During this event, attendees will learn how leaders strategically activate, use, and maintain energy. Energy is the fuel that makes great organizations run. Without it, leaders will have a difficult time creating change. This session will help you understand how to think about energy in your organization and how leaders lead strategically to generate it. You will also learn about the specific benefits that come to an organization when the energy for change is present across a system of people.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Bernd Vogel, a Professor of Leadership and Director of the Henley Centre for Leadership at the Henley Business School in the U.K. His research focuses on how leaders mobilize and maintain energy in organizations. He is co-author of the book Fully Charged: How Great Leaders Boost Their Organizations’ Energy and Ignite High Performance published by HBR Press. He and his colleagues received the Best Paper Award from the Center for Positive Organizations for their work. Dr. Vogel teaches, consults and speaks internationally. He helps organizations develop inspiring and purposeful leadership to create effective change.

Following the keynote, workshops will be offered that will provide hands-on examples of how to create activities that generate and sustain purpose-driven energy in an organization. The workshops will be led by Dr. Vogel, Cynthia Ronan (Master Certified Coach), and Wendy Roop (Professional Certified Coach). More information on the workshops will be available soon!
