Social Super Glue: How to Create a Culture that Strengthens Your Team During Crisis
Leading through a crisis can be brutal.  Your team is dealing with uncertainty, stress and duress. In this insightful and energized presentation, Kris Boesch weaves valuable content, enlightening stories and tangible tools to create “social super glue” that is foundational to holding a team together in crisis. This is cultural savviness at a whole new level. Participants will learn how to create voluntary collaboration, camaraderie and connection amongst their teams. This "glue" results in perseverance through tough times, inspiration to go the extra mile and the fortitude to sustain a positive and successful work environment.

Digital Transformation Is Not Optional
Most organizations are aware of the need to transform in order to remain both relevant and competitive in the new digital economy. But awareness and action are different, and sometimes it takes a crisis such as Covid-19 to trigger action.

The reality for many organizations is that their next crisis - caused by the emergence of new business models - could be far more significant and less forgiving if an adequate transformation of their business has not already been achieved.

Rob Llewellyn will elaborate on why no CEO can afford to undermine the legitimate transformation of their business, along with some of the steps they can take to create the new future their organizations need.

Leadership in Times of Uncertainty
Leadership in Times of Uncertainty will expose past, present and future world disasters and transformations that trigger the necessity of capable people (leaders) to manage change and ambiguity during and after crisis. Not everyone is born a leader, but anyone can become one. The presentation will challenge the audience to question themselves, “What do I need to do to become a leader?”. “What capabilities and skills do I need to be a leader?”. Moreover, the speech will explore methods on Emotional intelligence and tools around a collective intelligent framework, that will help become a world class leader, will help keep the momentum up to survive the repetitive cycles of transformation and crisis; and will react to preserve the calmness of people in difficult times.
