Change is Good… You Go FirstThe pace of change is accelerating and is more complex. Change is occurring more frequently, and can become overwhelming. Today we all need new tools and rituals to help us not only survive, but thrive in this world of technology, innovation, and disruption. In her keynote program, Change is Good, Karen empowers you with three critical steps to lead and inspire change. She will debunk several myths around motivating change while sharing the missing links to growing a culture of change and modifying behavior. Whether your natural instinct is to embrace change or to run from it, this program is for you! You will leave with the tools to develop a “change mindset”. This will enable you to access new ways of communication, develop new skills, and make a shift in thinking. It’s time to get excited about change. Are you ready see the opportunities change presents?

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20
How to Lead and Succeed in a Multigenerational WorldIn today’s workplace as well as the marketplace, the days of “one size fits all” and “treat everyone the same” are gone. The environment has never been so diverse with five very different generations (Traditionalists. Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z) living and working side by side. Many of us are just trying to navigate a generational gap of 50+ years between our oldest and youngest employees and customers. In her keynote, How to Lead and Succeed in a Multigenerational World, Karen shares insights to help understand the diverse perspectives, motivations, and values of these five generations and how they are changing the dynamics at work and in our everyday lives. She will share actionable strategies to strengthen your own generational understanding and cross-generational relationships.
