Daniel Pink on Beyond Resilience: A New Path to a Strong Culture

Friday, March 3, 2023 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. PST

Event Overview

In this provocative and exclusive discussion with Vistage VP of Research Anne Petrik, No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Daniel Pink offers a fresh set of strategies. Pink will draw on an unprecedented two-year study of our most misunderstood emotion: regret.

As the world emerges from the pandemic, organizations everywhere are reexamining their operations and rethinking their priorities.

What do they stand for? How should they navigate what comes next? And how might they build cultures where people can do their best work and be their best selves?

He will show that ignoring or rejecting regrets is a colossal mistake. Instead, confronting regrets systematically can deliver an array of organizational benefits. It can sharpen leaders’ decisions, speed learning and development, and boost individual and team performance.

In particular, he will show how the four core regrets shared by people around the world contain the seeds of a reimagined and more powerful corporate culture.

By understanding what people regret the most, we can learn what they value the most — and that can help organizations of every kind attract top talent, deepen employee engagement, and strengthen loyalty and commitment.

With Pink’s trademark blend of big ideas and smart takeaways, compelling stories and sharp humor, this presentation provides an urgent and inspiring map for flourishing in unpredictable times.

You will learn:

  • How to anticipate — and avoid — the most significant organizational regrets,
  • How to transform existing regrets into a positive force and a coherent culture,
  • Why regrets of inaction outnumber regrets of action — and how to enlist that insight to spark innovation,
  • Why doing the right thing is more important to employees than most C-Suite executives understand — and why, in this fraught moment, being a good organization can pave the way to becoming a great organization.
