Sessions 

General Session 
Monday, February 10

Why Motivating People Doesn’t Work… and What Does
Susan Fowler, Professor, Executive Leadership Program, University of San Diego, Best-Selling Author 

Stop trying to motivate people! Motivating people doesn’t work because people are already motivated—but, often in detrimental ways. What matters most is the reason people are motivated. 

Based on cutting edge research that explains the true nature of human motivation, Susan poses a dramatic idea—motivation is a skill. Exciting new science provides the understanding for how motivation can be taught, learned, and nurtured as a skill. 

In her presentation, Susan will teach you how to activate optimal motivation for yourself and with others. She asks you to consider how embracing this compelling paradigm of motivation can transform the quality of people’s work—and life—experience.

Susan reveals best practices for increasing productivity and work passion. Her Optimal Motivation approach provides a field-tested framework and process for helping people discover how their jobs can satisfy the psychological needs—for autonomy, relatedness, and competence—that lead to meaningful and sustainable motivation. 


Breakout Sessions 
You’ll attend one each day, from Tuesday February 11—Thursday February 13

Becoming a Values-Based Leader
Harry Kraemer, Kellogg School of Management Professor, former CEO of Baxter, Best-Selling Author

Sometimes "doing the right thing" while also delivering lasting results is difficult for leaders to achieve. Values-based leaders are needed more than ever in today's economic and political environment. 

In a dynamic session that draws on Professor Kraemer's global experience as the chairman and CEO of Baxter International, and a professor at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, participants will learn the importance of Four Key Principles (self-reflection, balance, true self-confidence, and genuine humility) in the actions and decisions they make as a leader of their organization.


Negotiations and Influence: The Art of Working with People and Getting Things Done
Holly Schroth, Senior Lecturer, Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley

On the job and in our personal lives, we all need a broad array of negotiation skills to get our solutions accepted and implemented. 

Using a simulated negotiation exercise, you’ll be introduced to a toolbox of negotiation skills, and learn how to negotiate more effectively in both collaborative and competitive situations. In the process, you’ll explore your negotiation style, gain a greater appreciation for the importance of planning and preparation, and learn to develop stronger working relationships. 

You’ll head home with greater confidence in your ability to negotiate with anyone, anywhere!
 

Conversational Capacity: The Secret to Building Successful Teams That Perform When The Pressure Is On
Craig Weber,  Best-Selling Author

Conversational capacity refers to a team’s ability to engage in open, balanced, nondefensive dialogue about difficult subjects and in challenging circumstances. 

A team with high conversational capacity can perform well, remaining on track even when dealing with their most troublesome issues. A team lacking that capacity, by contrast, can see their performance derail over a minor disagreement. This capacity isn’t just another aspect of effective teamwork – it defines it. 

As our world grows more complex and less predictable, the ability to work together effectively under pressure is a pivotal competence that separates those who struggle from those who succeed. The more challenging the situation we’re facing, the higher the conversational capacity we need to deal with it well.

Drawing on respected research in leadership studies, business management, psychology, and neuroscience, the Conversational Capacity Workshop will show you how to build healthier, more adaptive teams and working relationships. Highly practical, these ideas have been tested and refined in a host of tough organizational settings. The bottom line? They work.

Craig will help you develop skills to help your teams, departments, projects, or institution work smarter, faster, and together under pressure. He’ll show you how to foster responsibly rigorous teamwork, characterized by less strife and more collaboration; less rigidity and more dexterity; less defensiveness and more learning; and less frustration and more fun.
