Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls | Soul Fuel

All leaders experience summits in their journey but, at one time or another, they will also have deep valleys to walk through, struggles that will try to defy them and self-doubt that will rage within them. In this session, Bear Grylls will shine a light on four specific things that have shaped his leadership and carried him through the storms. He will ask us to consider how these four things could impact our own journey.

Amy Edmondson

Amy Edmondson | The Fearless Organisation Demands Psychological Safety

To succeed in an uncertain, fast-moving world, organisations must be fearless to be agile–which means they must build a psychologically-safe environment in which people can learn and grow. In this session, Dr Amy Edmondson shares why psychological safety matters more than ever and how to build it. With so much riding on innovation, creativity and engagement, it is essential to attract, cultivate and retain talented employees–but even more important to ensure they are able to speak up to fully contribute to the enterprise. Amy helps us understand why engagement and candour are required for success and high standards in today’s knowledge economy—she identified the link between psychological safety and high performance, and how leaders can create psychological safety.

She is the author of four books, including Teaming: How Organisations Learn, Innovate and Compete in the Knowledge Economy, exploring why teamwork is so important in today’s organisations—and why it is so challenging. Her most recent release: The Fearless Organisation: Creating Psychological Safety in the Workplace for Learning, Innovation, and Growth offers practical guidance for teams and organisations who are serious about finding success in today’s modern economy.

Jo Saxton

Jo Saxton | Level Up Your Leadership

Looking at the opportunities and challenges facing us every day, we might think it requires the talents and capacity of superheroes to effectively lead our people, our projects, and even ourselves. No matter what your level of leadership is, you soon realise that not everything is under your control even if it is your responsibility. But when you level up your leadership, you are free to lead yourself and others to your greatest capacity, using all your gifts, skills, and talents. This incisive talk will help you take the limits off your leadership and truly level up by asking ourselves some probing questions about what’s happening in your life and what is shaping you.
