We have built out four different tracks to help attendees become proficient in strategies for designing, hiring, and inspiring high-performing teams, and capitalizing on people data to maximize productivity.
Many companies cobble together employees without considering team dynamics, and they appoint leaders who might be excellent individual contributors but who lack the self-awareness and/or motivation needed to effectively inspire employees. When teams and leaders are designed ad hoc like this, results suffer. But when the design of the organization, its leadership, its team dynamics, and its culture are approached intentionally and strategically—supported by people data—companies have a much better chance of achieving their desired business objectives.

Hiring is a critical activity in any organization regardless of its size, industry, or state of maturity. The ability to hire well sets the stage for future organizational success. Putting the right person in the right role also contributes to others’ confidence in the organization’s overall effectiveness; top performers prefer to work with other top performers. By contrast, a mishire can have devastating consequences not just on the organization’s business results but also on the engagement and welfare of other employees.

In most organizations, employees lack the necessary people data insights to work together at their best. Without that data, employees don’t have critical awareness regarding their workplace behaviors. This means they inadvertently create communication problems, conflict, and even organizational toxicity. Using a talent optimization approach, employees are given the data and insights they need to manage themselves—and their relationships with others in the organization.
