DISRUPTIVE TRANSFORMATION

“Disrupt or die” has been the rallying cry for decades, but what does it actually mean to be disruptive, to make it the center of your strategy? Many established companies set a goal to develop “disruptive” innovations, believing innovation will disrupt their market and drive growth. But that’s not how it works: Disruption doesn’t create growth. Growth creates disruption.

In this speech, Charlene acknowledges that transformations are never easy, and the unrelenting pace of technological change makes it doubly difficult. But there’s hope and a way forward—starting with reframing your strategy, leadership, and culture so that disruptive growth is at the top of your agenda.

Audiences will learn to:

  • Define what disruption is—and isn’t—and how it can drive disruptive growth
  • Identify and prioritize the right disruptive growth moves and align the organization around them
  • Understand how leaders must show up differently when pursuing a disruption strategy
  • Instill disruption into a status-quo culture

THE FUTURE OF WORK

New technologies pop up daily that allow us to connect and communicate with employees in real time. Yet organizations are wired for a bygone era when there was the luxury of time and proximity. Most organizations measure employee engagement in yearly surveys—hardly the way to truly engage employees in the digital era.

In this speech, Charlene makes the case to develop a new mindset, one that’s centered on creating a long-term relationship with employees that melds holistically with creating great experiences for customers. From creating belonging among hybrid workers to the adoption of generative AI, we’ll dig deep into how technology is changing the nature of work and our relationship with employees.

Audiences will learn to:

  • Understand how employee expectations in the workplace are being influenced by their personal use of technology, especially generative AI
  • Prepare for the long-term implications for employee engagement
  • Identify the experiences that employees value the most
  • Create rich collaboration experiences that support a different way of work

LEADERSHIP IN THE DIGITAL AGE

Digital technologies have revolutionized relationships, and leadership is no exception. To be truly engaged, effective leaders must harness and master the power of digital communications and branding, especially with the challenges of leading a distributed team.

In this speech, Charlene explains that the key is understanding how your personal leadership style can be extended and scaled through digital techniques to achieve your most important goals. You’ll learn the art and science of how to listen, share, and engage with employees and customers in the digital era. We’ll also discuss common objections and concerns of leaders and how to address them.

Audiences will learn to:

  • Master a new way of developing relationships, which begins by stepping out of traditional hierarchies
  • Listen at scale, share to shape, and engage to transform
  • Shift to a digital mindset
  • Apply the right digital tools to meet strategic goals

LEADING WITH WISDOM

What does it mean to be wise? Wisdom is not just a matter of intelligence, knowledge, or character. Smart people make foolish decisions all the time. But what if we could improve our decision-making even a little bit and make consistently wiser choices? Imagine the exponential impact if we could intentionally support the people in our organizations to be wiser, regardless of their experience levels.

In this speech, Charlene takes audiences on a journey of discovery toward experiencing the true power of wisdom. With the right tools and guidance, you, too, can learn to make the right decisions and create a life and organization filled with meaning, purpose, and happiness.

Audiences will learn to:

  • Define wisdom in the context of leading an organization
  • Develop wisdom in themselves and others
  • Create a wise organization capable of consistently making great decisions
