About the sessions:
People as a creative challenge [Hebrew]
Managing people is challenging. Managing creative people who have their way of thinking within a highly technical enterprise environment is pretty much destined to fail.
I didn’t have much of a choice, however, so I started experimenting with people. My people. And the unexpected happened.
In this talk I will speak about hiring and training; on how can we keep the work challenging and rewarding even for our most experienced employees; what can we do when faced with a tight budget for personal development and how managing people can be a fun role to play.
Finding Your Leadership Voice [English]
At every stage of our careers, drilling down to our fundamental state of leadership matters. For those young and old, this topic speaks to those trying to find or amplify their voice towards making change in their communities, their companies, and their world. Audience members come away from this talk understanding their unique leadership voice, and excited to apply that voice in its highest and best purpose in the big problems we must collectively work to solve
