UTC Joint Luncheon with Dr. Timothy Clark

Leading Epic Change. Many people think change is a function of management, when in fact, it is a function of leadership. This common misconception is one of biggest obstacles to proactive and profit-producing innovation in the marketplace. Instead of reflexively looking to management for direction, organizations that face the challenges of volatility and unpredictability in markets should look to the people who are the most engaged with the organization's mission for leadership. Dr. Tim Clark describes the journey and provides the tools for new leaders to emerge to create meaningful impact in their organizations. He teaches leaders how to pull energy out of a system and summon and redirect institutional will.  

Engaging Employees in Tough Times. Through his research, Dr. Clark has discovered surprising relationships between employees, their organizations, and their engagement level. Turning the traditional approach to engagement on its head, he explains why the mindset and attitudes of the most highly engaged employees are the least dependent on the conditions their employer provides. What does this mean? Why do some people embrace challenge and succeed under adverse conditions while others allow those same conditions to affect their performance? Why are the highly engaged more willing to leave their comfort zones and travel to their outer limits? Why are the highly engaged more independent, aggressive, and self-directed in their learning patterns? Dr. Clark takes audiences through the ground-breaking research and breaks down the connections between mindset, personal patterns, and performance to show that the only sustainable model is when employees own their own engagement.

Culture and Human Capital. The single most difficult element to change in an organization is culture; not surprisingly, it is also the very last to change. In tough times, recreating an organization's culture can be the element that produces greater employee engagement and therefore begins to save the bottom line. Clark calls on his extensive research and his experience at every level of the business world to give a three-dimensional view of the changes that can happen in a business' culture. Culture is the collection of values, attitudes, behaviors, and patterns that characterize organization. It's what most people believe, think, and do most of the time. Taken together, the cultural assets largely determine the performance of the organization. By focusing on the human capital, businesses can tap into the great potential of having a proactive and adaptive culture.
