Today’s best leaders are tuned into the issue of diversity. Understanding ethnic, gender and income diversity is important. However, we often overlook the issue of generational diversity. Today’s workplace has up to five generations collaborating, and at times, they can feel like cross-cultural relationships. This session will explain the key difference of each generation and the strengths each one brings that can add value to the team especially in the aftermath of a pandemic. Most importantly, this session will unveil the critical social and emotional skills needed for each of us to thrive with each other.

Want to get to the heart of culture in your organization? Learn the story of your culture. The stories that embody the heroes at work and the way work is done. While many companies describe their values as the heart of their culture, these stories truly highlight what is encouraged and rewarded, or what is discouraged and stopped. This story-based session examines the culture of different companies, helps you to understand the story your culture tells, and provides practical tips each leader can use to shape on culture daily.

This is now.

• The Great Resignation is here

• Another public health crisis looms

• Burnout is a beast

• Impacts from remote work are wide-ranging

• DEI infrastructure is no longer optional

• Workforce shortages are wreaking havoc

• Mentor programs are no longer a nice to have

• Gen Z is here (4 Generations in the workforce)

Your best hope is your Front Line Managers – with the right help.

But here is the Middle Manager Conundrum: while they have the highest impact on company success or failure they get little to no support or training.

Strategic Future, LLC

“The world in front of us is radically different than the world behind us.” As the world changes, generation gaps widen and face of business evolves, the need for leaders to understand the times and know how to adapt becomes imperative.

The fact is most of today’s leaders were “trained for a world that is disappearing.” Thus, the need for leaders to evolve and adapt to the changing business environment.

60% of younger employees are currently looking for new employment opportunities. 29% of Millennials consider themselves engaged at work. 43% know what their coworkers are expected to do at work and view that as negative.

The problem, however, is not that the world is changing, but what to do about it. In this session I will discuss what leaders need to do to evolve with a changing culture to engage their employees, build a high-performing team and attract and retain talent.

2020 was a year that was defined by anxiety and stress for most companies and for the workforce.  We seemed to careen from one stressful crisis to another: a global pandemic that killed more than 500,000 in the U.S. alone; an economic collapse that left tens-of-millions of the most vulnerable unemployed and many businesses and industries struggling; social upheavals that put a spotlight on the harsh reality of racial inequality; and political turmoil that tested our democracy.

Most people would agree that the way we live, work, and play will never be the same. Countless questions are presented about the future of work, the workplace, and the workforce, including what old rules need to be broken, re-written, or discarded, as employers and employees alike try to adjust to a new environment.

This session will address many of the prevalent questions being asked today. Participants will learn:

• How organizations should consider revising their operations and managing their workforces, given all of the changes, and what this means for employers and employees.

• How employees’ expectations about work and the workplace have changed

• What factors employers should consider when seeking new additions to their workforce.

• What impact technology will have on the workforce in the future.

• How employers should handle return-to-the-office plans – both remote and on site – as well as issues relating to vaccinations and/or employee well-being.

As in-person business was ramping up, COVID-19’s Delta variant spike resulted in businesses pivoting to remote work and vaccine mandates. Management has taken varying stances on employee vaccination, including mandating vaccination, strongly encouraging vaccination, or abandoning all forms of regulation all together. Even for the most strident vaccine mandates, however, exceptions may need to be made based on certain protected classifications (most commonly, disability, religion, and pregnancy). Ultimately, workplaces are left with the safety challenge of managing a partially vaccinated workforce, along side of the mounting challenges posed by the Delta variant.

In a partially vaccinated workplace, how can HR professionals manage legal compliance and risk management? We will discuss the following common approaches, including  “pros” and “cons” and legal best practices:

• Requiring COVID-19 testing.

• Tracking vaccination status.

• Incentivizing vaccination.

• Treating all employees as if they are unvaccinated.

• Mandating vaccination as a condition of employment for new applicants.

In addition, we will discuss the status of vaccine mandates, considering the new vaccine booster shots and FDA approval for Pizer’s vaccine.

Research shows every conversation failure costs an organization an average of $7,500 and seven workdays in lost time and resources. Some conversation failures cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. What’s more, conversation failures are rampant. Conversation failures happen when stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong. Lack of skills and know-how prevent people from speaking effectively or speaking up altogether. As a result, problems go unresolved or are made worse. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Attend this session and learn how to speak up when it matters most—to foster alignment, agreement, and safety around high-stakes issues.

In 2021, and until at least 2024, you can expect a shift in focus from our Department of Labor wage and hour division from an approach of compliance assistance to one of enforcement. There will be an increase in wage and hour investigations conducted by the Biden Department of Labor. In this session, we will discuss the most common wage and hour violations committed by employers as it concerns their non-exempt employees. We will discuss overtime page, discretionary and non-discretionary bonuses, travel pay, meal breaks, and expense reimbursement, which are the areas of wage and hour law that tend to get employers in trouble.

Every day, we make split second judgments, about language, behavior, and our perception of others. The human brain processes massive amounts of detail by creating shortcuts and instantaneously categorizing new information based on previous experience, social conditioning, and stereotypes. In this process, known as unconscious or implicit bias, our brain sorts people into social groups and assigns an identity based on characteristics such as age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, and religion. We pay attention to facts that support our associations and filter out facts that oppose them. We tend to associate positive qualities with, and favor, people who are like us (in-group bias). These automatic thoughts and feelings are hard to control or stifle and have a profound effect in the workplace.

How many times have you seen two different people experience the exact same event and have a totally different outcome? The world is feeling the adverse effects of stress, anxiety, especially after the 2020 COVID Pandemic.
We read about the stressful headlines every day: job loss, uncertainty, death tolls. It’s not very motivating. In life, we encounter problems as often as we breathe. But they don’t get to us until we feel a major challenge, and that’s when the mounting problems become a source of concern, hurt, or sorrow. More than ever, we need to refocus and maximize what is important in our life at that very moment.
The leaders that maximize their controllables and reset their lives will get a head start to winning like a Champion.
In this session you will learn
* Find your Win: What’s Important Now
* Focus: Creating a Growth Mindset.
* Audacity: Finding opportunities, even the ones you can’t see yet.
* Solutions: Tap into resources on building a better YOU.

“I just don’t understand the way you think!” If you’ve ever thought or said these words, then this session is for you! Our background, experiences, and genetic blueprint all play a role in the way we prefer to think and perceive. Some may think more socially and conceptually, others may prefer to think more analytically and structurally. This tends to cause an intent impact gap which can lead to conflict and misunderstandings. It’s essential that we understand the melting pot of perception and gain a greater awareness of cognitive diversity. Becoming knowledgeable of thinking preferences will minimize the intent impact gap and help us communicate not only to others but for others.

Linda Swindling
Your Go-To Negotiation Expert

*Do you ask for what you want? Or, do you simply take what you’re offered? There is magic in asking. The strongest friendships, top sales teams, and most successful businesses have one thing in common – courageous people who feel the fear and still ask for what they want. People who achieve the best results are people who know how to ask outrageously. In this presentation, Linda Swindling shares tactics and strategies which help people show up powerfully and ask for what they really want. She’ll show how to spot the other people’s negotiation (DEAL) styles in order to communicate effectively and create outrageously great outcomes. Team members and their leaders will know how to negotiate the best deals at work and in life with confidence and integrity. After attending, participants leave with strategies to: Turn negotiations into a conversation instead of a confrontation; Show up powerfully and communicate effectively so that others will listen; Reach winning results with integrity and confidence; Create significant connections with key people and attract support for their ideas; Spot other people’s negotiation (DEAL) styles; and Make confident decisions and embrace strategic risk taking.

A multitude of factors from: political polarization, senseless killings of minorities, the “Black Lives Matter” movement, Covid and the impact on working women, and the lack of women and minorities in corporate board rooms, are just a few of the issues that have contributed to a heighted effort for companies to address the need for equity and inclusion in the workplace. It’s been in company plans for years but it’s the urgency and the execution to do foster lasting change has never been higher. A panel of consultants and HR practitioners will address this issue head on covering topics like: how to foster courageous conversations; training and coaching for HR teams and ambassadors, issues around unconscious bias and more.

The workplace has always been an arena of change, flux and even chaos. HR professionals have seen massive changes in the way people work, live, play and socialize – and have had to adapt their advice and practices accordingly. All of that was before COVID-19. The year 2020 was a game changer. There has never been a more transformative time in our world — and our work world — than the past year. HR professionals must be able to make sense of all the moving parts and help their organizational leaders navigate the serious disruptions that will continue to arise at a historically rapid pace. During this presentation, Fisher Phillips attorney Terri Stewart will provide insight on disruptive workplace trends, including how HR can successfully navigate the new normal in today’s workplace and the impact social justice issues have on workplace culture.

While federal law says marijuana remains a prohibited Schedule I drug, an abundance of states now allow both medical and recreational marijuana use. CBD is on every store counter, even in coffee shops. How can a responsible employer still provide a safe workplace? Can employees really use (or be under the influence of) drugs while at work? Can an employer insist on zero tolerance and remove marijuana users from the job? Can if afford to do so? Are companies abandoning drug testing? What if an employee actually claims it’s necessary to take drugs (e.g., marijuana, CBD, pain killers) due to a physical or emotional or mental impairment, does that change the answer? This presentation will help HR professionals understand this balancing act of compliance – i.e., maintaining job safety while keeping up with rapidly-evolving societal viewpoints.

Learning Objectives

1. Understanding and complying with federal and state drug laws

2. Maintaining a safe and compliant workplace, while retaining employees

3. Enforcing the company’s substance abuse policies, as appropriate

4. Reasonably accommodating employees who may take drugs to cope with impairments

Closing the deficit between organizational leadership needs and those who are prepared to fill them, has been a top priority for senior leaders and HR Professionals for many years.  In fact, pre-pandemic, Harvard Business Review reported that on average, managers get their first leadership training about 10 years after they were promoted to a supervising role.  Post pandemic, this leadership gap has only widened.  Today, newly promoted leaders are not only managing a new role, but they have also been charged with managing change, new business strategies, and employee well-being.  In fact, since last year, employees have an even greater need for empathetic leadership.   In this session, Quionna Allen, will share actionable solutions to close the leadership gap with newly promoted leaders.

With so many employees working remotely, the ways that we have normally offered wellness programs should shift.   Creating or maintaining a culture of wellness is still a priority although the ways that we engage our staff will likely have a different feel.  According to the American Psychiatric Association (APA), more than one-third of Americans (36%) say COVID-19 is having a serious impact on their mental health and most (59%) feel it is having a serious impact on their day to day lives.  Productivity will likely be affected due to family or friend health challenges, work-life balance, loneliness and other factors.    Create  a plan to keep you employees engaged in your virtual, onsite or hybrid program  now and in the  future.

The pandemic threw everyone a financial curveball, and many employees were struggling already, living paycheck to paycheck and borrowing from their 401(k) to make ends meet even before COVID-19 introduced a new reality. Recovery is going to take time, but employers have a significant opportunity to help enhance the financial wellbeing of their workforce. In this session, we’ll review 2021 research on employees’ current financial situation and their financial stress. The data affords interesting insight into how their households have been impacted by the pandemic and what they expect things to look like in 2022. We’ll use this information to paint a clearer picture of what employee financial stress really looks like, and we’ll learn ways employers can help. This includes well-rounded benefit packages with an array of voluntary benefits aimed at solving the challenges our employees are struggling with now more than ever.

While everyone cherishes “the good times”, it is often the moments of failure, disappointment, or even loss that ultimately shape who we are. The best HR professionals overcome stress, anxiety, and disengagement in these times through the power of resilience.  But what is resilience exactly – and why is this trait more important than ever?

In this compelling and timely program, we define resilience as the speed and strength of your response to adversity. To kick off the program, participants take a “fitness check” assessment to determine the strength of their “resiliency muscle”.  Next, we detail the business case for resilience to exemplify why this is a critical skill for both leaders and individual contributors.  The bulk of the program unpacks the 5 proven ways every HR person can build their resiliency muscle: It’s all about having a growth mindset, releasing circumstances outside of control, avoiding traps of permanence, preventing spirals, and fostering connection with those around you.  Lastly, we offer insight on how to infuse resilience on your team, by finding the balance between sharing authentically and remaining optimistic.

Sarah Noll Wilson (She/Her)  M.S. CPCC

We know it feels amazing to work on a productive team that can not only meet goals, but support each other while doing it. When we don’t have that experience, it’s easy to feel that we were the victims of chance or to put blame on the other people. But what if there were a way to create powerful partnership by design instead of by chance?     

In this thoughtful session, Sarah Noll Wilson leads you to a new level of insight and thinking about how to design partnerships that are productive, supportive, and resilient.        

Drawing on the work of Adaptive Leadership and Conversational Intelligence, combined with modeling and insights from thousands of hours of coaching teams, Sarah will share practical insights, grounded in science, to help build powerful partnership so you and your organization can thrive.  

After this session, you will have a dynamic combination of theory and tools you can use to create or deepen you connections. Together we will explore:   

  • Shifting our focus on intentional relationship building “from chance to choice”  
  • Key ideas of healthy relationship  
  • Four ways we damage relationship
  • The process of designing alliances

2021 is turning out to be another year full of major transitions.  As we come through the pandemic, the impact of working from home, social isolation, remote learning, and loss of loved ones, is causing a spike in divorces.  

Divorce is ranked the #2 life stressor – just after death of a spouse. It impacts mental and physical health, family, finances, career, and our sense of belonging and community. It also affects the bottom line for companies, through increased absenteeism, distractedness, rates of depression, heart attack, family violence, alcohol abuse, and more.   It’s clear that supporting employees in their personal – not just professional lives – enables them to live well and perform at a higher level. So what can you do to help?  

Join Pilar Prinz, co-founder of Divorce in Good Company and  Forwardly:  the Marital Repair & Divorce Wellness Toolkit, as she unpacks the current workplace trend in which employers shift from managing the employee experience to managing the life experience of their employees as she looks through the lens of divorce.

In many ways, the future of the workforce rests on the perspective and action of its leaders. Ethical, tactical, and affiliative leaders are leaders who create and sustain equitable workplaces, believe in restorative justice and promote corporate values that reflect a true, realistic, objective appreciation for diversity in both word and deed. And they do it for two reasons alone.  (1) It’s the right thing to do.  (2) Advancing the bottom line. 

 This presentation will help participants combat widespread organizational challenges by examining and discussing ways to transform their workplace and enhance equity for good.

What is the magic key of sustainability for all organizations, good or bad – branding.  The word derives from the physical act of branding live cattle with hot pokers to signify ownership.  In today’s world, companies are identified by brands of hot ideas, images, communications, and slogans that are durable, strong enough to withstand the structural boundaries that have now evaporated in an instant.

This session will share the comprehensive Employer Brand Strategy Development Process, including brand discovery through research, audit and assessment, understanding what your organization needs to change, and defining, activating, and communicating the brand.  Finally, once the strategy is implemented, I will also share how to measure the effectiveness of the brand through workforce metric KPIs.  How these elements marry the unique characteristics of individual employee brands is of particular note.  This intersection is the key to the success of talent management for all organizations.

Do you get easily frustrated, feel anxious about your to-dos, or wish you could shut up the voice in your head telling you that you must do more or be better in order to be successful? Besides the fact that stress ruins your day, it is estimated to be the cause of 90% of all our doctors’ visits and at the core of this country’s top chronic diseases (heart disease, obesity, depression, and cancer).

In this session you’ll learn how to determine the true source of your stress (and no, it’s not what you think it is) and how to live your life without anxiety, anger and other negative emotions. If you live in a high-pace environment aiming to ace your career and home life while feeling a greater sense of calm, you’ll want to be part of this talk.

Terry Wu, PhD.


Why is America so divided? It seems like we have an endless list of divisions. Republicans vs Democrats. Christians vs Muslims. Blacks vs Whites. Males vs Females. Haves vs Have-nots. Millennials vs everyone else. Is there hope that we, as a country, become united again? What can leaders do to address this divide and help bring us together?

Why do humans have so many ingenious ways to group people into us and them? Is it necessary for our survival? Over the past thousands of years, the divisions of us and them had led to wars, genocides, mass murders, discrimination, and conflicts. Are we hardwired to categorize people based on race, gender, party affiliation, socioeconomic status, age, profession, job description, work responsibility, or something we don’t even notice? How does the brain react to people who may appear different from us? How do our differences turn into beliefs that we are better, smarter than them?

In this talk, you will learn about the Neuroscience of this us-vs-them divide. You will find out how this unconscious divide can be learned or changed quickly. You will discover the impact of us-vs-them on our decisions and judgments. You will gain insights into how we can bridge this divide and create more harmony.

Get the answers to:

• Why do our brains need to make fast decisions?

• What creates the us-vs-them division? How does the brain respond to us vs them?

• Why do leaders need to understand this us-vs-them bias?

• How can we reduce our negative attitudes toward them?

• How can leaders create a diverse and inclusive culture?

Bill Wooditch

While success appears everywhere, most people skip on what it takes to get there – failure. Unfortunately, failure is the inevitable process that leads to eventual success. However, how often do people try to encourage failure in the workplace? Almost never. And yet, researchers in Google found that teams that courage failure tend to be the highest performing according to their research in Project Aristotle. Because of this hidden truth, it is no surprised that when Bill Wooditch first came across this principle, his career transformed. Bill became the top producing insurance agent in one year out of one thousand competitors and continued to hold this position because of this mindset. Imagine what you could do if yourself or your team knew how to embrace failure effectively? Would they execute faster? Innovate more? Or would they be more understanding of one another in trying times? This one-of-a-kind presentation helps your audience accept the unknown and turn the sting of failure into the reward of growth.

By embracing failure, not just “getting past it,” you will fly past your competition, whether you’re building a startup, advancing in your career, or improving your personal life. Your next level of achievement will be contingent upon your ability to learn from the lessons of failure and apply them for growth!

Catherine Mattice Zundel, MA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

Everyone in your organization is responsible for exemplifying and reinforcing positive, civil behavior. This means entry level employees, all the way up to C-Suite Executives, play a role in creating an inclusive work environment and culture. In order to do so, they must become aware of their own personal communication style and how it affects those around them, as well as have actionable tools for addressing non-inclusive behavior when they witness it. Leaders who attend this webinar will be able to go back to their organization with tangible tools for creating an inclusive workplace, where every employee is involved in sustaining a positive culture.
