Opening General Session

The Click Moment: Seizing Opportunity in an Unpredictable World

Success, we're told, is the outcome of careful planning, analysis, and strategy. But the truth is, success is far more random than we'd like to believe. In fact, in today's complex, volatile, and random world, the five-year business plan is obsolete, and going through the motions can no longer guarantee strong performance. If planning is out the window, what do you have? According to Frans Johansson, look for "Click Moments"-rare opportunities, often serendipitous, to change course. This morning's speaker will discuss how to spot "Click Moments" and increase their occurrence in our lives, how to place lots of high-potential bets, and how to harness the complex forces that follow into a winning strategy.

General Session

From Forecasting to Superforecasting

The important decisions we make are informed by judgments about how the future will unfold. Sometimes experts help, and sometimes we decide on our own. Either way, these judgments are forecasts. If they are good, our decisions are likely to be good. And if they are bad ... we're in trouble. In this provocative presentation, based on his New York Times bestseller, Dan Gardner explores the style of thinking most likely to deliver accurate forecasts. With effort and practice, we can all become better forecasters. Some of us may even become superforecasters.

Closing General Session

Creating Cultures of Leadership and the Power of 'Lollipop Moments'

By making leadership into something bigger than ourselves, we fail to acknowledge the everyday leadership that affects us in innumerable ways, according to Drew Dudley. We need to redefine leadership as being a series of "lollipop moments"-those moments when something you've done has made someone else's life fundamentally better. Hear practical insights on how succcessfull leaders create cultures of leadership in their own lives and within their organizations. This presentation whll make you laugh, think, and reconsider the way you evaluate leadership in your life and workplace.
