The U-M Management Conference provides a forum for the university’s managers, at all levels, to learn best practices, hone managerial skills and increase self-knowledge. It includes a keynote, breakouts and a closing session.
The Future of Work is all About Employee Experience
We invest a great deal of time and money to improve employee engagement, yet our efforts often seem to miss the mark. How can that be? Jacob Morgan, one of the world’s foremost authorities on the future of work and employee engagement, uses his ongoing research of 252 organizations to show how short term “adrenaline shot” programs such as job sharing or working from home, aren’t necessarily the answer. He will demonstrate how the world’s top organizations are redesigning work around their people by focusing on three environments: culture, technology, and the physical workspace. He will share why employee experience is the next big area of investment, what the top organizations are doing, and how you can go about creating an Experiential Organization.

Lee Meadows, Ph.D.
Leadership: Funnier now Than it was 2 Days ago!
Gone are the days when some of the predictably funny behavior that employees brought to the workplace was indicative of a linear, sequential approach to getting work done. Leadership was by the book and employees behaved according to the numbers. While things did occur, the leader could always fall back on the Employee Handbook for guidance and decision making. Hard to believe that 18 years ago, we called that ‘work’ in the 20th century! The 21st century has provided the greatest jolt to linear guidance and the specter of employees represents a range of mindset and behavior that is, essentially, setting the tone for the next 30 years. As Leaders, what are you going to do about it? Come and find out how this wide spectrum of employees will provide leaders with some of their best challenges and some of the funnier moments in the work world of the future.
