Rave Reviews About Seth Mattison
You have probably heard speakers on the topic of generational differences in the workplace, but Seth Mattison is by far the best. His presentation 'Rocking the Workplace: Managing and Leading the Four Generations' skips over all the negative and annoying stereotypes ('millennials have no loyalty, no work ethic') and gets the audience fired up about the idea of getting along with four—soon to be five—generations at once. His presentation is fun and funny, energetic, and totally relatable. He manages to engage every member of the audience, which in most cases will span every generation, in an affectionate and endearing way.

For future focused organizations to succeed in the age of the networks and digital transformation, a bold approach to leadership is needed. An approach where freedom, agility, trust, and experimentation are not only embraced but encouraged.

Unfortunately while our advancement in technology has equipped us to navigate the disruptive waters of change, our leadership ethos has not. Today, many of our organizations unconsciously operate from an industrial age leadership mindset that undervalues unconventional thinking, discourages full transparency, deters initiative, frustrates experimentation, and allows people to play small all despite our best efforts. Why are we stuck? What’s blocking our ability to shift mindsets and embrace the future of leadership and ultimately ignite the workforce of the future?

Seth will provide a road map for anticipating the strategic challenges that demand fundamentally new thinking. Inspire leaders to break free from obsolete mental models that limit growth and transformation. And help leaders build tomorrow’s best practices today to compete and win in the new networked world of work.

  • Deep insights into the skills, competencies, and mindsets that will define a “Connected Age” leader in the age of the networks.

  • A clear set of guideposts for conducting high-value, low-risk experiments to foster of culture of flexibility, courage, and innovation.
  • Best-in-class examples of organization successfully navigating the forces impacting the future of work.
