CLOSING REMARKS + HAPPY HOUR

w/ DX Learning Solutions

Celebrating the second year of the DX Symposium and the 2019 theme of "Shaping Organizations Worth Working For," we invite all attendees, speakers, partners, and those who have made the day possible to celebrate!

After an inspiring and engaging day, take a load off and grab a cocktail, beer, or glass of wine to share the day's insights with new connections and friends.

"The 2018 DX Symposium was an opportunity for me to step back, listen, engage, and open up to expand my leadership perspective. There are many dimensions to leadership, and the challenge for modern leaders is keeping up with the high expectations of our colleagues, our peers, the board and stakeholders, while change is accelerating around and through us. I’ve incorporated a few ideas and best practices from the 2018 DX Symposium that are impacting professional and personal relationships in a positive manner. As humans, we need to dedicate ourselves to learning and seeking ways to improve.

Two key improvements I implemented from the 2018 DX Symposium:

  1. From Harry Kramer’s key note, I started journaling so I can reflect on my values through my actions, my words, and my intent. This has been effective because it transposed my thoughts and mindfulness into a tangible record of my conscience to overcome cognitive dissonance.
  2. From DX Learning’s demo of their new product, The Accountability Shift™, I immediately focused on communicating with more team-focused intention versus project-focused intention. It is a subtle shift focused on how each person understands and can contribute to what we are trying to achieve versus reviewing each person’s role and presumed contributions. We are experiencing a higher level of ownership and communication for the duration of these initiatives as well as greater teamwork to foster cross-functional productivity.

I highly recommend the DX Symposium to any person, no matter your role, as an opportunity to enhance your leadership perspective."
