ALL OF SETH MATTISON’S SESSIONS ARE HIGHLY CUSTOMIZED AND DETAILED SESSION DESCRIPTIONS FOLLOW INITIAL BRIEFING AND BACKGROUND RESEARCH

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 a 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 road map 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 for Navigating Uncertainty in the Connected Age

We are entering the greatest period of business transformation the world has ever known. The rigid models and long-standing rules we’ve come to count upon for decades are no longer reliable. In its wake, a new future is a being created, one fueled by openness, connection, transparency and shared power. The connected age of the network is upon us. Navigating this shift mandates a new level of personal courage and influence, particularly from those guiding talent strategies for organizations today.

Relationship Revolution: Building better connections in the digital age

In today’s super-wired, highly digital society, humans still crave social interaction and relationships. In business, creating strong relationships is the key to achieving success, both individually and as an organization. What’s the secret for cultivating successful relationships, particularly in business? As more and more of lives play out virtually, connections can sometimes feel less than fulfilling. From Facebook to LinkedIn, Twitter to Instagram, it’s important to remember just how powerful it can be to reach beyond the fiber optics and make that physical connection.

By balancing the time and energy we spend in both the physical and virtual space we can create deeper and more meaningful connections.

Seth will explore 5 key insights that will equip you for building better, stronger, more authentic relationships in the new world of work.

The Sales Revolution: A power shift has occurred in the world of customers and clients today

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 reexamined 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.
