The War at Work: Building a Next-Generation Enterprise For A Next-Generation Workforce
For future-focused organizations to succeed in the age of the networks,  a bold approach to leadership is needed. An approach where freedom, trust, and experimentation are not only embraced but encouraged.

Unfortunately, while our advancement in technology has equipped us to navigate the disruptive waters of change, our leadership ethos has not. Today, many of our organizations still operate from the 19th Century industrial age management mindset that undervalues unconventional thinking, discourages full transparency, deters initiative, frustrates experimentation, and allows people to play small

Seth will provide a roadmap for anticipating the strategic challenges that demand fundamentally new thinking. Inspire leaders to break free from obsolete mental models that limit success. And help leaders build tomorrow’s best practices today to compete and win in the new networked world of work.

Future Forces: Insights from the New World of Work
We are entering the greatest period of global transformation the world has ever known. These tectonic changes are enabled by rapidly evolving technology and destabilizing demographic changes.  The rigid business models and long-standing rules we’ve come to count upon for centuries are no longer reliable and are proving inefficient or ineffective against many of today’s most pressing challenges . This constant state of disruption mandates a new level of professional courage and influence in order to effectively impact our organizations and those around us.

How has leadership, strategy, curating and shaping culture changed in the Connected Age? How can we use knowledge and connectivity to manage vast amounts of information,  maximize organizational relationships and optimize talent utilization creating competitive advantages in an increasingly uncertain global economy?

Seth will challenge conventional leadership thinking while introducing the super trends shaping the Future of Work. Supported with cutting-edge research and category-leading case studies Seth will prepare audience participants to be able to compete and thrive in the changing landscape of work.

The Sales Revolution
No longer do institutions and authority figures hold the keys. Today power, information, and influence are shared between customers and sales professionals creating new challenges and opportunities for entire industries. How will you respond to this dramatic evolution?

In The Sales Revolution, Seth Mattison will dissect how world-class firms, leaders, and sales producers are meeting the elevated expectations of more sophisticated and demanding customers by demonstrating an entirely new set of relationship competencies and intelligence gathering skills required to compete and win business in this new complex and competitive environment.

Next Gen Talent: Unleash the Power and Perspective of Every Generation
Take a look around your organization today. There’s a good chance you’re working alongside 3 and possibly even 4 generations of talent. Going forward, the workforce is moving inexorably toward greater diversity.

This dynamic can create crippling challenges or game changing advantages for teams that learn to recognize, understand, value, and ultimately tap the strategic perspective that lies within every generation. Fresh eyes alongside seasoned wisdom will be a fierce force in the new world of work. Gen-Power will help you harness it.

Seth will explore the histories, personalities, strengths, and challenges of each unique generational group. And share insights and today’s biggest workforce trends.

Go First Leadership: Expanding Leadership Capacity in the Connected Age
In order to effectively lead others today we must first be able to lead ourselves. As traditional hierarchies are re-examined and leadership becomes less about title, tenure, and time at the organization and more about influence, impact, and social capital; our ability to develop, cultivate, and grow our personal presence and own our capacity to show up as our full selves every single day will become the new mandate for leadership in the connected age.

What will be required of us to move the masses and who will we need to become in order to meet the new demands of our hyper-connected, often times digitally distracted era and what’s at stake if we fall short?

In this highly interactive deep dive discussion, Seth will shed light on these questions and add new perspective the conversation of leadership today by dissecting the most critical skills and competencies leaders will need to acquire in order to elevate their impact on the teams they’re supporting, the organizations they’re leading, and the communities they live in.
