Ph.D. Connections Conference Keynote: Dr. Laura Morgan Roberts-“The Alignment Quest: Aligning Strengths, Values, and Differences to Maximize Our Collective Potential”
Thursday, March 16, 10:30 am to 2:00 pm EDT
Extraordinary leaders commit to creating contexts that engage all of their stakeholders maximally, from positions of strength. This means enabling people with diverse perspectives and backgrounds to bring their best selves to work—leveraging their unique strengths and experiences to make valuable, authentic contributions to their organizations. Laura Morgan Roberts presents evidence-based insight that will help you activate the unrealized potential that diverse perspectives and experiences can bring to your career and to your organization. This session builds upon an appreciative perspective for learning about, learning across, and learning from differences, while fully acknowledging the “best-self blockers” that biases and inequity present for our workplaces and communities. The Alignment Quest™ framework lays out a pathway toward self-actualization, meaningful engagement, impact, and fulfillment.
