Leadership Summit Keynote


by Joshua Allison, CUDE | Founder & Chief  Ideator | ThinkCafe

The workplace is quickly changing, as are the leaders in it. By the year 2025, 75 percent of the workplace will be comprised of the millennial generation, many of whom will be called on for key leadership roles. But as quickly as the workplace has changed, so have the tools needed to make a difference in it. Join us to discuss the required essentials for emerging leaders to survive and thrive in the workplace.

Key learning objectives include examining:

  • Recognize the distinction between heuristic (learn for yourself, such as hands-on learning) vs. algorithmic (step-by-step) work, and why it matters now more than ever.
  • Identify how utility, significance, and the abundance gap have changed recruitment,
    development, and retention.
  • Describe the four biggest myths about motivating employees and how to overcome them.
  • Explain strength-based coaching and learn how to increase your leadership influence
    with it.
  • Learn how to leverage the feedback loop for better employee/leader
  • Demonstrate why IQ is now commoditized and why EQ is the new workplace value
    Distinguish between soft skills and hard skills and understand which ones are needed most.
  • Identify entitlement, vanity, and the erosion of self-awareness.
