The leading innovator of strategies to advance collaboration to achieve superior business results in the workplace - Interaction Associates - will address the timely issue of women in leadership at the 2015 Conscious Capitalism Conference, which runs April 7-9 at the JW Marriott Hotel, 151 West Adams Street, Chicago, IL.
IA senior consultant Deborah Rocco will present Advancing Women Leaders: A Practical Approach - "Lessons from Einstein" on Wednesday, April 8, 4:20 pm.
Deborah Rocco will explore how to move beyond currently held beliefs about gender and leadership and engage relevant stakeholders in collaborative conversations that matter. Participants will examine the current conversation about gender equity, fraught with blame and controversy, and apply the principles of appreciative inquiry to ignite conversations that expand their thinking.
"Einstein said, 'If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask . . . for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes,'" said Deborah Rocco. "We need to heed Einstein's lesson and ask the right questions. This means abandoning ideas of blame and moving toward a more consciously collaborative approach, involving both genders in meaningful and productive conversations focused on solutions," she added.
Conscious Capitalism 2015 is intended to deepen practical application of the principles of Conscious Capitalism, bringing together CEOs and their leadership teams, executives and entrepreneurs, consultants and coaches who serve and support them, and anyone else interested in learning more about Conscious Capitalism.
Interaction Associates has been a regular speaker at the Conscious Capitalism Conferences.
