Dare to Matter: Rising to the Level of Significance - OPENING PRESENTATION
Presented by Pete Smith, President, SmithImpact

Significant people create significant results. 

Performance. Results. Impact. Now more than ever, companies are looking for ways to improve their competitive advantage while remaining true to their mission, vision and values. At the root of every company’s success is often the key differentiator: people. Moreover, the root desire of every person is to know with certainty that who they are and what they do matters. 

The keys to engagement, motivation, balance, and fulfillment exist not solely in a passionate pursuit of success but, rather, in a relentless pursuit of significance. It is not the easier path; just the optimal one.

Significance is found not only in the job one has but within the person who does the job. By relentlessly pursuing significance on a personal level, and therefore connecting with others through that same lens of significance, we are able to create feelings of excitement and connectedness in everything we do.

From surviving a stroke to being mildly obsessed with living a life of significance, Pete's engaging, funny, and insightful keynote presentation is designed to inspire and challenge the attendees as it reveals the six keys to incorporating significance into our personal and professional lives.

At the conclusion of this presentation, the attendees will:

  • Recognize how responsibility, accountability, and performance is increased in a culture of choice
  • Explore the critical role of identity as it relates to activity and decision-making
  • Understand the powerful, yet minimizing, motivators in our lives and how to create positive, sustainable motivation 
  • Uncover the internal desire to take risks and impact the lives of others, even in the face of adversity

What if Everything You Know about Personality Styles Training is Wrong?
Presented by Merrick Rosenberg, CEO & Cofounder, Take Flight Learning

It is Time to Rethink How We Teach the Styles in the Workplace

The DISC profile is one the most commonly used assessment tools in corporations around the world. And yet, while people find it interesting – and why not, if there is one thing that people like to learn about, it is themselves – awareness does not often translate into sustained behavioral change.

  • This highly interactive and engaging session will focus on the following:
  • Why this is the perfect time to introduce or reintroduce DISC training to your organization
  • Turning classroom-based DISC training into a fun and engaging experience
  • Transforming DISC training into a process not an event by reinforcing the learning throughout the year
  • Refocusing DISC training from awareness to results
  • Repackaging the styles to shift from empty letters to metaphoric symbols
  • Revitalizing training to involve the participants
  • Reallocating time from profiles and graphs to skills and application
  • Rebranding the message to shift from learning about letters to learning skills and applying principles
