Presenter:
Paul Meshanko, CEO, Legacy Business Cultures
Workplace Application:
Learn strategies to lessen the negative effect of unconscious biases, both cognitive and implicit, on decision-making and interactions with professional peers. 

We all know how important it is to be adaptable in a changing work environment of new initiatives, restructurings, mergers and evolving business priorities. It is crucial for HR professionals to have flexible mindsets and behaviors, in order to effectively set the pace for others. But even simple changes rarely are. As creatures of habit, we unconsciously push back on the unfamiliar, so change doesn’t come easily—and that’s just with managing ourselves. Add the complexity of co-workers, peers and subordinates going through their own changes, and leading an organization through change becomes downright daunting. Explore the science and biology that enables or hinders our efforts at behavior change in this interactive, humorous program. Learn and practice six powerful techniques—tested and validated by over 100,000 individuals experiencing organizational changes—to help you navigate future changes with greater success and less stress.

Learning Objectives:

  • The brain’s automatic preference for doing things the same way it has done them in the past, and why unpredictability is so unsettling.
  • How to pay closer attention to and manage your own “self-talk” as a first step in locking onto more productive future attitudes and behaviors.
  • The importance of relationships, and why it is crucial to surround yourself with supportive peers and friends when going through change.
  • Why establishing personal accountability and proactivity are the greatest deterrents to falling into a “victim of change” mindset.
  • Sound “change hygiene” basics, especially sleep and the cultivation of gratitude.

Workplace Application:
Simple tools and practical strategies are provided for the modern leader to ensure that teams and talent are able to quickly align, adapt and deliver. 

Resistance to change is among the top five generators of workplace drama, which can translate into hours of employee unproductivity. (Do employees request time to “grieve” when necessary changes are made for the organization to stay competitive? Do they complain that change is too hard?) But change isn't hard—it's only hard for the unready. This counterintuitive session is a call to greatness for the modern leader, whose role is to cultivate teams and talent to be ready for what's next. This can be achieved by debunking the change myths that fuel the need to sympathize with employees, preventing readiness for change. Leave with simple tools and practical strategies to ensure that your teams are able to quickly align, adapt and deliver per the organization’s need to meet the competitive demands of the market and customers.

How to Manage and Exceed Diversity Return on Expectations (DROEX)®
06/25/2019 07:15 AM - 08:15 AM | Westgate Ballroom B

1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Business Acumen, Global & Cultural Effectiveness | Intended Audience: Mid-Level
Presenter:
Edward E. Hubbard, Ph.D., President & CEO, Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc.
Workplace Application:
Learn to design effective diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives that make an impact and meet or exceed stakeholder expectations. 

An essential part of the role of a robust D&I organization is meeting C-suite expectations. By accurately identifying those expectations and meeting or exceeding them consistently, your department is likely to enjoy happier internal and external customers and a healthier perception of D&I’s ability to drive the organization’s bottom line and profits. One major challenge is that expectations are often moving targets: they can grow and shrink, change shape and direction, shift constantly and easily. How satisfied or dissatisfied your customers are is determined by your performance in meeting these expectations. It is therefore critical for D&I professionals to utilize specifically structured techniques and tools based on valid scientific processes designed to tap into these expectations and deliver value.

Learning Objectives:

  • Apply seven critical analysis levels to meet and exceed customer expectations.
  • Use tools and templates to select the right strategic D&I initiatives that align with the organization’s strategic performance outcomes.
  • Use the Diversity Return on Expectations (DROEX)® process for current and upcoming D&I initiatives.
  • Build strategic business partnerships with key stakeholders.

Political winds may blow toward trade and immigration restrictions, but strong technological trends are favoring a friction-free economy. As the economy transforms, barriers to entry are coming down in almost every business. These observations are among many shared by FORTUNE magazine’s Geoff Colvin, whose unique perspective is rooted in long-standing relationships with the world’s top business and government leaders. He knows what they’re seeing, thinking and planning, and reveals how you can learn from their choices and response to today’s challenges.

  • How technology will take over some skills involving emotion and human interaction—but not all.
  • Organizations training in these skills today.

Presenter:
Cy Wakeman, Cy Wakeman, Inc.
Workplace Application:
Find out about the high cost of drama in the workplace, and learn proven strategies to reveal our natural state of innovation. 

There is a cost to drama in the workplace, both in the happiness of employees and in millions of dollars of waste in organizations. Employees spend almost two and a half hours per day indulging in ego-driven behaviors (e.g., low accountability, resisting change, withholding buy-in, blaming, venting), our natural human reaction to change and challenging situations. This energy can be conserved and reinvested with a few simple changes in how we think, how we lead and how we work. By using good mental processes, we can bypass the ego, ditch the drama, and reveal our natural state of innovation and collaboration. This opens us up to endless possibilities and create a whole new level of potential for ourselves and results for the organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the differences between the “high self,” the “low self,” and the ability to toggle between them.
  • Ensure that you are using your best self to ditch the drama in challenging situations and circumstances.
  • Recognize that accountability drives engagement.
  • Identify ways to positively impact relationships and strategic organizational goals.

You will learn about the biology of trust and distrust and gain new perspectives for minimizing distrust. 

Everyone knows trust is critical to relationships and team health. Without it, productivity decreases, innovation disappears, and absences increase. How do we mitigate distrust when it is often invisible? The latest neuroscience helps us understand ways in which we intentionally and unintentionally build or break trust. Together we will explore how the brain reacts to stress, how that stress contributes to distrust, and explore ways for you to build trust.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the neuroscience of stress and how it impacts trust.
  • Learn about the concept of Amygdala Hijacking on the brain.
  • Identify four default stress responses and how they influence relationships.

If you’re doing HR on your own, this interactive program will walk you through what you need to know to meet the organization’s needs,  implement initiatives that will transform your business, and keep your sanity. You’ll get tools and tips that work, are simple and budget-friendly, and can be used tomorrow!

  • Develop resources to help get the job done efficiently and economically.

Become better able to design and facilitate change strategies that take neuroscience into consideration—the human side of change. 

Change has always been with us; some say it is the only constant. What, then, is so different about change at this time? Things seems to be moving faster and with a disruptive unpredictability.

Employees are not prepared. HR has a crucial role in helping people and organizations position themselves “just right” to win in times of change. This workshop focuses on understanding the neuroscience of human change, explains why it can be so difficult for people to adapt, and explores key practical strategies for leading the human side of change.

Learning Objectives:

  • Why data privacy is important to HR.
  • The impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on HR globally.
  • Specific steps that HR can take to prepare for future data privacy regulations.
