Black & White: How All Leaders Can Impact Social Change
Urban Financial Services Coalition invites you to a special session entitled “Black & White: How All Leaders Can Impact Social Change” featuring the leadership lessons from Marcus Buckingham, a British author, motivational speaker and business consultant.
This session will take place on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, 6:30 pm, EDT.
Social change is the way human interactions and relationships transform institutions culturally over time. This session will address how leaders can impact and lead social and cultural change in their organizations and community.
This session will be facilitated by, UFSC Advisory Board President and Leadership Coach with Kasuyi & Associates. After, networking, the session will start by listening to a dynamic presentation from Mr. Marcus Buckingham, whose insights will motivate any leader to move outside of their comfort zone. Then the session will transition to a round table discussion and end with key takeaways that can be used immediately to make a difference.
Marcus Buckingham is a global researcher and thought leader focused on unlocking strengths, increasing performance, and pioneering the future of how people work. He is the author of two of the best-selling business books of all time, has two of Harvard Business Review’s most circulated, industry-changing cover articles, and his strengths assessments have been taken by over 10 million people worldwide.
Building on nearly two decades of experience as a Senior Researcher at Gallup Organization, he currently guides the vision of the ADP Research Institute as Head of People + Performance research. He founded The Marcus Buckingham Company in 2006 with a clear mission: to instigate a “strengths revolution.” It started, as all revolutions do, with the simplest of ideas: that when people spend the majority of each day on the job using their greatest talents and engaged in their favorite tasks, doing exactly what they want to do, both they and their organizations will win.
In other words, companies that focus on cultivating employees’ strengths rather than simply improving on people’s weaknesses stand to dramatically increase efficiency and productivity while allowing for maximum personal growth.
In all of his speeches, Marcus demonstrates the correlation between strengths-driven, engaged employees and business fundamentals such as turnover rates, customer satisfaction, profits, and productivity. Challenging entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success, Marcus’s strengths-based approach is a win/win scenario that, without exaggeration, will define the future of work.
