What We Need in 2021: Empathic Experiences at Work
As we enter 2021the global pandemic has impacted every possible work-related dimension including the spaces where we work—which are now physical, digital, hybrid, the time when we work—which are now synchronous, asynchronous, on demand, the relations formed by our work—which are now formal, informal, peer-to-peer, and the collaboration experiences in our work—which are now step-by-step, autonomous, based on objectives. In this new world, work and collaboration increasingly are becoming the same thing: work shapes the way we collaborate and in return the way we collaborate shapes the work we do and how we do it. Gianpaolo Barozzi will share the opportunity we have before us: To reimagine work so it becomes an empathic experience, created by understanding, building a culture of dignity and reducing burnout. Learn why and how this is becoming a mandate for Cisco.

Building the Four E’s of Learning To Deliver Your Business Strategy
In times of rapid-fire change, companies look to pivot quickly to stay on top of their games. During these times, it is critical for leaders to set and communicate strategy, provide a culture that instills confidence with their teams, and establish a mindset of sustainability and growth. If the global pandemic has shown us anything, it is the importance of focusing on our customers, our employees, and the value of a clear but evolving/responsive business strategy. A core component of that strategy hinges on the organization’s ability to continuously evolve the workforce. It’s not a question of if transformation will take place, but more of when and will you influence it or will it happen to you. In this session, learn about the four key areas that cultivate a high-performing learning organization where leaders can lean in to increase resiliency and responsiveness: engagement, effectiveness, efficiency, and evolution. When done correctly, these “4 Es” can foster a different way of thinking, while demonstrating the ability to rapidly evolve and maximize revenue in an ever-changing and volatile business environment.
