Attendees will learn the Curiosity First Approach coaching model that can be used to help team members powerfully navigate their avoidance of conflict. 

The strongest teams are not the ones without conflict; the strongest teams are those that know how to have conflict and thrive because of it. When teams are psychologically safe and adaptive, team members can be their whole authentic selves, they can ask questions, take risks, be able to fail, and disagree. There is a commitment to constant exploring, experimenting, and evolving on an individual level and as a team. Great teams do not happen by chance - they are built by choice.   But what if people aren't able or don't know how to engage in honest conversations that are candid, compassionate, and curious? Then the room fills with avoidance and elephants start to take up space. Now our teams are not only avoiding conflict, but connection as well. To overcome our avoidance of the problem, we need to understand how and why we are feeding the elephant. By taking a Curiosity First Approach, we increase ownership, have kind and candid conversations, and build more powerful partnerships.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify common avoidant behaviors and human factors that drive them.
  • Examine when avoidance may be appropriate and necessary.
  • Discover different "elephants" that can emerge.
  • Explore and apply the Curiosity First Model of Coaching.

Workplace crisis management helps HR leaders hone their communication and teambuilding skills in today's tumultuous business environment. 

2023 ushers in volumes of sweeping changes, from continuing to manage through the Covid crisis to large-scale employee turnover, silent quitting, and returning employees to the office. How HR leads its operational management teams through extended periods of upheaval directly ties to organizational effectiveness, culture change, and the bottom line. Join former CHRO of Nickelodeon, Paul Falcone, as he helps to identify new ways of mastering the ongoing aftershocks to our teams and organizations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore Individual Crises, including addressing "silent quitting" syndrome, termination and layoff communications, and dealing effectively with employee burnout.
  • Examine Departmental & Team Crises, including mediating employee disputes, putting a final end to bullying and passive-aggressive behaviors, and making it safe for your teams to share their concerns in a "psychologically safe" way.
  • Review Company Crises, including demands for hybrid work and returning reluctant employees to the office, threats to unionize, and being prepared for further global crises and natural disasters

By no means a "gloom and doom" approach to the many changes before us, Paul places a healthy and constructive spin on reinventing your role in light of your organization's and team's changing needs and provides timely tools and guidance to help you every step of the way.

The session will focus on helping attendees learn what vertical development is and how they can employ it to elevate executive effectiveness. 

Given the tumultuousness of the environment that executives operate within - including escalating change, pressure, uncertainty, and complexity - and statistics that indicate our struggle to develop effective executives, transformational improvement in how we develop executives is needed now more than ever. In this session, Ryan Gottfredson and Amy P. Kelly, SHRM-SCP, will discuss how human resource leaders can change or improve their practices to help their executives operate at a higher level. Specifically, Ryan and Amy will: 1. Explain how executives are commonly operating at a leadership deficit. Stated differently, we will illuminate the challenges executives are facing and how they are commonly operating at a level below the magnitude of these challenges. 2. Identify the common consequences of operating at a leadership deficit.  3. Introduce vertical development as the approach human resource leaders must take to develop executives, so they can operate at a higher level.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the degree to which your organization's executives are operating at a leadership deficit and identify the consequences.
  • Employ a transformational form of executive development, called vertical development, to elevate your executives' ability to navigate change, pressure, uncertainty, and complexity.
  • Elevate your organization by elevating the effectiveness of your organization's executives.
  • Expand your executive team's capacity to drive the organization through vertical development.
