  • Opening General Session: The Strengths Revolution


    Speaker(s)

    Marcus Buckingham, New York Times Best-Selling Author, Researcher, and Founder of the Strengths Revolution

    Kristy Fercho, 2022 MBA Chair; Executive Vice President & Head of Home Lending, Wells Fargo

    Marcus Buckingham is an authority on what the world’s most effective leaders and highest-performing people do differently. His “Strengths Revolution” started, as all revolutions do, with the simplest of insights: when employees spend most of their time using their greatest talents and engaged in their favorite tasks, both they and their organizations win. In this session, learn to focus on cultivating your employees’ strengths, not just improving on their weaknesses, and see a dramatic increase in efficiency and productivity, including better turnover rates, customer satisfaction, profits, and resiliency. Marcus’s strengths-based approach is a win/win scenario that, without exaggeration, will define the future of work.
