      Understanding and Improving Organizational Culture
      “Culture eats strategy for breakfast,” organizational leadership guru Peter Drucker famously said, and those words continue to serve as a reminder to associations. Your organization’s best-laid plans, ambitious goals, and new initiatives will often flounder if they do not align with your culture. Learn what organizational culture is, explore different styles, and examine what healthy organizations do differently. Consider where your organization may be falling short and and how you might integrate new approaches to cultivate a healthier organizational culture.

      2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

      Leverage Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for Greater Impact
      Advancing your diversity, equity, and inclusion practices will result in an organization that makes a greater impact because all employees feel valued, included, and empowered to succeed. Join this session to gain a deeper understanding of how strengthening these practices will yield a more committed and productive workforce and a more successful association.

      Thursday, June 11, 2020
      2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

      The Limits of Visionary Leadership
      Long-held tenets of leadership are no longer effective in our increasingly fast-paced, global world. Many leaders unknowingly reward behaviors that curtail strategic thinking and dismiss creative ideas. A new approach to leadership---one tht replaces the traditional concept of visionary leadership with a style that promotes collaboration and innovation---increases effectiveness, opens new revenue streams, and leads to long-term success. Examine real-life case studies from organizations that embrace this approach and walk away with techniques to implement at your association.

      Friday, June 12, 2020
      2:00 – 3:00 p.m.

      The Intersection of Space and Culture
      More and more associations are discovering the impact that office space and design can have on organizational culture. Some associations have completed major relocations to facilitate a change in direction or to reorient employees toward a new way of working together. Others are implementing new workplace initiatives in existing spaces to better support their values, brand, people, and future work. Learn how the design of a workplace can foster improved social interaction, collaboration, and community and help achieve business goals.
