If you will be at the upcoming HRPA Conference in Toronto, be sure to join me for two talks I’ll be giving: The Meta-Skilled Organization: Building the Capacity to Evolve, and Future-Proofing Your Organization. Watch the video below for more information or keep reading for a text version.
Sunrise Keynote | The Meta-Skilled Organization: Building the Capacity to Evolve
Thursday, January 23rd, 2020 – 7:15AM – Room 718A – Session #202
This is a sunrise keynote, and the topic of the day is going to be evolution.
In a world where job requirements are changing, new skills are emerging, old skills need to be discarded, there has never been a time where evolution and adaptability is more important.
It’s not that helpful to just tell people, “hey, you need to get better at evolving.” We need to help them understand how. I’ll unpack it the capability of evolution and have, what I hope, is a really interesting discussion on the role of self-awareness, flexibility, creativity, resilience, and a couple other key ingredients that go into personal evolution.
Breakout Session | Future-Proofing Your Organization
Friday, January 24th, 2020 – 9:45AM – Room 711 – Session #306
In this breakout session, I’ll have an opportunity to unpack resilience, which is a key part of the journey of evolution. Resilience is one of my favorite topics, and for my money, there has never been a time where resilience has been more important.
We are dealing with change. We are dealing with setbacks. We need individuals, teams, and organizations that can cultivate the ability to navigate change with resilience and adaptability.
And there are a lot of questions around resilience: Is it something that you’re born with? Is it something that we can build? How does resilience differ across individuals and teams?
I’ll unpack what we’ve learned from our work in sport and business, and hopefully answer a couple of those questions, while starting a bit of a dialog on this really important topic.
