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.

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.

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


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 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.
