A Practical Guide to the Evolution of Leadership

Sundar Ananthasivan, Wausau Window and Wall Systems

Design, engineering, and manufacturing organizations are filled with value stream leaders, managers, directors and vice presidents across various functions. These are all individuals at different leadership levels working through metrics and processes to achieve various business targets. How do you, as an individual, know if you are making a difference in your team? How do you gauge if you are having an impact on developing the next level leader? How do the various metrics and targets being tracked amount to a greater purpose for your self and the organization you are in? This session aims to get you thinking and provide a practical insight into how leadership has evolved over the last decade. We'll look at the data available and how the process around streamlining efforts driven by metrics may cause purpose and potential to be mismatched.

Management Still Matters

James Rodgers J.O. Rodgers and Associates

Managing people is both a strategy and performance capability. Properly executed, effective management can add tangibly to team performance. Done poorly, management can contribute to lower performance. Technology alone can never be a winning or sustainable proposition for any enterprise. Unfortunately, too many technology-focused companies fail to realize the full benefit of their investment in people. Based on current research, there are simple and effective methods available that can help any frontline manager realize the promise of a talented, diverse team. As one writer put it, "if people are not more productive working for you than not, you need to get out of managing. You're in the way!"

The Code of Curiosity: Turn Unconscious Bias into Conscious Inclusion

UB Ciminieri, Breaking the Bias; Joe Thurman, Breaking the Bias; and Nina Baliga, Breaking the Bias

"The Code of Curiosity" begins a journey of awareness of our own biases. This session will create a safe and vulnerable environment for all of us to begin to explore the influences that have formed our biases. It will help us develop clarity and vulnerability to explore what triggers us, and what causes us to express our biases in positive and negative ways. And it will give us hope through knowledge because we are all biased, we are not broken, and we are just human. Finding that common ground gives us all a starting point to work together to be more curious and to build more inclusive workplaces. With this awareness, we can approach our roles with more curiosity to improve outcomes in interviewing, sales and product development for example.

Agenda is subject to change.
