Women & Leadership: The Art of Navigating Headwinds
Monday, April 8, 10:45 a.m.
Despite the efforts of some companies to promote more women, the number of senior female leaders in Corporate America remains stubbornly low. Adam Bryant will lead a discussion with proven leaders, including Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, and Shellye Archambeau, the former CEO of MetricStream, about the headwinds they navigated on their way to the top, their advice for other women, and what companies can do to create cultures that accelerate all talent, regardless of gender.
The conversation will address some of the most vexing questions that women face at work, including: What does it mean for women to have a "voice" in meetings? How can they navigate perceptions around assertiveness, particularly when they are often judged more harshly than men? Is much of the conversation around women and leadership really just about power? What are the most effective tactics to use in the tough situations that women face with stubborn regularity?

Southwest came from a crazy idea on a cocktail napkin and three aircraft serving three cities to the nation's largest carrier. It's taken (and continues to take!) boldness and courage to do things our own way. We're a little quirky. We've zigged when others have zagged. But we know who we are, and we've never wavered from our People-centric philosophy.
For nearly five decades, Southwest Airlines' world-famous Culture has created a loyal following with happy Employees translating to happy Customers and happy Shareholders—a philosophy that has proven to be a formula for success.
Join Julie Weber, Vice President and Chief People Officer at Southwest Airlines, to learn how infusing a little courage and boldness in your existing culture can make all the difference.

As organizations evolve and innovate to stay competitive, it requires a keen focus on people as a key driver of the overall business strategy. It isn't a one-size-fits all and it requires a strong alignment between the CEO and CHRO to determine what people strategies will enable the organization to succeed.
In this session, you will hear how Carlos Migoya, President & CEO and Julie Staub, CHRO of Jackson Health System in Miami, made the people strategy a priority, despite deep financial challenges. With healthcare changing at a rapid pace and becoming more consumer-centric, Jackson's future and turnaround required significant culture transformation. You will hear a powerful story of how a strong partnership between the CEO and CHRO is changing the face of Jackson and making it an everlasting, vibrant part of the Miami community.
Carlos Migoya, Chief Executive Officer, Jackson Health System
Wherefore Art Thou All Our Women High-Potentials?
Monday, April 8, 3:00 p.m.
Women's leadership today invites questions and compels courageous and bold "Calls to Action" that leaders can take to improve the number of talented women in leadership pipelines.
You may be asking: Why aren't more women in top leadership roles? How do we go about identifying more women for high-potential lists? If women represent such a significant portion of the workforce at lower management levels, why aren't they ascending to the upper ranks – what are the issues that need addressing? How may I use my power and authority as a leader to help my organization become more gender inclusive?
Even if your organization has well-developed processes, it does not mean that you are protected from the stereotypical thinking that may creep in during implementation of policies and practices. In this interactive session you will learn more about the actions you may take to identify and address the hidden challenges in talent management, leadership development, and reward systems to achieve greater gender inclusion.

Founded in 2010, WeWork is now in 99 cities and 26 countries, serving 400,000 members across 400 locations globally. Originally focused on supporting start-ups, freelancers, and small businesses, enterprises now comprise more than 30% of WeWork's members.
WeWork's mission is to create a world where people make a life, not just a living, and it focuses on shaping the future of work, including making culture a priority - for itself and for its members. Recognizing that culture essentially is an output, WeWork developed a "Culture Operating System" or "cultureOS' to identify the inputs that most profoundly shape culture.
This session will share an overview of WeWork's business, describe some of the key trends shaping the future of work, and explore how a more modern approach to the workplace can help companies evolve their cultures and make their employees more fulfilled.

The Skills Quotient: A Formula for Closing the Skills Gap from Within
Tuesday, April 9, 2:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
There isn’t a CEO in the world today who can answer for the skills of their organization. Just as Net Promoter Score (NPS) gave a common framework for customer satisfaction, leaders have long needed that type of solution for skills. That is what Skills Quotient (SQ) does; it introduces a common non-proprietary framework that every company can use to compare the job skills required to the skills possessed by individuals and teams across the entire company. It elevates the practice of talent and skills measurement from the middle of the organization to the C-Suite, giving every CEO a way to confirm the skills within their organization.

How HR Can Lift Teams Out of Risk-Averse Traps at Culture-Shaping Moments of Truth
Behavioral economics identifies 12 risk-averse traps - which shut down bold inventive thinking and are inevitable in Volatile Uncertain Complex Adverse (VUCA) conditions. HR is in a unique position to lift teams out of these risk-averse traps - if we approach culture-building like strength and conditioning coaches rather than bystanders or enablers.
In this interactive fun Innovation Lab, you'll learn to diagnose risk-averse traps in the moment. You'll learn 5 proven validated courage-building steps to lift teams out of risk-averse traps and unlock their inventive potential. You'll see how diverse teams - with courage to challenge each other's hegemony - consistently outperform teams with a strong uniform culture fit and the blind spots that come when everyone sees things the same way. You'll learn how to build the EQ that makes creative abrasion and ever-changing hegemony a performance-enhancer - one meeting, email exchange, performance management review or telecon at a time.
