About The Event

Coffee and croissants from 8:00 AM.

As individuals and leaders, we strive to help people develop their potential and to articulate and become the person they want to be. But how do we grow as individuals and how can organizations renew themselves?

Meet Whitney Johnson, award-winning author, world-class keynote speaker, and executive coach. In her new book “Smart Growth” she shows how growth happens in a predictable way, so we can chart a way forward to achieve our goals. During this session she will share key takeaways from this new book with you.

The journey comes in three phases: the Launch Point, the Sweet Spot, and the High End. Compelling examples of successful people show how to keep going when growth is slow and what to do when growth and learning are almost too fast to keep up with. Through the session Whitney will also focus on how this framework effectively can be used for organizations for talent development, succession planning and composition of teams.

As individuals grow, so do organizations and societies. Growth is learning put into action, ideally action that betters the world as we better ourselves both personally and professionally. Growth occurs when learning is internalized, when we try something new and invest in the effort to move it from being something we do to something we are.

Get inspired to jump to a new S-curve!
