The Age of Disruption: Everything Has Changed and Nothing Is Different
Presented by: Scott Stratten
Wednesday, June 20 | 11:30 – 12:45PMWe’re in the age of disruption. Today’s business climate is changing at an unprecedented rate. Every week, it seems there is a new strategy, social media site or technology that is a “must use” or a “game changer.” What we lose in this endless quest for the next bright, shiny business object — is that at the core of business, while everything has changed, nothing is different. Trust, connection, consistency, and service will always trump any new app to hit the market. In his keynote, Scott will walk you through what is real and what is only a smoke screen.

Learn how to constantly remind your players and employees of who they are in service of while being acutely aware of downstream beneficiaries. The more a company creates “mission moments” for employees and team members to understand that GREATER PURPOSE, the better off the team will be when it comes to enduring any challenges along the way to achieving its goal. In this captivating session, Don Yaeger shares his findings from interviews with Olympic Gold Medal winners like USA Basketball Head Coach Mike Krzyzewski (Coach K), 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant, and USA Basketball CEO Jerry Colangelo, as well as 4-Time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady, thought-leader Simon Sinek and longtime Medtronic CEO Bill George.
