Group Flow: Unlock the Secret to Your Team's Creativity, Peak Performance and Happiness
In our hyper-connected, meeting heavy and fast-paced world of work, crowded calendars and competing demands leave many feeling like they are spending a lot of energy and not getting much done. Individual team members often crave the opportunity to get into an individual state of distraction-free hyper focus and creativity.
But the nature of our world today tends to involve highly collaborative endeavors. The complex problems we are called on to solve frequently require working with others and engaging in frequent and intense creative collaboration. Stealing away time for distraction-free focus to enter the individual flow state isn’t always easy.
This raises the question: Can a team or a group collaborate and still achieve flow collectively?
Join me for this interactive session, where we take a closer look at Flow, understand its benefits and learn how to tap into this optimal state of being to unlock the secret to your team's creativity, peak performance and happiness.

IntermediateThe rules of the game have changed! Studies indicate that by the year 2030, half of jobs will be ones that do no exist today and half the jobs of today will no longer exist. The volatility, uncertainty, and ambiguity ushered in by this age of accelerations extends not just to our environment, politics, and communities, but our organizations as well. In response, organizations are undergoing a massive transformation in technology, structure, culture, and values - fundamentally changing not only what we work on, but how we work, and who we work with.Where does this leave our careers? If answering the question ‘Where do you see yourself five years from now?’ leaves you stuck, uncertain, confused and/or anxious, you are not alone.Join me for “Careers in the Agile of Accelerations”. During this workshop, we will look back at your career and look ahead at organizational and cultural trends, and understand the skills and capabilities for new and emerging roles. Build the awareness and confidence to take control and navigate a career aligned to the future of work and guided by your Ikigai (reason for being).

Do you have a nagging feeling that you may not be investing in building the right thing?
Do your products have features that are rarely or never used? Does it takes your organization the full investment of building and launching a product to validate an idea? Is your organization challenged with striking the right balance between the demands of a scalable, high quality product and innovating on the most compelling problems and opportunities for your customers?
At Pearson Online & Blended Learning, we met these challenges head on by creating and implementing a framework that includes early collaboration within a multi-disciplinary team and a light-weight process. Based on Design Thinking principles and practices, the framework effectively balances discovery and delivery efforts. It ensures that, across the portfolio, our investments are focused on the right things, and the efforts of our delivery teams are aligned to solving the most important problems for our customers and addressing the most valuable opportunities for our business.
In this interactive session, learn about this discovery framework, our implementation approach, and our triumphs and challenges. Each participant will have the opportunity to reflect on how a similar approach may help them address challenges within their own organizations.
