Speaker: Nate Regier, PhD, CEO and Co-Founding Owner, Next Element Consulting
Summary: Leadership at the Brink: Using Conflict to Create vs. Destroy
Session Description: Albert Einstein said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results." Drawing from his just-released book, the speaker will compare the rise and fall of human civilization with the life cycle of an organization. When we stay in one place too long, struggling against one another to resist change, things begin to fall apart. When we choose negative conflict, we participate in our own demise by failing to respond to a changing world. There comes a point where course corrections are no longer an option, where the point of no return has come and gone and we've doomed ourselves to extinction. In this session, the speaker will show you how to apply Next Element's Compassion Cycle of openness, resourcefulness, and persistence to your organization, so you can be perpetually moving, searching, effective, and adaptive instead of risking extinction by doing the same things and expecting different results. This session will affirm the positive potential in human beings, and reveal a road map for recognizing where we are and what to do next. Nate’s new book, Conflict Without Casualties: A Field Guide for Leading With Compassionate Accountability, will be available for purchase and signing.
