When Your Plan Isn’t Really Your Plan

JULIE B. WALKER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, THE PEYTON WALKER FOUNDATION & PRESIDENT, CHOICE MEETINGS

Surrendering YOUR plan and accepting your PLAN will enable you to have a far greater impact on this world than anything you could have ever imagined.

THE EVERYWHERE WORKPLACE IN A NEVER-NORMAL WORLD

Ira Wolfe, SUCCESS PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS

Well, the road back from the pandemic has been anything but predictable, adequate, or normal. Building an Everywhere Workplace is not just an essential talent strategy but a business growth strategy too. It’s not just about where people work and how much they get paid but how employees experience work. During this presentation, Future of Work global thought leader Ira S Wolfe will take you on a deep dive into past workforce trends that led us into the Perfect Labor Storm and offer a sneak peek into a future of work strategy shaped by an experience-first mindset and culture.
