A 3 The Future Work Is Now: Inspiring Employees to Produce Topline Results

Day/Time:
Tuesday, November 07, 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm - Filled
Presenters: 
life sciences talent/technology leader, people advisory services
EY
Competency alignment: 
This workshop complements the following competencies as described in the HBA Leadership Competency Framework.
3. Exhibits business and industry acumen
8. Builds relationships and teams
Objectives: 

After participating in this session, you will be able to:

  • identify key trends affecting today’s workforce/marketplace.
  • discuss how these trends affect individuals, teams and organizations.
  • describe how purpose-driven leadership can improve workforce engagement by maximizing innovation and productivity. 
Audience: 

Those with 11-20 years of business/industry experience; individuals who seek to understand the latest trends affecting the workplace/marketplace and how to adapt in ways that will improve employee engagement.

Description: 
An unprecedented reinvention of work is here. Many employees want purpose and a paycheck. Members of high-performance teams seek a human connection, but may rarely, if ever, be in the same room with the full team. The largest generation of our time, the millennials, expect the office to offer the same digital experience they have at home and on their personal devices. And, all ages have cause for concern as white-collar and creative jobs–long considered immune to technological displacement–are being disrupted by technology like bots and artificial intelligence and the increasing pace of digitalization. This is the new normal. Many companies are working aggressively to adapt. Is yours one of them?
 
Participants will discover how to translate these and other trends into a sound operational strategy for their organizations, turning disruption into differentiation in the marketplace. Handouts will include EY’s most current Megatrends guide and a bibliography of articles and video links.

A 4 The State of Healthcare Cyber Risk: What You Need to Know and How to Respond

executive director, Center for Corporate Governance
Drexel University, LeBow College of Business
chief information security office
Christiana Care Health System
Competency alignment: 
This workshop complements the following competencies as described in the HBA Leadership Competency Framework.
3. Exhibits business and industry acumen
Objectives: 

After participating in this session, you will be able to:

  • identify key security and privacy issues facing the healthcare infrastructure.
  • review how a cyber tabletop exercise is conducted and the type of information it provides.
  • describe how incident response preparedness can reduce risk and lower the impact of cyber events.
Audience: 

Senior/executive healthcare leaders, future board members and professionals with cyber risk management responsibility.             

Description: 
The healthcare industry has been a prime target for cyber criminals and nation states for the last several years. Protecting the confidentiality of healthcare data from these threats is just one of the challenges we face. The integrity and availability of these data are also critical considerations. As cyber-attacks continue to grow more sophisticated and widespread, this session is designed to provide practical takeaways and information attendees will be able to put to immediate use.
 
The workshop begins with a panel discussion about current cyber threats facing various healthcare industry segments and features a chief information security officer at a large regional medical system, an executive in charge of cyber security for medical devices at a global pharmaceutical company, and a governance expert who will address board and C-suite perspectives on cyber risk management. The second half of the session will be dedicated to a highly interactive cyber threat scenario with direct audience participation guiding the decision-making and affecting the outcome of the scenario. Just as in real-world cyber threat incidents, the panelists–who are responsible for defending against the cyber threats–are not fully in control as they face the consequences of the audience’s decisions.
 
Attendees will receive a healthcare cyber threat scenario workbook they can take back and use with their organizations.

C 2 You Don't Have To Command the Room: Professional Presence Strategies for Introverts

Day/Time:
Tuesday, November 07, 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm - Filled
Presenters: 
Competency alignment: 
This workshop complements the following competencies as described in the HBA Leadership Competency Framework.
4. Displays professional presence
Objectives: 

After participating in this session, you will be able to:

  • identify key attributes of presence that will work for you.
  • leverage your unique strengths as an introvert to increase your power and influence.
  • begin to stretch the boundaries of your comfort zone to ensure you have a voice in the room.
Audience: 

Those with 5-10 years of business/industry experience; individuals who seek to enhance their professional presence by leveraging the unique and different strengths associated with a more reserved style.

Description: 
Current advice about professional presence may not work as well for introverts as it does for extroverts. For reserved leaders, the idea of commanding the spotlight may be a nightmare. Even finding a way into large group conversations can be challenging. At the same time, displaying presence and achieving earned authority are keys to career growth; there is peril in being too quiet as that may lead to being misunderstood, undervalued or overlooked.
 
This interactive workshop is designed for anyone on the quieter side of the introvert-extrovert continuum. Presenters will share the latest research on the neuroscience of introversion and extroversion, conduct a quick in-workshop assessment and provide tools to leverage your unique strengths as a quiet leader, enabling you to work even more effectively with your outgoing colleagues. These skills will increase your ability to speak up, influence others, contribute to important decisions and add to the success of your organization. Participants will view video clips of senior leaders who describe themselves as quiet leaders and hear their secrets for success. A copy of “The Playbook for Professional Presence for Introverts” will be provided so these new strategies can be applied immediately and authentically as you return to your workplace.

C 3 Articulating Your Vision: Dare to Dream Big

Objectives: 

After participating in this session, you will be able to:

  • create a clear, crisp, concise personal vision statement.
  • leverage the power of personal values and goals to provide future direction.
  • communicate your vision passionately, purposefully and persuasively.
Audience: 

Those with 11-20 years of business/industry experience; individuals to understand the value of creating a personal or corporate vision for the future.

Description: 
You’re at the top of your game–experienced, respected and influential among your peers. Where do you go from here? Dare to dream big as you learn five simple steps to shape a personal vision statement that paints a picture of your future. Unlike a mission statement that focuses on the present, your vision statement helps you identify what you stand for, what’s important to you and why others should follow your lead. Far more than a sales pitch or product slogan, a carefully crafted vision statement that stretches the imagination can also inspire employees and provide thoughtful direction to your organization.
 
Whether you are looking to make a change or create a statement that helps others see your vision more clearly, this hands-on program will help you prioritize goals, communicate with impact and walk out of the room with a personal action plan in your hands. In this interactive workshop, participants will craft their personal vision statements and share them with others. Step-by-step worksheets, as well as a vision statement instruction sheet will be provided.

C 4 Presence: What It Is, Why It Matters and How the “Rules” are Wrong

Day/Time:
Tuesday, November 07, 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm
Presenters: 
Competency alignment: 
This workshop complements the following competencies as described in the HBA Leadership Competency Framework.
2. Communicates effectively
4. Displays professional presence
Objectives: 

After participating in this session, you will be able to:

  • project more confidence in what you’re communicating, regardless of how you’re feeling.
  • use kinesthetic learning tools to dynamically alter negative communication patterns.
  • prime your voice and body to communicate powerfully.
Audience: 

All levels. This workshop is for you if you struggle to insert your opinion or voice into conversations or meetings; if you lack strategies to project confidence in public speaking situations; if you undermine your presence with negative habits like rambling, vocal filler, vocal fry and more; if you want to go from competent to commanding as a communicator in any situation, regardless of how you feel on that given day; or if you want to excel at communicating, but lack tools to empower your team and direct reports to do the same.

Description: 
The physical art of spoken communication affects the thousands of daily interactions we all have that determine the trajectory of our careers. Ever find yourself in a situation where you couldn’t think of what to say? Being at a loss for words or repeatedly saying ‘um’ often has more to do with what your breath and body are doing than what your mind is (or is not) thinking.
 
Join this session to find out how to change negative communication habits with simple, actionable and repeatable techniques that will help you come across better in any situation. Participants take a proprietary assessment focusing on specific competencies that contribute to one’s presence. Using a variety of tools and kinesthetic activities, you will learn how to project confidence, authority and credibility even when you don’t feel that way. This lively and interactive session provides opportunities to practice new skills in pairs, trios or in front of the full group.
 
Participants will leave with the results of their assessment and a passcode to a URL with an individual kinesthetic drill that addresses their particular developmental area.

Description: 
Those who attended the 2016 HBA Annual Conference in St. Louis will remember hearing about the power of connectional intelligence during Erica Dhawan’s 10-minute Sparks talk on the conference’s main stage. This workshop provides an opportunity for a much deeper dive into this topic including the 5 C’s of connectional intelligence–curiosity, combination, community, courage and combustion–and the role they play in getting big things done. 
 
Connectional intelligence is the ability to combine knowledge, ambition and human capital, forging connections on a global scale that create unprecedented value and meaning; said another way, it is the power to turn to turn people into super connectors who turbocharge collaboration to get big things done.
 
In this dynamic, engaging and fast-paced workshop, participants leverage new insights and tools to accelerate the connected power of teams, to become more agile and innovative, and to drive breakthrough ideas and outcomes. An in-workshop assessment helps individuals build awareness of their own connectional intelligence strengths and gaps, with an opportunity to discuss results in small groups. Participants are provided with a practical framework, tools and strategies for understanding ways to leverage these concepts to deliver greater team performance. Take-home resources include access to one’s connectional intelligence results and a full report summarizing the connectional intelligence archetypes.

Description: 
Imagine meeting change and challenge with enduring resilience. Imagine quelling the voice of doubt so you can lead with confidence and ease. Imagine having a trusted mentor to offer guidance and insight aligned with your core values and highest aspirations. No matter the outer success women have achieved, or aspire to achieve, many find themselves held back by their inner critic: that nagging, sometimes toxic, voice of judgment, fear and doubt.
 
This interactive workshop will demonstrate how to manage self-talk productively and purposefully, inspire participants to identify and de-stigmatize their inner critic, develop tangible techniques for taming the voice of their inner critic, and introduce them to the practical and compelling voice of their inner champion.

All busy professionals need effective strategies for making tricky conversations–telling someone no, bringing up emotionally charged topics or admitting you’ve made a mistake–less stressful and awkward.
 
In this interactive workshop, participants take away useful tips and tools to help feel prepared to tackle any tricky conversation without risking or ruining the relationship. Participants will learn what makes conversations tricky and stressful (both in general and for you specifically), ways in which we knowingly and unknowingly contribute to conflict, specific language to use that can de-escalate and diffuse common challenging conversations, how to manage emotions (yours and theirs) and how to know whether having a difficult conversation with a particular person is worth the time and energy.
