  • Are Great Employees Overrated?

    by George Anders, Michael Schrage, Laurie Ruettimann, Eric Hellweg and Roy Bahat

    Who is worth more — one amazing employee or one hundred adequate ones? You've heard about the war for talent. If your business is looking to take over the world (or just your industry), how do you first build your talent pool? Do you fill your ranks with free-agent superstars, or foster a team of people whose names will never make the marquee, but are skilled enough to make your company a success? Your choice has implications for your culture, and your bottom line. This debate kicked up a tremendous response on the Harvard Business Review's website (hbr.org), but the jury is still out. What makes the world go 'round — individual brilliance or group genius?

    At 5:00pm to 6:00pm, Sunday 11th March

    In Brazos, Marriott Courtyard Austin Downtown/Convention Center

  • Moms vs. Management: Parents Make AWESOME Managers

    by Margaret Stewart, Mike Tschudy, Lourdes Alba and Maria Giudice

    How many books on management have your read and how many parenting manuals and apps have you downloaded since your kids arrived on the scene? How much of what you’ve learned has been “on the job” of parenting — and all the multi-tasking and emotional resilience that requires? Have you ever thought to apply those same techniques to managing clients or people inside your own organization?

    Hear a light-hearted conversation from our experts on techniques they’ve used and how to make the best of both worlds. Learn about how the principles of raising children directly apply to being a good manager of people. Topics may include:

    • Parallel play is not real play — challenges of cooperation, collaboration and negotiation
    • Use your inside voice — the importance of communication and active listening
    • No means no — applying praise, understanding consequences and other disciplinary measures
    • You can’t have it all — challenges of working parents towards achieving a healthy live/work balance

    At 12:30pm to 1:30pm, Monday 12th March

    In Brazos, Marriott Courtyard Austin Downtown/Convention Center
