Tue, May 16, 2017 - 4:15 pm to 5:00 pm Opening Keynote: Chasing Excellence: What Makes Winners

Sue Enquist chased excellence her entire career as head coach of the UCLA Bruins women’s softball team. She finished her 27-year career with a 887-175-1 (.835) record, making her the winningest softball coach among all active coaches. So what is her secret for developing a winning mindset? Enquist will share the daily micro behaviors which create a person's competitive intelligence. She will help women get smart and specific around what it really takes to be at their personal best and a consistent influencer in the work place. Enquist’ formula produced 65 All-Americans and 15 Olympians. Her philosophy of life, leadership, and competition can be explained in three words—prepare, love, honor. Anything worthy of your passion should embrace this approach--whether it’s achieving success in business, growing a service organization or leading an athletic team to victory.

Wed, May 17, 2017 - 9:00 am to 9:45 am Keynote: The Future Of Happiness

Happiness is the greatest competitive advantage in the modern economy, yet so often it is seen as a luxury at work.  However, a decade of research shows that training your brain to be positive at work actually fuels greater success. In fact, 75 percent of job success is predicted not by intelligence, but by an individual’s optimism, social support network and the ability to manage energy and stress in a positive way.  It is time to get strategic about how we can raise happiness levels at our organizations to empower teams to reach their full potential. Blankson draws on her unique business experience as the co-founder of GoodThink to empower teams that happiness is a choice, a habit and spreads.  She explains what positive psychology is, how much we can change, and gives practical strategies for reaping the Happiness Advantage in the midst of change and challenge.

Wed, May 17, 2017 - 4:45 pm to 5:30 pm Closing Keynote: The Pursuit Of Endurance: Realizing Your Talent And Exploring Your Limits

Every journey begins with a single step. When Jennifer Pharr Davis first set foot on the 2,189-mile Appalachian Trail she was a naïve and inexperienced 21-year old. It took five months of mistakes, bad weather and awkward social encounters to reach Maine, but when she arrived she was a different, more confident person. And, she was a much better hiker. Seven years later she returned to the northern terminus to attempt an endurance record on the same trail. This time she covered it in 46 days. In doing so, she became the first woman to set the overall mark. There was no trophy awaiting her final summit, but she carried the lessons of resiliency, adaptability and teamwork off of that last mountain.
