Leadership Louisville Board Chair Mike Moll.

Rapid change is impacting businesses of all types with digital progress and culture shifts driven by multiple generations in the workforce. How is your company creating space for diverse ideas from new leaders? As a leader, do you have a healthy way of handling information overload? Do you promote “best thinking practices” among your team?

Today’s leaders must be resilient and have an entrepreneurial mindset to stay competitive in the changing corporate culture. Leadership Louisville Center, home of the city’s experts in adult learning and leadership development, brings this kind of learning to businesses and helps leaders connect with forward-thinking peers. Their annual Leadership Summit is designed to build awareness and skills that are essential to the transforming workplace.

The 2018 Leadership Summit, happening March 8 at The Kentucky Center, is aptly titled “Leading in the New World of Work.” The Summit will welcome leaders at all levels to explore how they can better lead themselves and others. The opening speaker is the dynamic and future-thinking Marcie Merriman, Leader of Digital Practice and “Chief Culture Hacker” for EY. Merriman has garnered global recognition for her expertise in consumer strategy and leadership in maximizing the impact of Gen Z and millennial talent.

Manoush Zomorodi will cap off the day with her tactics for clear thinking in the face of information overload. Zomorodi is the author of Bored and Brilliant: How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Productive and Creative Self, podcast host and “relentless examiner of the modern human condition.” Her expertise will shine a light on how leaders transform “digital anxiety” into self-knowledge, autonomy, and action.

The event will also feature such visionaries as Louisville City FC Coach James O’Connor and newly appointed Humana Foundation CEO Walter Woods. Both men will share their extraordinary paths to developing their own leadership skills and bringing out the same in others. Three leaders will share how they’ve created a company culture recognized as a Best Place to Work, including Scott Colosi, President and CEO of Texas Roadhouse. Interactive workshops will include leading-edge methods for engaging and innovating teams, transformational strategies for living and leading, and a deep dive into inclusive leadership and effective collaboration.

Sponsored by PNC Bank, Humana, EY, Extell Financial Services, Business First, Insider Louisville, Louisville Public Media, Louisville Magazine and MPI Printing, the Summit promises to have something for everyone: high-level networking, Brown-Forman cocktails and mocktails, food for the foodies, virtual reality experiences with unexpected business applications, and countless opportunities to do, see and learn. There is even a surprise live performance on the agenda!
