    Primary event:  5 Surprising Sources of Negativity in Change, and How to Turn Them Around

    Linda Hoopes, President of Resilience Alliance, is on a mission to bring more positivity into the tools and practices of organizational change. In 25+ years of work in the field, she has identified a strong and unconscious bias to frame much of what we do in negative terms: gaps, risks, failure rates, resistance, etc. While this perspective can be valuable, she believes that power, energy and competitive advantage come from consciously incorporating a more positive point of view. In this webinar, she will highlight five specific, practical ways to add positivity to your work.

    Speaker's Bio: 

    Linda Hoopes is an author, speaker, and consultant who helps individuals, teams, and organizations learn to thrive in turbulence. She incorporates a wide range of perspectives in her work, including a Ph.D. in I/O Psychology, 15+ years working with change expert Daryl Conner, 20+ years of studying and writing about resilience, certification as a massage therapist, and her passions for travel, music, sailboat racing, and photography. One of her super powers is taking complex ideas and expressing them in elegant, practical ways. She is the author of two books including Prosilience: Building Your Resilience for a Turbulent World, which won the EPIC 2018 e-book award in the nonfiction category.

    Primary event: Beyond Leadership: What the Study of Individual Development Can Tell Us about Transforming Organizations

    For the last several years, CEOs have been reporting that organizational leaders’ ability to meet the challenges of the future is one of their biggest concerns they have for their business. From the field of psychology, theories of adult development are contributing to our understanding of how we can develop leaders capable of meeting these challenges. In some organizations, this theory is guiding initial efforts at transforming the approach to leadership development. However, there are still significant challenges to redefining the way we develop organizational leaders with these vertical theories. Through the presentation of original research, this session will highlight the key factors determining whether organizations are prepared implement vertical leadership development. The conclusion of the session will consider how the field of organizational development can integrate learnings from vertical development to support the system-level changes needed to transform the way we develop leaders.

    Description: What Constitutes a Conflict Intelligent Organization?

    Primary event: What Constitutes a Conflict Intelligent Organization?

    Inevitable as it is, interpersonal and team conflict in workplaces is generally not viewed as an opportunity for growth and development of the organization or its staff. Rather, ill-managed conflict or avoiding the signals it raises can result in costly problems due to attrition, stress and medical leaves, reduced productivity, low morale and even loss of reputation.

    On April 17, 2019 please join conflict specialist Cinnie Noble, who will share her expertise about the opportunities to be gained from facing conflict head on. She will discuss what constitutes a conflict intelligent organization and what the ingredients are for building one.

    Bio of the speaker:

    Cinnie Noble is a former social worker and lawyer who entered the world of Alternative Dispute Resolution in the 90’s. She is a certified mediator and coach (PCC) and is a pioneer of the CINERGY® model of conflict management coaching. Cinnie coaches and trains her model worldwide and is passionate about helping people find their way through conflict and training others to do so.

    Cinnie is the author of two coaching books – Conflict Mastery: Questions to Guide You(https://www.cinergycoaching.com/conflict-mastery-questions-guide/) and Conflict Management Coaching:  The CINERGY™ Model (https://www.cinergycoaching.com/conflict-management-coaching-cinergy-model/). In 1991, Cinnie was appointed Member of the Order of Canada for her work in the travel industry for people with disabilities.
