1:30PM- 2:30PM PROGRAM


Speaker: Sarah Noll Wilson


How do we move from a place of protection and exclusion to one of partnership and inclusion? We accomplish this by shifting from being I-Centric to WE-Centric.

Humans thrive when we are included, valued, learning, and contributing in meaningful ways. We thrive when stress and conflict is productive. But thriving is not a solo job. Our success personally and professionally is directly impacted by the quality of our relationships. One way the we increase the quality of our relationships is by increasing the quality of our conversations. We build relationships one conversation at a time and each conversation will impact our level of trust. The problem is most of us spend our time on autopilot, responding from a place of habit and our brains are naturally wired to protect us.

Leveraging bold, new research on the neuroscience of trust, Sarah Noll Wilson will introduce the audience to the practice of Conversational Intelligence®. She will guide you through thinking about trust differently and give practical tips for creating more powerful relationships through conversation.
