pilots plan for a mission using the Six Steps to Mission Planning.
  2. Brief: Communicate the plan to maximize the quality of frontline execution.
  3. Execute: Discover how fighter pilots ensure flawless execution in their missions by eliminating performance-draining task saturation.
  4. Debrief: Implement nameless and rankless feedback sessions in your squadron to guarantee maximum learning.

A half-day interactive training program that exposes your team to the Flawless ExecutionSM Cycle through an exciting experiential learning format. The Flawless ExecutionSM Cycle is a simple, scalable and endlessly repeatable process that helps individuals, teams and organizations rapidly adapt to change and improve execution and learning. Participants will utilize their learning in a simulation where each member is assigned a unique role requiring their involvement in order to create a common challenge for their entire team to debrief against. Consequently, the scenario develops teamwork and coordination. At the end of the day, participants will be equipped with tools they can immediately apply in their teams. This is the only team building program on the market that can accommodate groups of 30 to 2000.

We live in a society that is quick to point out the limitations individuals possess. But what if limits did not define an individual? What if there was a way to push beyond limitations. Justin and Patrick teach and share how they have defied perceived limitations and achieved what many said was impossible.

José Andrés (Exclusively WSB)

Described by The Wall Street Journal as “a force of nature, the Energizer Bunny, the Tasmanian devil, and Luke Skywalker,” José Andrés is not your typical “chef” by any stretch of the imagination. As a man with 13 restaurants; numerous prestigious accolades, including the James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef in America, the highest honor in the U.S. restaurant industry; owner of ThinkFoodGroup, a company with 800 employees and an annual revenue of $75 million; a sought-after TV icon; a political activist; and a professor at Harvard, Andrés’s secret to success is evident in his being so passionate about creativity and innovation that he has no problem rolling up his sleeves and doing the heavy lifting himself. In a presentation chock-full of edge-of-your-seat anecdotes, Andrés proves that a culture of innovation and creativity not only leads to personal success, but also a better tomorrow for all.

83% of U.S. teenagers feel more stressed out than do adults, and school is by far the main cause of their stress.

46 % of all new teachers in the United States leave the profession within five years.

According to the World Economic Forum, as we march toward the fourth industrial revolution, our young people are not prepared. By the time they graduate from high school, as many as two-thirds of children entering primary school today will not have the skills required to get a job. The impact will be worse for women, who already have less than two-thirds of the economic opportunity that men have.

We cannot sit by any longer and watch the future of our country’s greatest asset – young people – have their wings clipped even before they soar. Empowered Education is the clarion call for everyone concerned about this country’s economic stability to rise up and transform the system from the inside out. The revolution is real, because the future is here.

Every educator must possess the mindset to change themselves first and then change the system they are in. anticipate the future economic drivers of the community, and radically overhaul their approach in engaging teachers, parents, students, and the community at large in a new way. This will require all stakeholders in education to lead differently in the midst of uncertainty by:

  • ? Creating a culture where everyone thrives;
  • ? Building professional presence of educators in the school and developing their collaboration skills; and
  • ? Shifting from teacher-centric to student-centered.

Welcome to the New Normal where there are never enough hours in the day to do everything you want to do. This is a time in history when professionals take their timid feet off the brakes of life, career, and business, and accelerate into the future. I have good news for you.

The good old days may be behind us, but there are magnificent days just around the corner. Enough waiting around; enough biting your nails; enough tapping your feet; enough wishing and waiting for something to happen.

Consider this your nudge, your push, your invitation to show up in a big way. Now is the time to make something happen. Simon will share insights on how he reinvented himself at Disney as well as key insights that he’s learned while working with 1,500 organizations in 45 countries over the past 15 years.

Brilliant Living will teach you how to make something happen instead of playing it safe. You have a choice to make.

Be average or be brilliant. Which one are you? Will you dare to be brilliant? If so, there are eight core areas of life that one must constantly evaluate to live a brilliant life: spiritual, family, career/business, emotional, mental, wellness, social and financial. Simon T. Bailey leads this inspiring and invigorating session in which participants will learn how to:

  • ? Increase capacity to be confident in career and life;
  • ? Understand how and why mindfulness meditation can provide a breakthrough; and
  • ? Experience a simple tool to use to regularly evaluate the eight core areas of life.
