BECOMING A CONVERSATION AGENT

This talk is about the history and future of achieving human potential. It is based on my lifelong journey in working with, researching, analyzing, and understanding how people develop and learn, and building frameworks to affect behavior in support of both. A five-minute taste of the seed that started it can be seen in my 2021: Uploading Humanism Ignite Austin talk.

Areas of focus:

  • The learning framework that changed it all – this is a personal story that lead to a powerful insight
  • A discussion of how to design environment to affect behavior – a touch of anthropology
  • What makes effective teams work – team dynamics and org development work I have done
  • The value of continuous learning and how to achieve it – the stock and flow of knowledge and why it’s important today
  • A weighing of what we are leaving behind and what we are taking with us – technology as spark to accelerate convergence and implications on relationships and culture

Attendees will leave with a stronger grasp of how to approach mindfully the new world of work and make smarter moves through innovation to impact experience, social media/networks to accelerate relationships and scale, and technology to enable emerging models like collaboration, networked communities of work, etc.
