11:20am-11:50am What Now: Reimagining the Future through Purpose-Driven Inspiration

General Session
Today’s workforce faces more ambiguity and turbulence than ever before, and, as a result, we are left asking the question: what now? While it’s tempting to look back and long nostalgically for “what was,” one of the only things we know for certain at this point is that there is no going back, only forward to a “new normal.” This ambiguity can fuel fear and anxiety because the future “new normal,” and what will be, is uncertain. However, within that future unknown lies a great opportunity: we can be deliberate about shaping the future - creating not only a new normal, but a better normal. 
In this interactive virtual experience, Allison Holzer, co-author of the new book Dare to Inspire: Sustain the Fire of Inspiration in Work and Life will share a powerful framework of inspiration based on original research and will guide participants through imagining new possibilities and activating new confidence and courage within their current, and evolving, world of work. In order to navigate these challenges with resilience, agility and empathy, organizational leaders will need to uncover, redefine and activate a new purpose that inspires them and others around them. 
In this sesstion, you will learn: 
- How sustainable inspiration drives engagement and key employee performance and business outcomes, especially during times of change and ambiguity 
- To uncover, redefine and activate your purpose to balance wellbeing with performance and productivity 
- How to help leaders summon inspiration to lead organizational growth and engagement
