Deloitte Webinar: Unlocking Human Potential (The "Roots & Shoots" Framework)

Our co-founder and CEO, Alexi Robichaux, recently joined the Deloitte Center for the Edge’s Duleesha Kulasooriya and Maggie Wooll in a conversation about their paper, Unlocking Human Potential (The “Roots and Shoots” Framework).
We know that the world is changing rapidly, both in global terms and in our day-to-day lives. Constantly evolving technology, social media, and always-on global connectivity give us more options and power than ever to meet our needs and pursue our goals, yet we are struggling to thrive in the very world we’ve created.
Shrinking time spans and an accelerating pace of business make this a time of increasing stress and unpredictability for employers and individuals. We need new practices, and new ways of looking at old practices, to shift the paradigm from stress and survival to excitement and vitality.
Download the paper Unlocking Human Potential or watch the recorded webinar (above) to learn how your organization can take proactive steps from the Roots & Shoots framework. Here are some of the key takeaways:

  • Learn ways to mitigate stress
  • Discover how to recognize unrealized potential
  • Unlearn antiquated ways of operating, so you can reap the rewards of these changes in the years ahead.
