Three Forces Reshaping the Future of Work

Presented by: Ultimate Software — Senior Director of HCM Innovation, Dr. Jarik Conrad

Companies are struggling to respond to the rapid pace of change and the associated effects on their employees. More than ever, people want a more personal, human work experience. Three pivotal forces are converging that will transform the near-term future of work. First, advances in artificial intelligence reach beyond the automation of tasks, to help leaders understand their people in new and deeply human ways—augmenting and amplifying their natural capabilities. In addition, today’s employees crave connection and purpose with an environment that fosters their progress and nurtures their growth—rejecting one-size-fits-all management in favor of individualized leadership. Finally, breakthrough Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion creates a workforce culture in which all people can feel they belong and be themselves—where unique perspectives foster greater innovation, sustainability, and cultural competence. Doing so ensures work works for everyone.

How to Keep Your Head When Your Hair Is on Fire! An introduction to Emotional Intelligence

Presented by: SkyeTeam — Chief Executive Officer, Morag Barrett

Have you ever been in a conversation that started to “heat up” and later you thought, “Why didn’t I do this?” or, “Why didn’t I say that?” When confronted with stressful situations, our inherent tendency is to do more of the same—only harder—and to react blindly. There is science behind our reactions, and better understanding that science allows us to leverage our emotions rather than stifle them. In this presentation, you’ll learn what drives our emotions and “fight or flight” response; the business impact of toxic behaviors and inappropriate reactions in the workplace; and strategies for remaining at your best, even in the worst of circumstances.
