Keynote

The Future of Leadership: From Command & Control to Trust & Inspire
Storyteller: David Kasperson, Co-Author, Trust & Inspire: How Truly Great Leaders Unleash Greatness in Others

Overview: Our world has changed, but our approach to leadership has not kept pace. Even leaders and organizations focused on inspiration tend to revert back to the “command & control” approach that seems the only option for results. Strategies systematically rely on varying forms of motivation, micromanagement and compliance to drive performance—and employees aren’t having it. People are creative, collaborative, and filled with potential, but today are over-managed and under-led. To draw out performance at the highest level, Trust & Inspire leaders bring out the best in others, and get their very best in return. They do it on purpose, as a matter of course. In this session, Wall Street Journal bestselling author, David Kasperson, will share the framework and process for unleashing greatness in others, and in ourselves.

Keynote

MIXternal Communications – your internal message is no longer internal
Storyteller: Ally Bunin, VP HR Innovation, Teammate Comms & Recognition, Advocate Health

Overview: Mixternal communications embraces the concept that internal communications are no longer internal – what’s internal is usually external (and thanks to social media, internal messages often go external before employees hear about it!). Every employee is a consumer and a community member therefore, your messaging must reach them in relevant ways they prefer. This makes channel strategy critical. Whether it’s the message, channel or tone of voice, a mixternal communications approach breeds consistency, which ultimately strengthens brand integrity and trust.
