Care and Accountability: To each other, to the business, to the customers
When we perceive that care is in opposition to accountability, or something to be balanced, it can be challenging to do either. When we are accountable to people and the business, we demonstrate care for each other. While we often hear the phrase “we must hold people accountable,” this is often a sign that we haven’t created the right environment in which people are inspired to take ownership. In this workshop, participants are challenged to discuss what it means to be accountable to ourselves (do what we say), accountable to each other (do what we agree to), accountable to the business (do what needs to be done), accountable to our people (do the work of leadership), and accountable to the customer (do what they expect).
Truly Human Leadership – Bob Chapman
Recently named the #3 CEO in the world by Inc. magazine, Bob Chapman is intentional about using his platform as a business leader to build a better world. He dreams of a world in which people leave work each day fulfilled by their work, rather than drained by it. As Chairman and CEO of $3 billion capital equipment and engineering solutions firm Barry-Wehmiller, a combination of 104 acquisitions, Chapman has championed meaningful work and caring work environments through, what he calls, Truly Human Leadership. This leadership philosophy, and the transformation it brought about at Barry-Wehmiller, were the inspiration behind his Wall Street Journal bestseller Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring for Your People Like Family. Chapman will challenge traditional thinking about how to run a business and how to be an effective leader. He’ll offer simple, yet groundbreaking ideas on how to create meaningful work environments grounded in people-centric leadership. “Everyone shows up at Barry‐Wehmiller dedicated to a cause greater than themselves. Bob is one of the most capable and gifted CEOs in the country,” Simon Sinek. For more information, Bob Chapman blogs at TrulyHumanLeadership.com.

The Power of Candor: How Receiving and Giving Feedback Fuels Human Performance
If you want people on your team to do more, do better, do different – in other words, change – create the environment in which your feedback can be received. Delivering feedback at the intersection of caring personally and challenging directly increases receptivity and trust. Attendees will leave the session with a completed feedback message that follows an easily replicated formula. Optional candor assessment available that informs the extent your team is telling the truth and having open and honest conversations.
Build High-Performing Teams
High-performing teams thrive in an environment that is increasingly globalized, faster, and more uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. They accomplish what other teams find impossible even in the toughest of times. What makes this possible is encouraging and building trust. These teams have reduced turnover, higher engagement, greater innovation, and increased fulfillment. While inspiration can get people to take the first step and follow in the calm, trust allows people to weather the storm. Learn the simple behaviors that result in the belief of trust among team members.
