Getting Ready for UNLEASH America 2018 in Las Vegas

Marc Coleman

 

After one of the toughest winters in history, I am relishing the thought of landing at McCarran airport to be welcomed by dry heat, casino colors, and the glitz and glamor that you will not find anywhere else on the planet!

For the intrepid and enthusiastic conference-goer, UNLEASH America 2018 in Las Vegas promises to keep everyone on their toes. The show is uniquely fast and furious, with on-demand content meeting speed networking while being immersed in the global headquarters of hospitality. You’ll head back to work inspired and armed with the knowledge that allows for intelligent action.

Here’s a quick rundown of the big themes we’ll be tackling at the most important gathering of enterprise HR leadership in the U.S. this May.

Trust & Technology


A new world order is emerging and we might have lost faith in our institutions and leaders, but millions of people travel in cars with total strangers, exchange digital currencies or find themselves chatting up a bot. This is the age of “distributed trust,” a paradigm shift driven by innovative technologies that are rewriting the rules of an all-too-human relationship.

If we are to benefit from this radical shift, we must understand the mechanics of how trust is built, managed, lost and repaired in the digital age. UNLEASH America 2018 covers a detailed map of this terra incognita and explore’s what’s next for humanity, leadership, human resources and how to coexist around all this exponential technology that is disrupting jobs, industries, functions, products and life in general.

We’ll delve deeper into this relationship between trust and technology, pulling from everyday examples like Amazon Echo, Brexit, Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, and China’s planned citizen scores.

Humanocracy

We’ll go beyond the why and explain the how of unleashing the latent entrepreneurial energy that exists deep within large, established organizations.

Entrepreneurship flourishes in organizations that are bold, simple, flat and open — not the usual hallmarks of a typical large corporation. But they need to be and they can be.

Tomorrow’s winners are not those doing just one more re-org. We need an approach that’s emergent, collaborative, iterative and inescapable.

Despite the fascination of policymakers and pundits with Silicon Valley’s unique capacity for “disruption,” the real challenge isn’t creating more entrepreneurial enclaves but infusing the spirit of innovation in established organizations. It’s about more than just being hip; successful startups often don’t stay hip and entrepreneurial for long and we’ll be looking at HR’s role in future proofing organisations as amazing as the people inside them!

Innovation at Scale


We know that the difference between the most innovative organizations and the least is a question of commitment, mindset and process.

That’s why we’ll be sharing some of the secrets of Google’s Innovation factory and the principles of moonshot thinking. We’ll talk about what it takes to build an innovation factory inside organizations of all sizes.

We must take the lead in rethinking the role of HR as the catalyst for sustainable innovation.

Rebooting HR

We’ll share solid research on how happiness affects productivity and performance, distinguish between employee happiness and satisfaction, and offer clear tips for leadership, managers and HR managers on how to build an environment that promotes employee happiness.

You’ll leave with a much clearer understanding of the value employee happiness brings to company performance and clear steps to create a work environment that promotes happiness.

See you in Vegas! Marc.
