Disordered Personalities: Mitigating Conflict with Emotional Intelligence
The dissonance between our identity and reputation can create immense internal stress, leading to misunderstanding, frustration, and burnout. This intrapersonal conflict often bleeds into our work relations. Critical to mitigating personal and organizational conflict is the development and integration of emotional intelligence. This integrative workshop will explore the dimensions of personality and how they can create organizational friction and ultimately sabotage careers. The five elements of emotional intelligence will be presented as foundational for managing emotional reactivity.

Emotional Safety - Maximizing Human Capacity & Creativity
Organizations wish for the full creative capacity from their people. At Oshkosh Defense, we have been on this journey of cultural transformation from a fear-based to a creative-capacity based culture for the last 4 years.  We have recognized and struggled through the inhibitors of creativity and innovation.  We are closer now to the other side. In this workshop, we will look at the environmental dynamics in place that inhibit and enhance human capacity and creativity. This workshop is for everyone who works in an organization that asks their people for their full capability.  We will talk about and demonstrate emotional safety.

Gritty Women Rising: Positive Interventions for Aspiring Women Leaders
This workshop proposes two positive interventions to contribute to the leader development for aspiring women leaders – psychological capital (PsyCap) and positive politics. PsyCap is a mental resource made up of hope, self-efficacy, optimism, and resilience that can help women experience growth through adversity and proactively take ownership of their development and success. The positive politics perspective emphasizes the many benefits of empowerment through political activity and strategies for engaging effectively, authentically, and with integrity.

The Key to Creating a Purpose-driven and Agile Organization
Sustained organizational success requires that organizations be purpose-driven and agile. Unfortunately, most organizational leaders feel like their organizations can be more purpose-driven and agile. Further, most leaders feel like their attempts to make their organization more purpose-driven and agile fall flat. This is because most organizational leaders overlook a key and foundational factor that drives these traits: mindsets. In this workshop, Ryan Gottfredson will introduce participants to mindsets and the power they have in driving purpose and agility at both the employee- and organizational-levels. Further, Ryan will give participants a tool to assess leaders' and employees' mindsets, allowing for the acceleration of both purpose and agility.

Panel Presentation: Benefits of Hiring Individuals with Disabilities & other Barriers
The value of hiring people with disabilities and other barriers is more than “just doing what is right”. It’s not just good for the community but it’s good for business. In fact, you may discover that hiring people with disabilities and other barriers is a solution to your high turnover, the need to increase retention, improve prodictivity and attendance. Moreover, it provides a greater diversity at the work site so that a wide variety of perspectives are utilized when problem solving, builds community relationships, and builds the morale of your entire workforce. Experienced practitioners from several companies share the value of hiring people with disabilities and other barriers.

How Commemorating Mendez v. Westminster is Rejuvenating the Orange County Department of Education and the City of Westminster
Organizations are often absorbed in the urgent matters and internal conflicts of the present.  The immediate challenges and crises can obscure the animating stories that are at the heart of their mission.  Over the past three years, the City of Westminster and the Orange County Department of Education (OCDE) have been remembering and embracing a core story that shaped the history of both the city and the department: the case of Mendez, et al, v. Westminster, et al (1947). In this session, leaders from Westminster and OCDE reflect on the ways in which remembering that story (in the form of collaborative work on a Mendez Freedom Trail and Tribute Monument) is rejuvenating both the city and the department. Lessons will be shared on how remembering core stories, even stories that include organizational failures, can help organizations and communities revitalize their mission.

Crisis Leadership: Attributes that Matter
Every organization is prone to crisis. Research states that 50% of organizational crisis occur due to action or inaction by leaders. Yet, leading before, during, and post-crisis is left out of leadership education and lacks extensive empirical research. Crisis managers understand how to manage the crisis event.  However, the goal of effective crisis leaders is two-fold: 1. identify and avert the looming crisis, and 2. if averting the crisis is not possible, then lead in such a way that business recovery means the organization emerges stronger, healthier and more resilient than pre-crisis.  This session will simulate all five stages of crisis management and engage the participants in various roles within an organization and their responsibility in averting managing, and recovery of crisis.
