Dr. Rick Brandon
This workshop adjusts attitudes about power and politics, confronts naiveté about organizational dynamics, and provides practical strategies for building organizational impact. Those strategies include ethical lobbying, addressing hidden agendas, promoting yourself with integrity, and respecting turf and ego. This session is designed to benefit those well-intentioned individuals whose lack of political skills leaves them vulnerable to being underestimated, sabotaged, and denied credit for their ideas and work.

Dr. Julia Sloan
Intended for leaders who currently work with strategy, the focus of this session is on the learning aspect of strategic thinking: what it is and how to strengthen your own strategic thinking and energize the strategic capability of your organization. Being strategically competitive in today’s chaotic and complex global environment requires a different way of looking at how we approach strategic thinking. Leaders who are tasked with strategic responsibility must be attentive, agile, adaptive and innovative thinkers Four key issues are addressed in this session: What is strategic thinking? What makes leaders “strategic?” Why do organizations need strategic thinkers? How can strategic thinking be strengthened?

Ms. Sara King
In this session, women leaders will examine their own profile of success and areas for development. They will also focus on the key ingredients that continue to hold women back: not developing and articulating a leadership vision, not paying attention to the political landscape, and not strengthening the breadth and depth of relationships. They will leave this session with practical tools and individual insights to apply in their current roles.
