Atomic Habits: How to Get 1% Better Every Day 

November 10 | 9:00am-10:00am 

How can you see dramatic improvement in your personal and professional life? The natural impulse is to attempt big steps to improve. However, taking big steps often results in failure or only temporary gains. You rarely see the permanent results you want. The key to successful change is in small habits. In this entertaining talk, James Clear focuses on the science of small habits, how they work, and how their effects compound and multiply over time. Through research and personal stories, you will not only be entertained but also come away with practical strategies they can immediately apply in their personal and professional lives.

Just Work: Get Sh*T Done, Fast & Fair

November 11 | 9:00am-10:00am 

We consistently exclude, underestimate, and underutilize huge numbers of people in the workforce even as we include, overestimate, and promote others, often beyond their level of competence. Not only is this immoral and unjust, it’s bad for business. Just Work is the solution. 
Just Work is Kim Scott’s keynote based on her new book, revealing a practical framework for both respecting everyone’s individuality and collaborating effectively. This is the essential guide leaders and their employees need to create more just workplaces and establish new norms of collaboration and respect.
