The Emerging Future: Building Future-Ready Organizations and High-Performing Cultures to Compete and Win in The Decade Ahead
As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, leaders prepare to face an unrelenting and continuously shifting landscape of change and transformation. Of course, change has always been a reality for the modern-day leader but today it knows no boundaries, no borders, and no breaks. The impact of this can be felt as individuals fatigue under the weight of extreme ambiguity.
From ever-evolving go-to-market strategies and expanding customer expectations to an emerging list of new future-ready competencies and new ways of working, today’s leaders are seeking certainty about the future and the confidence to trust themselves to rise to the occasion and meet the moment with influence and impact.
Rooted in the research and bolstered by time advising high performers in the field, Seth Mattison will help prepare leadership teams to meet the decade ahead with confidence, clarity, and conviction.
Attendees will gain insight into:
The Heart of Business: The Secret and the Science to Influencing and Leading During Times of Transformation
Leadership has always been about one thing: influence. To effectively manage transformation today, leaders must have the understanding and the skill to not only connect with the rational and logical aspects of people’s brains but also have the capacity to reach their hearts in order to understand what ultimately drives human behavior at the deepest level.
As traditional hierarchies are re-examined and leadership becomes less about title, tenure, and time at the organization and more about influence, impact, and connection to their heart, our ability to develop, cultivate, and grow our personal presence and own our capacity to reveal our full selves every single day will become the new mandate for leadership in the modern era.
In this highly interactive deep-dive discussion, Seth will shed light on these questions and add a new perspective to the conversation of leadership today by dissecting the most critical skills and competencies leaders will need to acquire in order to elevate their impact on the teams they’re supporting, the organizations they’re leading, and the communities they live in.
• Perspective on the neuroscience and neurocardiology of influence and change
• An unprecedented look at the global research of heart-based leadership and its impact on performance, culture, and organizational growth
• A new framework for architecting and articulating communication strategies and cultural competencies that reach people and influence behavior
• Access to case studies from category-leading brands activating heart-based cultures to drive growth
The Human Connection: Harnessing the Power of Belonging to Activate High Performance and Organizational Resiliency
In a world of uncertainty, ambiguity, change, and transformation, leaders today face a stark reality to compete, grow, and scale the business. And while technology supports this evolution, people make it a reality. Specifically, individuals that feel a deep sense of connection and commitment to themselves, their work, and the eco-systems that support them.
What’s possible when environments are created where talent feels safe enough to be free and supported enough to truly belong? When these elements begin to align and experiences unfold, an expansive and abundant future takes shape.
Backed by a decade of research on high-performance cultures, the neuroscience of change, and real-world applications from category-leading brands navigating transformation, this program will unpack one of the most important talent trends of the next decade to help leaders motivate, inspire and drive synergy across teams and organizational structures.
Leading High-Performance Virtual Teams: Strategies for Succeeding with a Remote Workforce
As we enter a new era of digital work, leaders are faced with the challenge of reengineering their organizations for a mobile-first culture in order to drive business performance and maintain cultural cohesiveness from afar. Shepherding a virtual future will be the mandate for the modern leader.
When teams are dispersed and isolated from each other, new systems, processes, skills, and competencies will be required to effectively adapt and evolve to these new environments. The challenges of isolation, social distancing and working from home will give leaders a unique opportunity to create compelling new digital remote work environments that are engaging, participatory, and full of the human connection we deeply value.
In this program, Seth Mattison will unpack the opportunities our new virtual environment presents along with research, case studies, and best practices for what leaders and managers can do today to effectively support and lead a remote workforce and mobile-first future.

Guiding the Way: The Secret and the Science to Influencing and Leading During Times of Crisis
To effectively lead through unprecedented uncertainty today, leaders must have a framework for understanding external forces of change and the competence to confidently make decisions with limited and incomplete information.
It requires leaders to have mindsets rooted in certainty and resilience and the capacity to align and assure their cultures around a clear vision and decisive action.
As our ambiguous and uncertain future unfolds, some organizations will meet the moment with resilience, for others the future will be catastrophic. The actions of executives and their teams now, in the midst of crisis, will significantly determine their fate.
