Keynote Sessions

The Alchemy of Talent: Unlocking Peak Performance on Complex Teams

In a time of extraordinary disruption and rapid change, extended periods of uncertainty can often lead to diminished team outcomes. But, skillful leaders can harness specific tools to enable their teams to flourish in complex times. This interactive workshop will focus on the science and skills of psychological safety and team connection, two proven drivers of team performance in moments of disruption.
Join this session with Dr. Vijay Pendakur to learn how to:

  • Leverage scientific evidence supporting the strong connection between diversity and business success
  • Upskill managers to lead psychologically safe teams
  • Harness the behavioral science of team connection to increase team resilience in extended periods of change

Taking Employees to New Heights

At the heart of every organization are its people. By applying employee-driven strategies and investing in skills and career development, CHROs can unlock the power of people to deliver on their organization’s mission and create affinity to the brand.

Hear from Delta's CHRO on how to:

  • Empower leaders to lead and become effective culture carriers
  • Facilitate greater internal mobility and career pathing
  • Responsibly leverage AI for employee opportunity and experience

Breakout Sessions

Reimagining a New People-Centric Future

Organizations face increased expectations to place their people at the center of business—and the next step is making that practical for all involved. Hear the latest research on how organizations everywhere can cultivate nimble resiliency amid change and enhance their people experience to create a future that allows employees to stay, feel fulfilled, and do their best work.

Join this session to learn:

  • Leading with practical empathy
  • Supporting the critical 80%
  • Achieving equitable flexibility

Workforce Strategy Blueprint and Building a Peer Network

When facing rapid change due to emerging business lines, new business units or evolving technology, it's HR's role to cultivate a collaborative culture, create a stable workforce and manage change. Constructing a strong network of peers outside your organization can provide a blueprint as you navigate emerging challenges. Hear from two Atlanta CHRO leaders who have relied on each other's insight and experience.

Join this breakout session as the speakers discuss:

  • Retaining key employees by managing risk and engaging critical talent
  • Gaining buy-in from key stakeholders on your change management strategy
  • Creating and maintaining a mutually beneficial network of strong HR leaders

Executive Boardroom Session

Building and Bolstering Better Managers

Managers are feeling the pressure as they balance business priorities with new employee expectations surrounding culture and flexibility. To top it off, managerial approaches that were successful in pre-pandemic times will no longer suffice. To ensure organizational success, CHROs must provide a clear roadmap for leaders from the frontline to the C-suite.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Increasing managerial competence and change management skills

  • Identifying and relieving pressure points within the organization

  • Clarifying managerial priorities to enable executives to focus on broader strategy
