Hey Managers: It’s OK Not To Be Liked

by Sebastian Bailey Managers have one of the most difficult yet important roles in company life: deliver the company strategy through their people.

Can You Catch Rudeness Like A Cold?

By Sebastian Bailey, Author of "Mind Gym: Achieve More by Thinking Differently”, CEO and Co-Founder The Mind Gym

Research has shown that when managers feel they are being treated unfairly they pass this mistreatment onto their own employees. Everyday micro-aggressions – seemingly small, often unconscious behaviors that make others feel excluded – are on the rise as organizations become more diverse and individuals react to those who are different to them.

Past Presentations

In a customer centric culture, we need to be agile and define ways that we can meet the business needs by preparing our people to develop curricula and delivery in an agile way. Catherine Curtis, Senior Manager of Instructional Design at Amazon, shares templates for streamlining processes, how to adapt processes to enable accelerated learning goals, and how to build quality learning programs and engage exclusive stakeholders.

Drive Business Success By Building a Team of Leaders

Personal motivation and a strong connection to team goals are key indicators of whether a company will compete and win in ever-changing markets. The most successful companies support teams that seek diversity, practice inclusive behaviors and are open to new ideas. Research shows when people feel included at work their engagement and performance improves, resulting in more creative solutions that appeal to a broader audience.

Shawna Erdman, Director of Global Leadership & Learning at Intel Corporation, shares the latest neuroscience research critical for developing agile organizations. She additionally shares how to incorporate diversity and inclusion as a cultural design principle (rather than a standalone program) and how to invest in development opportunities for executives and high potentials to create a top down mindset of innovation and inclusion.
