Pre-Conference Workshops

Men as Allies: In this session, men explore the valuable role they play in helping women advance in leadership. Participants will brainstorm ways they can help women advance their careers by both partnering with women as their allies and by being change agents to foster a more gender-inclusive workplace culture.

Actionable Data. Smart Talent Bets. Learn to Leverage the Global Leadership Forecast: Learn from your peers–in the room and from 2,400+ global companies in DDI's largest-ever study–through an interactive, deep-dive into the leadership megatrends revealed in the Global Leadership Forecast 2018. Create a data-driven roadmap for accelerating and building the business case for leader growth that you can implement tomorrow. Use innovative approaches about current topics like digital skills, high-potentials, gender and generational diversity, coaching, performance management, teams, personalized learning, and more to become the data hero at your organization.

Don't Look Back: Preparing Executives to Lead for the Future: No executive or CEO can ever be fully ready for the complex challenges that emerge at the top. Surprise is always waiting. This session will illustrate how the most successful organizations prepare for the unknown by creating environments of constant growth, starting at the top, fueled by targeted benchmarking and engaging experiences. If you are responsible for ensuring senior leadership readiness, this session will demonstrate how you can bring the future to life and prepare your executives to lead the transformations your business needs. 

Unleash the Full Potential of Your Organization with Focus and Action: From managing the present to preparing for the future. From leaders who reinforce a culture of hierarchy and control to leaders who embrace empowerment and innovation. What critical transitions does your organization need to make to flourish in this rapidly changing business landscape? In this highly interactive session, you will work with peers and DDI experts to explore critical transitions that can drive future success for your organization, your leaders, and HR. You will 'crowd source' practical ideas and approaches to move your organization from its current state to a future state that unleashes the full potential of your people and your organization. This is your chance to shape your organization's future success. 

Learning Journeys: Better for Your Business...Better for Your Leaders: How do you decide among the vast, and often confusing, array of learning methods and approaches for leaders, while responding to the pressure from the business to develop the right skills, right now? We know that one-off, one-time learning events don't benefit the business and they don't benefit the learners. Learning Journeys, on the other hand, offer a strategic approach, anchored in business strategy, that deepens leaders' knowledge, skills, and experiences. Learn about best practices and real client examples of organizations who have successfully implemented learning journeys. Then roll-up your sleeves, and with your peers, get hands-on experience designing a learning journey for your frontline or mid-level leaders. 

Advanced Facilitator Training: Have you ever wondered what separates great facilitators from good facilitators? In this session, you will discover the three critical roles every facilitator must play to be great, as well as a concrete list of individual skills and abilities that sets them apart. This session is recommended for those already certified as a DDI facilitator.
