Speaking Topics

INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP:

BUILDING A TECHNOLOGY-ENABLED CULTURE

As technology theorist Dr Melvin Kranzberg put it ‘Technology is neither inherently good nor bad; nor is it neutral’.

The digital era requires intelligent leadership and intentionality around technology adoption. Empower your people to leverage technology as a force for good within their work lives and their personal lives. The pervasion of technology into every aspect of our world has economic, social, and human consequences that ripple far beyond any device or practice. In a presentation focused on making the all-too-often technical, accessible and practical, we’ll break open tech-adoption strategies to enable a culture of trust, engagement and high performance. 

Topics:

  • Leadership and influence 
  • Change is inevitable but growth is intentional
  • The new trust landscape

Keynote takeaways:

  • A roadmap for intelligent leadership
  • A framework for people-centric technology-adoption
  • Positioning plan for change ahead of change

AUG-MENTALITY:

PREPARING PEOPLE FOR AUGMENTED WORKING ENVIRONMENTS 

Adaptability is the critical currency of a digital age – how malleable is your mindset? How capable are you of unlearning, learning and relearning? How seamlessly can you interface with technology, diverse mindsets, or a blended workforce? As a leader, can you guide your people confidently through such transformations?

Over the next ten years, the adoption of automation and AI technologies will transform the workplace as human capital and capabilities are augmented through increasing interaction with ever-smarter machines.

Allow Holly to take you through an expanded understanding of augmentation and its potential to unlock higher productivity, GDP growth, improved corporate performance, and new prosperity – for those who successfully harness an ‘aug-mentality’. Build your toolkit and pack your bags for a growth journey.

Topics:

  • Optimising augmentation in the workplace
  • Pillars of peak performance
  • How technology is changing our neurology

Keynote takeaways:

  • Training tools for the agile mind 
  • People strategies for augmentation
  • A pathway to GDP growth and improved corporate performance

 

 

COGNITIVE DIVERSITY:

UNLOCKING THE VALUE OF DIFFERENCE 

A combination of digitalization, globalization, an engaged aging workforce and the arrival of Gen Z are dramatically challenging diversity frontiers, as well as the expectations placed on leaders to define, target and measure diversity.

Take a look around your decision-making table, and what’s more, listen in. If you want to harness the true value of difference in terms of skills, life experience, perspectives or information processing styles, a revolution in leadership is needed. Research shows that in new, uncertain and complex environments, cognitively diverse teams will better scope, and cope, for competitive success. 

Upskill for the ‘human skills’ of active listening, self-awareness, understanding conflict, strategic divergence and emotional intelligence. It’s time to explore­ diversity and inclusion 2.0.

Topics:

  • Diversity and Inclusion 2.0 
  • Intergenerational Teams
  • Creating Psychological Safety

Keynote takeaways:

  • New World Leadership Skills Toolkit
  • Cognitive Diversity Mapping
  • Key Behaviours for Enabling Inclusion
