Erik Wahl - UNThink: Rediscover Your Creative Genius
April 9, 2014, 7pm BST (2pm EDT)
Somehow we’ve come to believe that creativity is reserved for the chosen few- the poets, the painters, the writers. The truth is bigger and better than that. Creativity is in all of us. We simply need to rediscover the keys that will unlock our potential. UNthink is the experience that will push members of your organization beyond their traditional thought patterns and habitual levels of performance. UNthink will inspire audiences to realize they are capable of so much more than they have been led to believe.
The UNthink program helps reframe your organization’s thinking so that new creative actions become possible. Learning how to UNthink will inject your daily grind with new passion, allowing employees to see how the organization wants and needs all of their talents and energies, not just the ones they’ve been using so far. You’ll begin the process of rethinking your life as a blank canvas of limitless opportunity on which to create your masterpiece.
Robert Sutton - Scaling Excellence: The Role of the Leader
May 13, 2014, 5pm BST (Noon EST)
Robert Sutton spent six years working to uncover how the best leaders and organizations spread excellence: from people and places that have it, to those that don’t. Sutton shows how the fate of every organization depends on building or finding pockets of exemplary performance, and—more importantly—how to spread those splendid deeds from the few to the many. Scaling well requires more than just creating a big footprint in a small amount of time.
He shares principles that can be applied to organizations of every size and stripe: including large and small non-profits, government agencies, schools, universities, and hospitals. Sutton closes by emphasizing that successful scaling requires relentless attention: a concentrated effort throughout the entire organization. There is no quick and easy way to do it well. Indeed, the most successful leaders are so persistent that they seem to take the path of most—rather than least—resistance as they spread excellence from the few to the many.

The key to success in life and business is to master Conversational Intelligence. It’s not about how smart you are, but how open you are to learn new, effective, and powerful conversational rituals that prime the brain for trust, partnership, and mutual success.
In a high-energy session, Judith Glaser presents a new framework for knowing just what conversations trigger the lower brain and what activates the higher-level intelligences—empathy, foresight, good judgment and trust. Through story-telling and practical exercises, Glaser translates the most ground-breaking research from the field of neuroscience into insightful, pragmatic and powerful tools and wisdom for elevating organizational success.
