PROGRAM INFORMATION


Customer Journey Mapping: How to Gain Deep Insights to Shift Human Choices
Presenter: Scott Wayne
 This program has been approved for 1.5 HR (Business) HRCI recertification credits and has been approved for 1.5 SHRM recertification credits.

There’s a difference between observing animals in a zoo versus in the wild. Humans are no different.

As corporations excitedly issue press releases about their latest innovation labs, opinion measurement apps, or upscale focus group environments, it can be easy to forget that the only place to generate true insights into customer decision makers is to be in market, observing and questioning humans as they make those choices.

This talk breaks down each step to mapping a customer experience - from gaining access to a marketplace, creating an environment in which they’ll openly share their thoughts and feelings, to the way to ask questions that dig to root-cause of decision-making.

We teach the audience how to build a detailed customer journey map. And how to build interventions in that decision chain in order to switch customer choices to the benefit of your company or organization.

Scattered throughout this talk are Interactive exercises drawing from recent case studies.


Embrace Your Intuitive Leadership to Boost Your Bottom-Line Impact
Presenter: Queirra Fenderson, PCC
 This program has been approved for 1.0 HR (General) HRCI recertification credits and 1.0 SHRM recertification credits.

What if you could calm workplace drama, reduce over-thinking and increase bottom-line results, all from embracing one radical idea? The idea that empowering your employees to trust their gut is just as important as data-driven decisions. In this keynote, Queirra Fenderson, PCC from The Ambition Studio will clarify what intuitive leadership is (and is not) to end self-doubt and stop analysis paralysis in its tracks as a leader and team member.


Navigating Polarities: Learning How to Embrace Both/And Thinking in Your HR Practice
Presenter: Kelly Lewis, PCC
 This program has been approved for 1.25 HR (General) HRCI recertification credits and 1.25 SHRM recertification credits.

In this interactive session, Kelly Lewis of Lewis Leadership Group, will introduce us to the Polarity Navigator, a sense-making tool designed to help leaders, teams, and organizations differentiate and then reintegrate the two interdependent states of a polarity while also making space to explore the vulnerability needed to navigate the contradiction. We will walk away with the six key leadership and organizational polarities consistently mentioned by experts as being essential to success and a practical tool to help their clients and organizations navigate them more effectively.

Presenter: Theodora Stringham, Principal Attorney, Offit│Kurman® Attorneys At Law
