CONFERENCE AGENDA

7:30 – 12.00 AM

Registration and Networking Breakfast

The current economic, social and political landscape brings unprecedented challenges for the social sector. But times of change also offer opportunities to reflect and grow as a leader. Clarity around what you value, what you want to achieve, and ultimately, who you want to become will help you find more meaning in your work, and help others do the same.
Who do you need to become to lead authentically and thrive in times of change? Rosetta’s powerful keynote walks you through a 4-step process that guides you in rediscovering your purpose and transforming the way you work, lead and live your life. She’ll challenge you to think about how you pick yourself up when you get knocked down and how to navigate uncertainty without losing sight of what matters most to you.

Some employees thrive in times of change, while others are fearful. Fears often trigger anxiety, resistance and a range of unproductive behaviors. Managers need to understand the change process, so they can lead their teams through uncertain and often confusing times.
Research shows that most change efforts fail to achieve their desired results. In this session, you’ll:

Your people bring your mission to life. But has your organization defined a talent philosophy? Do your employees know what to expect when it comes to advancing at your organization? A talent philosophy articulates where you want to go and what you want to be known for when it comes to your employees. It communicates an organization’s core beliefs about your people and talent-related priorities, as well as the investments and trade-offs an organization is willing to make to live out these beliefs.
Learn how to integrate your talent management with your organization’s strategy, cultural beliefs, and mindset, and why doing so will give you an important competitive advantage in attracting and retaining the right team.

Afternoon Sessions

What does our sector need from tomorrow’s nonprofit leader? How can we begin developing the leadership competencies today that will help us navigate what’s around the corner?
While our future challenges may be unknown, they will likely require social sector leaders who can navigate complex systems and innovate to engage increasingly diverse communities. This session rests on the assumption that everyone has the capacity to lead. Explore how a socially conscious, authentic, strength-based, and servant model of leadership holds the promise of transforming people and organizations. Use this model of the future of leadership to develop the next generation of leaders in your organization.

Your workplace culture is the way people relate to one another and get work done in your organization. Organizational Core Values serve as the guiding principles for that behavior within your culture. When well defined and well executed, Core Values showcase what’s best about your organization’s culture, provide a framework for decision making, and lead to unity across your organization by bringing people together to drive your mission forward.
Many social sector organizations lack clearly defined organizational Core Values, and many others have them on a piece of paper buried deep within a filing cabinet. In this session, you will learn strategies for unlocking the potential of your culture through defined and lived Core Values.
