With one third to half of the world's workforce comprised of introverts, it's critical for organizations to learn how introverts think and work in ways that are crucial to the survival of today's organization. On Sunday, August 4, Opening General Speaker Susan Cain , author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking, will give advice on how to develop leaders, manage teams, make smart hires, and stimulate innovation, as well as how to structure an organization so the best ideas dominate, rather than those from the most vocal and assertive.
For the Closing General Session on Tuesday, August 6, Dan Heath , a Senior Fellow at Duke University's CASE Center, as well as co-author of two New York Times bestsellers, Made to Stick and Switch, will discuss how our decisions are disrupted by an array of biases and irrationalities, and how we seek out information that supports us and downplays information that doesn't. He will introduce a four-step process designed to counteract these biases, share stories, and give attendees fresh strategies and practical tools that will enable them to make better choices.
