People Before Things

Dinner Keynote 

Chris Laping
Author, “People Before Things” and Former CIO, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc.
Expand Additional Information

Gallup reports that 70 percent of all change initiatives fail. Why do some organizations succeed at delivering change while others don’t? Quite simply, their leaders put people before things. Chris Laping knows this well as former CIO of Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Inc. and author of the book "People Before Things". Laping believes that technology alone will never bring organizations the efficiencies they desire. Instead, he believes that helping change leaders focus on the areas that truly matter is the key for creating effective transformation. In this presentation, Laping shares his secrets for how to make an impact by focusing on the people before the things.

When considering leadership techniques, an out-of-the-box approach to one leader may seem perfectly normal to another. For others, leadership techniques are fluid, constantly evolving and adapting from one project to the next. The best measure of leadership, however, comes from quantifying the success of the team as a whole. When employees understand how their contributions impact larger organizational initiatives, success multiplies, along with growth and inspiration.
