Next week is another two-webinar week at Soundview, with a focus on the application of virtues in the workplace. How do we live by the best of intentions toward our work and fellow employees, while not letting those virtues hold us back from great results?
Tipping Sacred Cows – Jake Breeden
Jake Breeden starts us off with concepts from his recent book Tipping Sacred Cows. At our webinar on June 25th Jake will discuss the 7 virtues of Balance, Collaboration, Creativity, Excellence, Fairness, Passion and Preparation. By helping us see the dark side of virtues like these, Breeden will reveal hidden traps that lie between good intentions and great results, clearing a path for leaders — and anyone in the workplace — to finally realize their full potential.
As an educator, author, and keynote speaker, Jake Breeden gives you new ways of seeing your world. Breeden teaches as part of the Global Faculty for Duke Corporate Education – the world’s top ranked provider of custom corporate education. He has taught, coached, challenged and provoked leaders at Google, IBM, Cisco, Microsoft, OppenheimerFunds, Starbucks, Sprint, Deloitte and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
A Revolutionary Approach to Success – Adam Grant
Our Soundview Live webinar on June 27th will be with Adam Grant, author of Give and Take. Grant takes a different view of virtues in the workplace. For generations, we have focused on the individual drivers of success: passion, hard work, talent, and luck. But in today’s dramatically reconfigured world, success is increasingly dependent on how we interact with others. Grant illuminates what effective networking, collaboration, influence, negotiation, and leadership skills have in common.
Adam Grant is the youngest tenured professor at Wharton. He has been recognized as Wharton’s single-highest-rated teacher, one of BusinessWeek’s favorite professors, and one of the world’s 40 best business professors under 40. Previously, he was a record-setting advertising director at Let’s Go Publications, an All-American springboard diver, and a professional magician.
So plan to join us for these two events, to hear the provocative views of these authors on virtues in the workplace. We guarantee that you will come away with a fresh perspective on how to work with others and be successful.
