Today, more than ever, we need moments of human connection. They span ideologies, spark collaboration, spawn innovations and even stave off diseases. But these moments – once prevalent - are becoming an endangered species. Perhaps you want them to flourish. Must you wait for the stars to align or can connection be created?

When you experience a moment of powerful human connection, it feels like magic - not science. But learn the science behind connection, and you see that these powerful moments don’t have to be wished or waited for R...

MEMBERSHIP AREA: Toronto
VENUE: The National Club (Live) Webcast to Your Home/Office
DESCRIPTION:Culture and the competition for talent

Bryan Pearson, CEO and President, LoyaltyOne Co.

In the digital economy, people with proven technology-based skills can pretty well write their own tickets. But what about the companies hoping to attract that top talent? Competition is stiff – especially in an innovation hub like Toronto. On the one hand are startups offering high-energy environments and the potential for big payoffs down the road. On the other are well-heeled players like banks and consulting firms that can give generous packages to new hires (though that still doesn’t guarantee they won’t soon get restless and move on). And in between, smart companies are deploying reasonable but finite resources as they build the best possible teams.

For Bryan Pearson, President and CEO of LoyaltyOne, there’s a far more powerful lever than simple compensation for attracting and retaining talent: the appea...

THE NEUROSCIENCE OF INNOVATION
January 23, 2019
Calgary
DATE:January 23, 2019
TIME:7:30 AM to 9:00 AM
MEMBERSHIP AREA: Calgary
VENUE: Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada (PTAC)
DESCRIPTION:

One thing we all have going on right now is some level of change. Environmentally, professionally and personally. Change is all around. It’s stressful, and sometimes, it’s terrifying. The bad news: change wipes out productivity and constrains new thinking. Even more bad news is that change is here to stay.

There is good news though! Neuroscientists now know how change affects our brain and what our brains need in order to embrace it. Clever companies are using this research to help people thrive during change and help leaders create a climate of high innovation. More good news is that change astuteness is a critical skillset that leaders can learn and apply.

It’s all about creating a climate that make people feel safe enough to fully and openly engage in it. It’s what Google discovered its highest performing leaders were doing exceptionally well: creating what Harvard’s Dr. Amy Edmondson calls ‘psychological safetyR...

WHAT DO CULTURE DYNAMICS HAVE TO DO WITH BUSINESS METRICS?
February 12, 2019
Toronto
DATE:February 12, 2019
TIME:7:30 AM to 9:30 AM
MEMBERSHIP AREA: Toronto
VENUE: The Albany Club or webcast to your home/office
DESCRIPTION:

We've all heard that "culture eats strategy for breakfast". But why? Leaders today are aware that culture strongly influences how people think, feel, and act in their efforts to support their organization's success. The problem is that they use methods that just describe their unique culture type without linking those descriptions to tangible performance metrics such as revenue growth.

Now, leaders need to augment "descriptive" measures with "ability" measures, which quantitatively assess their organization's change "readiness" and capability to shift its culture in adaptive and proactive ways.

This session will highlight a compelling comparison of results using pre and post measures of The Foray Group currently in the middle of organizational transformation. The analysis will demonstrate how the organization leveraged a new organizational development tool called the OGI (Organizational Growth Indicator) to measure and evaluate its efforts.
