Do Good With What You Got

What do people care about? Honestly, is it really how “relatable” you are on social media, or how the latest Doritos commercial is side-splittingly funny? Whelp, guess I’m eating Doritos for the rest of my life. Loyal to the core.

We’re seeing people care more and more about their future and the futures of those around them. We have Millennials and Gen-Z players jumping into the game as powerhouse generations raised on tech that allows them to tailor their every online experience, and aggressive morals that shape their choices every day, religious or not. The brands and people who are doing good things will gain respect and attention. Just look at Tesla. Look at Patagonia. Look at our world. Now look at yourself, and ask what you’ve done to give back lately.

No matter your skill set, it’s time to set the standard to give back. Make life better for those who are less skilled or equipped or privileged than you. We set the tone for the world.

TIME: 1:30 PM

Flex Your Leadership Attributes

How do you become an effective leader when there are many different ways to lead and each of your teammates respond in a unique way?

Learn how to be flexible to meet the needs of others by exploring certain attributes that can be useful in some situations, but detrimental in others. While leading product teams and design thinking workshops at IBM, I’ve found out first-hand how important these soft skills of leadership really are. As leaders, the responsibility and success of the team falls on us. It’s bend or break.

In this workshop, designers will break out into small groups to examine and share different leadership attributes that they struggle with, and then everyone will come together to discuss the top eight attributes of the afternoon in an everybody-stands activity. Come prepared to think introspectively, share with each other, and move around.

You’ll leave with new tips on how to manage specific types of people, and a concrete set of leadership qualities to study up on and bring back to your everyday work.

TIME: 3:30 PM
