UPDATE: 2018 Leadership Conference Breakout Sessions

Jen Dodd, Director of Education & Communications News, Stories

We’re only 10 weeks out from the 2018 Leadership Conference presented by Bank of America on May 17th, and we have exciting updates to share! (Don’t you love our snazzy, new official logo?! Huge kudos and great thanks to our friends at C3 Media!)

We’ve already announced our Keynote Speaker, organizational psychologist and researcher Dr. Tasha Eurich, and shared some of her videos and articles.

Now we’re ready to spill the tea on 3 of our 6 breakout sessions!

We’re thrilled to introduce to you to 3 local experts who will facilitate working breakout sessions; these one-hour sessions will help individuals, teams, and even entire organizations understand and implement new meta-skills to increase success!

NLC trainer and consultant John Loblack, Ed.D., is back by popular demand! His breakout will focus on the meta-skill of LEADING CHANGE. Here’s a teaser from his full session description:

“While change is something that excites people who love opportunities for growth and to see and learn about new things, it can scare those who love the status quo. Personal and organizational change can inspire expressions of resistance and anger. In this breakout, you’ll learn how to manage and cope with change, while helping others do the same.”


NLC’s own Board Chair and CEO of Girls Scouts of West Central Florida Jessica Muroff joins us this year to facilitate her first Conference breakout session on the meta-skill of VISION.

“Master personal and organizational vision-casting and defining the most important metrics to show true growth: Dashboards are powerful tools for individual and organizational goal tracking and strategic decision-making. By illustrating performance over time toward defined metrics, a dashboard can help you, your team, your board, your organization not only to perform better but also to telling compelling stories of your performance. “


NLC trainer and consultant Ellen Nastir
joins us to facilitate a breakout addressing the meta-skill of SELF CARE.

“Once upon a time, we were expected to check our emotions at the door as we entered work each morning and our work worries at the door of our home in the evening. The reality is that’s impossible. Whatever is stressing you follows you–all day long. By not dealing with it, you open yourself up to (at best) a drop in productivity and (at worst) serious illness. Learn real-life strategies for understanding and dealing with the people, events, and issues you’ve struggled with. Because it’s only after taking care of yourself that you can begin to take care of the people and tasks around you.”

What an exciting line up! And, just as they did last year, our breakout facilitators will guide you through creating and implementing your own, custom Action Plan for putting the new knowledge and tools you’ve gained to immediate use in your personal and professional spheres.
