    Research Trends:  What Execs Want from their Leadership Bench

    Facilitated by Janet Walker, J. Walker & Associates


    Do you sometimes feel out of alignment with what your executive team is needing from your development activities?  Are they looking at your activities as a cost versus an investment?  How do you start to understand what they need and how to use language that is meaningful to them?

    During our conversation: 

    • we'll talk about the business results and trends executives are discussing and help us use the same language that connects and align business results with human performance and organizational culture.
    • we'll see a few competency frameworks that are used for different levels of leadership to help align different levels of performance.
    • we’ll discuss strategies we are using in our organizations that are helping us know and be clear that we are part of the conversations and gaining the confidence of our leaders.

      Participants will leave with a new/renewed awareness of how they are showing up with their executive teams and start strategizing how they can engage differently or stronger with their leadership teams to assure the executive team knows we are working for business results.

      Janet Walker helps CEOs and business owners become the leaders and create organizational culture their employees deserve. Janet has built a career leading and executing human capital strategies; conducting nearly 1000 interviews assessing leadership performance. She has developed many employees and future leaders, led and sold a start up technology company, but nothing satisfies her hunger for helping people achieve their potentialJanet leads and mentors executive advisory groups. She helps CEOs and business owners step out of the day-to-day activities to think differently, gain insights from other leaders’ experience, make better decisions, take bold action, and generate meaningful results. Her background includes: a Doctorate of Education, Human Resource Development, leading Organization Development departments for larger corporations, Adjunct Faculty for various Midwest Universities, Organization Development Network member and past president, award-winning training professional, and Crucial Conversations, Certified Trainer.

      Finding Better Problems - Framestorm:

      A Design Thinking Technique

      Facilitated by Stuart Chittenden, Gilbert+Chittenden


      Transitioning out of a pandemic is uncharted territory and requires a new approach to considering the problems facing you and your business. “This is the way we’ve always done it” is not going to work in 2021, but before taking action to move forward how do you even know you are heading in the right direction?  Now is a perfect time to think differently about the challenges you are facing, to ask better questions and reframe your problems using design thinking approaches.

      As a participant, you will identify a challenge you are facing and learn a design thinking approach to reframe it, all the while strengthening accountability and relationships with others.  You’ll receive an email prior to the session for more pre-work details.

      Stuart Chittenden

      Born in sight of England’s Canterbury Cathedral, Stuart has called Omaha home since 2004. Formerly a London-based lawyer and an Omaha brand consultant, as well as consulting with Gilbert + Chittenden, Stuart designs and delivers conversation programs for corporate and nonprofit organizations, and for public and community purposes through Squishtalks, a conversation consultancy founded in 2010. Community projects include a couple of 830 mile long conversations. Stuart currently serves on the board of the social justice nonprofit, Nebraska Appleseed.
