Webinar: Upstream-The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen
September 10th at 12 EDT
In this webinar, bestselling author Dan Heath will reveal how some leaders have learned to spot problems in advance: There's a school district that can predict which students will drop out -- 4 years before graduation. There's an internet service company that can predict which customers are likely to cancel their subscriptions -- as early as two weeks after they sign up! When we shift from downstream response to upstream planning, it can cause miracles: One company eliminated 20 million customer support calls by asking, "How can we make sure our customers never need to call us?" Dan will share the three forces that push us downstream, as well as the powerful levers we can use to start preventing problems before they happen.

Webinar: Making it Personal – The Power of Storytelling for Building Inclusive Environments 
October 8th at 12 EDT
What is the secret ingredient to effective diversity, equity, and inclusion learning? Initiatives that lead to sustainable change focus on empathy skills/perspective taking of the “other” and goal setting to encourage behavior change. Storytelling can help us accomplish both perspective taking and goal setting. What you can see by looking at a person may not tell you very much about that individual’s background, beliefs or values, or what joys and grief the person has experienced. Maria Morukian will explore the value of storytelling for diversity, equity, and inclusion learning; identify the kinds of stories one can use to foster empathy and understanding; and provide an exercise to demonstrate the power of storytelling.
