WLC Breakout Sessions
In addition to our morning, luncheon, and afternoon keynote speakers, we invite you to attend two WLC Focus Sessions, where you can dive deeper into igniting areas of your personal and professional life.
Breakout Session A: Forging and Managing the Hybrid Workplace, with Alexandra Samuel
Many organizations are embracing the new hybrid model of work as a way to renew their organizational culture, fuel effective collaboration, and attract the most talented employees. But how do we foster that kind of culture in between off-sites and Zoom cocktails? How do we strengthen collaboration without back-to-back video calls? And how do we re-establish the office as a core part of our working rhythms, when so many employees are cozily remote? Alex's teachings help organizations navigate the transition to the hybrid workplace, and make the most of the combination of remote plus office.
Breakout Session B: Igniting Your Innovation and Understanding Your 'Onlyness', with Nilofer Merchant
We often make power about the individual – asking people to be bolder, braver or build a better brand. But that’s not it. We become powerful when ideas that are deeply personal to us are supported and advocated for by others. Power is not simply personal, it’s profoundly social. Finding your power – your Onlyness – is rooted in what matters most to you. When you socialize it, people who believe in it will want to see it realized. This is how your Onlyness is the key to create real change .
Breakout Session C: You’ve Got the Seat at the Table, Now What?, with Pirie Jones Grossman
Corporate women are conditioned to think that to keep their seat at the table, they have to show up like the men in the room. However, women’s brains have unique natural heightened abilities in incredible leadership strengths such as intuition, community building, collaborating vs competing, and creative innovation. Learn how to draw out and empower your natural leadership instincts as women to ensure they create the change, positive impact, and legacy in the companies you serve.
Breakout Session D: The Power of Inclusive Leadership, with Juliet Hall
Understand the power of inclusive leadership and learn about microaggressions, unconscious bias, and understanding human needs to help leaders transform internal culture and build a strong foundation of leadership.
