6:00 - 8:00 PM Presentation and Discussion - Join us as we examine the first tenant of Conscious Capitalism, Higher Purpose. Rosie Ward will be present, Purpose: A Key Tenant for Successful, Future-Ready Organizations. There is a revolution occurring in the business world today where enlightened leaders recognize what it means to thrive in today’s VUCA world, an environment that is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. It is an environment that is changing dramatically, where disruption is the norm and organizations are more overwhelmed than ever. Thriving in this new reality requires intentionally aligning people with a common purpose. In his book, Start with WHY, Simon Sinek suggests that every business should have a clear purpose, cause or belief that transcends making money and inspires, engaged and energizes its stakeholders. A clear compelling purpose can function like a lighthouse, cutting through the fog and providing a path and vision toward a common goal. This session will explore Higher Purpose - one of the four key pillars of Conscious Capitalism. We will examine why purpose matters and how businesses can leverage it to foster alignment and growth.
Dr. Rosie Ward’s mission started when nearly 20 years ago she experienced firsthand the ill effects of working in a toxic work environment and found her wellbeing eroding. Since then, she has worked tirelessly to find a solution, so this experience is no longer the norm. As a consultant, coach, author and one of the top speakers in the country on organizational and employee wellbeing, she is sought-after to help re-humanize workplaces so that people are freed, fueled and inspired to bring their best selves to work – and home – each day.
Rosie serves as CEO and co-founder of Salveo Partners, LLC, a professional consulting and training company focused on equipping organizations to find success while putting people back at the forefront of their business. They focus on leveraging The Fusion (the inextricable interconnectedness of organizational and employee wellbeing) to help transform workplaces and support people in integrating their personal and professional lives. Her book, How to Build a Thriving Culture at Work: Featuring the 7 Points of Transformation, co-authored with her business partner, Dr. Jon Robison, has served as a blueprint for hundreds of organizations to break past old, outdated paradigms and re-humanize their workplace. They are currently writing their new book, Re-Humanizing the Workplace…future-proofing your organization while restoring hope, wellbeing and performance, which will be published by Conscious Capitalism Press in late 2019.
Often referred to as a “Ph.D. with a personality,” Rosie’s energy fills a room. Her presentations both challenge and inspire audiences to think differently about what it takes for people to become the best version of themselves and for organizations to foster their growth and development. She currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband and son.
