WE NEED TO TALK: HOW TO HAVE BETTER CONVERSATIONS
featuring CELESTE HEADLEE, communication and human nature expert, award-winning journalist and best-selling author

Today most of us communicate from behind electronic screens, and studies show that Americans feel less connected and more divided than ever before. The blame for some of this disconnect can be attributed to our political landscape, but the erosion of our conversational skills as a society lies with us as individuals. Now more than ever, as we find ourselves trying to navigate in a post #MeToo workplace, it is apparent that camaraderie, communication and trust is at an all-time low. This powerful and interactive workshop will explore how we move forward TOGETHER. Led by nationally acclaimed radio host Celeste Headlee, we will learn the 10 rules needed to have better conversations. You will return home with actionable ways you can reestablish trust, improve communication and ultimately work to bridge the divides, and create places where everyone feels safe and respected.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS
ATOMIC HABITS: TINY CHANGES, REMARKABLE RESULTS
featuring JAMES CLEAR, habits expert and best-selling author

According to human potential expert James Clear, the best way to change the world (and your workplace) is in concentric circles: start with yourself and work your way out from there. If you get yourself sorted out, you’ll be in a position to contribute rather than consume and you will add order rather than disorder. Using proven scientific research and evidence-based self-improvement strategies, this session will teach you how to think about progress and success, and arm you with the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits and your teams’ habits – not by changing yourself or others, but by changing your systems. Together, we will explore practical strategies to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that will transform your habits, your team and deliver remarkable results that positively impact your bottom line and create workplaces that work for everyone.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS
New Rules to Navigate the Workplace in a Post #MeToo Era
ABBY WAMBACH,
activist for equality and inclusion, best-selling author and two-time Olympic gold medalist
The #MeToo movement has led us to a watershed moment. Cultural norms and workplace policies are evolving. And new questions and realities are starting to surface about what it means to achieve true partnership and equality. Feminist icon, gender and LGBTQ activist, and one of the most legendary soccer players of all time, Abby Wambach, empowers us with a call to action that will change our lives and the world through the power of our wolf and the strength of our pack. Leaving  behind the old rules of leadership that no longer serve the collective community, we will explore a new set of rules to help us unleash our individual power, unite with others and ultimately change the game to create workplaces that are equitable and work for everyone!
