Tuesday, May 25, 1:30-2:30 PM (Eastern)

Times have changed and there is no going back. In addition to doing more to ensure business and client success, leaders must continue to do more to ensure team and organizational success – and this is especially true as we proceed through the COVID-19 crisis and our changing social constructs.

Peter Atherton, president and founder of ActionsProve will lead this session specifically designed to help leaders and managers focus on what has changed, see the opportunities presented, and learn how to achieve new levels of sustainable success without burning out.

Participants will learn:

  • How the COVID-19 crisis and specific demographic and societal shifts affect our work environment today
  • The major issues and opportunities we face in the A/E/C industry
  • How to prevent and reverse burnout and the Burnout-Disengagement Cycle
  • Why we need to design more than an “experience” to engage, inspire and retain top talent
  • The power of meaning and purpose and the Target Logic Model for Work Today
