May 25, 2022, 12:00 PM-7:00 PM EST - May 26, 2022, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM EST

Gallup World Headquarters, 901 F St NW, Washington, DC 20004

Let's face it: The pandemic has changed everything. It has forced organizations to rethink their purpose, refocus their brands and reimagine their cultures. Organizations that have had success during this time have done so by getting their strengths together. Do you know your organization's most differentiating strengths? Do you spend more time focusing on your organization's strengths rather than its weaknesses? During our time, we will explore how to create a strategy to drive performance and a culture that sustains excellence through those strengths. We will:

  • Quickly and efficiently learn all Gallup's and Drucker Institute's findings regarding the new demands of the world's workplace.
  • Benchmark your current leadership strategies to adjust to today's most pressing problems.
  • Brainstorm strategies that drive growth by maximizing organizational strengths.
  • Evaluate your current thinking on the retention of stars.

Discussion topics will include:

  • your organization's unique strengths
  • the role of wellbeing
  • your opinion on hybrid workplaces
  • the reality of stress, burnout and depression

In this 24-hour experience, you will learn everything Gallup and Drucker know as quickly as we can teach it. Then, it's up to you to change the way you lead, making choices that build your strategies from data and strengths.

Do not come alone. Bring your best change agent.
