|VIRTUAL WEBINAR: Humanocracy: Resilient Organization, Great Jobs, Zero Bureaucracy||7||4||2021||12 p.m.||1||3||Virtual||
Did you know that a scant fifteen percent of employees around the world are highly engaged in their work? Or that only one in five employees believe their opinions matter at work? We can change this...We need flat, fast, and open organizations that reward entrepreneurship and out-run change; that is a source of meaning and connection for employees and other stakeholders. The good news is that you don’t have to be the CEO to dismantle bureaucracy. Anyone can take the lead in building an organization that’s fit for human beings and fit for the future. Drawing from decades of research and their new WSJ Bestselling Book, Humanocracy, influential and iconoclastic business thinkers Gary Hamel and Michele Zanini will show you how to find the courage to challenge the status quo, how to rid yourself of bureaucratic habits and beliefs, and what you can learn from organizations that have made the jump to “humanocracy."

|VIRTUAL WEBINAR: Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace||21||4||2021||12 p.m.||1||3||Virtual||
Do you know what the key to advancing gender equality is? It’s men. Women are at a disadvantage. At home, they often face an unequal division of household chores and childcare. In the workplace, they deal with lower pay, lack of credit for their contributions, roadblocks to a promotion, sexual harassment, and more. Gender-in-the-workplace experts and co-authors David Smith and Brad Johnson make the business case for male engagement in gender equality while integrating why it is suitable for both men and women. Using social science evidence, they explore the possible challenges of cross-gender professional relationships. Together, in this deep-dive webinar, they will provide the “how-to” for men, women, and organizational leaders who want to be intentional, inclusive, and excellent allies, leveraging mentorship, sponsorship, and workplace partnership to create a more diverse workforce.

|VIRTUAL WEBINAR: Trust Yourself: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work||6||5||2021||12 p.m.||1||3||Virtual||
Have you been told that you take criticism too personally? Do you judge yourself too harshly? We are taught to hide our emotions for fear of being perceived as “unprofessional.” But the truth is that the traits associated with highly sensitive individuals—empathy, self-awareness, critical thinking, communication, and intuition—are the “soft skills” that will be the most valuable in the workplace of the future. In this deep-dive webinar, human behavior expert and executive coach Melody Wilding, LMSW, will draw on decades of research and offer neuroscience-based strategies that individuals and organizations can use to recognize sensitivity as a superpower, not a detriment. You will learn concrete steps to help what she calls “Sensitive Strivers” – empathetic, driven individuals—break free from stress, perfectionism, and self-doubt to use sensitivity as a strength, and work and lead effectively, now and in the future world of work.
