The Business Case for Belonging
with Cynthia Knapek, President, Leadership Louisville Center
Having a diverse executive team increases success – we all understand how important it is. However, the data shows we are not achieving that sought-after inclusive leadership pipeline. The single most important way we can turn that around is perhaps by fostering a true sense of belonging in our organizations. In this session, we’ll examine why this specific aspect of inclusion has a high leverage impact. Belonging is intrinsically linked to feeling that your voice matters so we will discuss how traditional power structures in organizations can either diminish or amplify voices.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn Cynthia’s approach for strengthening the social fabric that builds strong teams, and also have the chance to share your learnings with other participants.

To Lead is Human: Understanding Your Imperfections as a Leader During a Crisis
with Dr. OJ Oleka, President of the Association of Independent Kentucky Colleges and Universities (AIKCU)
As leaders, we often feel like every decision we make is critical to the success of our team, organization, or bottom line. As a result, there is tremendous pressure put on us — by others and ourselves — to get every decision right. This can sometimes lead to anxiety, overexertion, and ultimately a wrong decision. During crisis leadership, as we are all experiencing right now, that pressure is heightened. In this discussion, Dr. Oleka will lead an honest conversation on the humanity of leadership and how understanding your imperfections as a human being can help in maximizing your potential as a great leader in a crisis.

Crisis Resilience for CEOs
with John Baldoni, Internationally Recognized Leadership Consultant, Coach, and Author
Crisis provokes opportunity. Navigating the challenges of a crisis requires a leader to tap into an inner self as a means of demonstrating a more energetic outer self—the one we show to others, the ones who depend upon you for leadership. Such leaders do this by energizing the organization with their ability to connect compassionately in pursuit of shared goals.
