High-Performance Hybrid Culture
Insights for Elevating Culture in a Work from Anywhere World

Culture does not live in the walls of your building; it lives in the hearts of your people.

No one knows exactly what the Future of Work will look like, but we do know the culture drivers required to support talent working from anywhere today. Seth Mattison knows that we are never going back to business as usual. After years of experimentation, it’s clear the Future of Work is less about a place and more about building cultures that support people’s potential, regardless of where they’re physically located.

As we enter a new era of work, leaders are faced with the challenge of reengineering their organizations to drive business performance and maintain the cohesiveness of their culture both inside and outside their four walls. The problem is, only half of organizations today are prepared to support this transformation. Are you one of them? In this session, Seth Mattison helps leaders rethink how to best support talent and activate a high-performance culture in a work-from-anywhere world.

With teams mixed between essential onsite work and remote settings, new systems, processes, skills, and competencies will be required to build and maintain an inclusive and equitable culture rooted in belonging. These efforts will fuel a culture that feels engaging, participatory, and full of the human connection we deeply value.

Seth Mattison will unpack the challenges and opportunities our hybrid environments present, along with research, case studies, and best practices for what leaders and managers can do today to effectively support and lead a work-from-everywhere workforce.

Attendees will gain:

●  Insight into the data of what drives real engagement with hybrid workers

●  Frameworks for building a work-from-anywhere culture

●  Strategies for supporting a culture of fairness and equity

●  Techniques for maintaining human connection digitally

Elevating Employee Engagement
Connecting Hearts and Minds to Drive Better Business Outcomes in the New World of Work

As the war for talent continues to wage across industries today, organizations will be forced to battle for a smaller and smaller pool of qualified candidates. Losing high-performing individuals is simply not an option when growth is the mandate. Supporting leaders in their efforts to shape elevated employee engagement has never mattered more. Seth Mattison knows that talent needs more than a fleeting warm-fuzzy feeling and a decent paycheck to thrive today, helping leaders understand how to unlock the key drivers of engagement through purpose, meaning, vision, psychological safety, and opportunities for growth. Not only does engagement have the potential to significantly affect employee retention, productivity, and loyalty, it is also a key link to customer satisfaction, company reputation and overall stakeholder value.

The Great Reset has created a moment of reflection for the whole world- societal values are shifting and new expectations are emerging. Seth Mattison will help you answer some of the most pressing questions: What does talent need today to feel deeply connected to their work and their teams? What will be required of leaders and organizations to support these shifting values and drive engagement?

In this highly interactive deep-dive discussion, Seth Mattison will shed light on these questions and add a new perspective to the conversation today by dissecting the fundamental drivers of engagement and helping to unlock the employee experience of the future.

●  Insights on how the drivers of engagement have shifted and what matters now.

Gritty
Building Resilience in the of Face Resistance

Leaning into uncertainty, ambiguity, and adversity as tools for grit, growth, and resilience.

Seth Mattison defines resilience as the process of responding well in the face of adversity. As much as resilience involves “bouncing back” from difficult experiences, it can also mean profound personal growth through grit and grace. Seth unpacks one of the most critical leadership attributes of the moment and how the past two years have given leaders the opportunity to test their mettle and find their resilience in the face of unprecedented change.

In a world of ongoing marketplace disruptions and organizational transformation, the virtues of grit and tenacity stand tall among today’s most critical leadership attributes. The most resilient leaders of high-performing organizations can adapt to changing circumstances and encourage others to do the same. As a result, their teams operate with higher productivity, engagement, and a greater sense of well-being. Resilient leaders cultivate emotional intelligence and strong relationships, and they facilitate learning and personal development through everyday experiences. More importantly, these exceptional leaders create a culture of psychological safety- the number one predictor of high-performing teams.

In this program, Seth Mattison will unpack the leadership habits that improve team well-being, productivity, and performance and share the latest research in neuroscience and psychology for developing resilient leaders, teams, and organizations.

Attendees gain:

●  Insights on your habits, belief systems and the neuroscience that support and enhance resilience

●  Lessons to cultivate positive emotions, make stress work for you, and activities that proactively build resilience

●  Techniques for stepping out of reactivity and responding to what is most important

●  Strategies for fostering a culture of psychological safety

The Heart of Leadership
The Secret and the Science to Influencing and Leading During Times of Transformation

In this moment of disruption leadership everywhere is faced with the challenge of defining the Future of Work while delivering value to the enterprise today. Navigating disruption of this magnitude is often messy and regularly takes years to work through. However, Seth Mattison knows these moments also provide us with an incredible opportunity to re-assess, re-think, re-imagine, and re-design how we want to do this thing called work and the type of leadership that will be needed in this moment.

The stakes have never been higher for organizations looking to grow while competing for a smaller and smaller number of qualified potential employees who are pursuing opportunities across industries. Seth Mattison provides leaders with the insights and surprising truths about where the world is moving next, and the type of leadership skills needed most to meet the moment.

Leaders today must have the understanding and the skill to not only connect with the rational and logical parts of people’s brains but also have the capacity to connect with their hearts to understand what drives human behavior at the deepest level.

As traditional hierarchies are re-examined, leadership becomes less about title and tenure at the organization and more about influence, impact, and the ability to connect. Developing and cultivating our capacity to reveal our full selves every single day will become the new mandate for leadership in the modern era.

In this highly interactive deep-dive discussion, Seth Mattison will add a new perspective to the conversation and unlock leadership potential by elevating empathy, courage, influence, and impact for a better world of work.

Attendees gain:

●  Perspective on the neuroscience and neuroradiology of influence and change.

●  An unprecedented look at the future-ready skills and competencies to prime performance, culture, and organizational growth.

●  Strategies for activating the power of empathy and attunement to drive engagement.

●  Access to case studies from category-leading brands activating heart-based cultures to drive growth.

The War at Work: A Tale of Navigating the Unwritten Rules of the Hierarchy in a Half Changed World. by Seth Mattison

The War at Work: A Tale of Navigating the Unwritten Rules of the Hierarchy in a Half Changed World.

by Seth Mattison

On a quiet night in the C-suite of Axis Medical Group, Brian Kelly holds a ten-pound sledgehammer, standing in front of a massive corner office. Staring back at him is his own name, etched across the door in polished block letters. He worked for twenty-five years to get it there, but tonight that has to change. And so, with every ounce of his strength... Brian starts to swing. We're entering the age of the Network, a world of hyper-connectivity and constant flux, where disruption is the norm and autonomy, empowerment and meaning are basic expectations of the new workforce. Organizations are being forced to execute and perform today while simultaneously maintaining the discipline to reinvent themselves for a very different future. Successfully navigating the challenge of thriving in two very different worlds is the mandate of the modern day leader. This book will show you how. The fact is, we live in a half-changed world, where everything from communication and etiquette, policies and procedures, where and when work happens, and "paying your dues" are still influenced by a long list of "unwritten rules" established by the world that preceded the Network: the Hierarchy. Responsible for the creation of incredible efficiencies and scale over the past 150 years, the top-down structures and culture of the Hierarchy are still deeply embedded in our organizations and leadership ideologies today. Drawing from their experience guiding everyone from Fortune 500 executives to major-league coaches through the new world of work, Seth Mattison and Joshua Medcalf combine timeless truth with timely strategy in THE WAR AT WORK, a fable grounded in two leaders' introspective journey from the top down world of the Hierarchy to the hyper connected world of the Network. For anyone seeking to embrace the future, find meaning, purpose, and mastery in their career and leadership capacity, this story is a compass, providing new perspectives and practical solutions to navigate the disruptive waters of change, unleash human potential, and bring genuine transformation to a world that desperately needs it.
