Strategy Execution: Tactics, Tips and Technology
The weight of strategy execution is a significant weight to carry!  Strategic initiatives often get brushed aside for day-to-day demands.  The plan’s clarity, purpose can decrease over time as can excitement levels for the initiatives.  Successful execution is a legitimate challenge.  But there are principles that help drive strategy execution.  When these fundamentals are practiced and internalized by an organization, strategy execution takes on a positive life of its own.  In this session, we’ll explore solutions to strategy execution challenges and implementation best practices.

Keynote: Workplace Cohesion
With only 40% of the global workforce committed to organizational success, Troy Hall, Ph.D., makes the case that the type of commitment leaders want from their employees requires cohesion, not engagement. With nearly 63% of an organization's employees actively searching for a new position, companies can no longer afford to settle for employee engagement based on a hunch. Cohesion occurs when people feel a sense of belonging, have value, and offer commitment. When cohesion is present, teams always perform. This level of cohesive performance supports the kind of engagement leaders want in their organizations.
