The Changing Workplace: Are You Ready?How are you incorporating social media into your workplace? Is your workplace attracting or repelling the next generation of workers? Are you engaging and retaining frontline team members through effective employer brand management? Are you living your brand from the inside out? Do you lead with What or even How and miss the energizing power of Why? Are you breaking down silos to unleash positive power? Is career development fostering engagement?

Do most people in your team or across your organization Lead, Follow, or Wallow? How are you lessening the impact of mental health and addiction issues affecting 20% of our workforce? What are the keys to sustaining wellness programs? How do leading organizations build thriving workplaces? Can you build exceptional workplaces on a limited budget? Why aren’t you investing as much time leading as you’d like to?

Our workplaces are dramatically changing. These are some of the critical questions leaders must address to be victors rather than victims of these seismic shifts.

The Changing Workplace: Are You Ready?These are also some of the issues covered at The Changing Workplace: Are You Ready? on April 18 at the beautiful Royal York Hotel in Toronto. I am delighted to partner with Your WorkPlace founder and president, Vera Asanin, at this high impact session. She’s assembled a stellar line up of top experts and panelists from award-winning companies. As conference leader, I’ll be opening and closing the Conference while connecting the critical leadership dots throughout the day. We’re putting the finishing touches on an action-packed agenda that will interweave TEDx-style short, value-packed presentations, videos, and discussions with focused networking and application opportunities. You’ll leave with a rich assortment of best practices, solutions, and inspiration.

I am especially excited to hear Simon Sinek’s luncheon keynote “Start with Why.” This is the title of his bestselling book, Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action, that followed his TEDx, “Talk about Why.” It’s one of their top twenty most viewed. Simon’s inspiring keynote will get to the very heart of leadership. Strong leaders connect everyone with the power of purpose. This builds the foundation of a thriving workplace.

If you don’t live in the Toronto area, this is a great time of year to visit. You can even catch a Blue Jays game while you’re in town! You can guess who’s a fan …

If you’re not able to make it, I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences on your changing workplace. What are you doing to get ready? Which of the opening questions are the most critical to your workplace? What are you doing to respond?
