Repeated from Tuesday at 10:45 a.m.

Our research shows a direct connection between accountability and bottom line results. While engaging our employees is critical, it isn't enough. Engagement without accountability is chaos. Join Cy Wakeman as she challenges conventional HR wisdom with evidence-based research, revealing the major flaws in the logic supporting traditional talent programs and initiatives, and provides techniques for hardwiring the magic competency of accountability throughout your team and your organization. This session will help you:

  • Determine the reasons the current engagement and leadership models are failing and hurting HR’s credibility in your organization.
  • Understand ways to drive from business strategy to results by changing from an employee performance to employee value model. 
  • Identify the true drivers of engagement and employee performance.
  • Adapt and reinvent employee satisfaction survey methods to create a culture of alignment, buy-in and full use of talent to ensure accountability and better engaged employees.

Cy Wakeman


Cy Wakeman is a drama researcher, global thought-leader, and New York Times best-selling author who is recognized for cultivating a counter-intuitive, reality-based approach to leadership. Backed by 20 years of experience, Wakeman’s philosophy offers a new lens through which employees and executives alike, can shift their attention inward, sharpen their focus on personal accountability, and uncover their natural state of innovation simply by ditching the drama.

Deemed “the secret weapon to restoring sanity to the workplace,” Wakeman has helped companies such as Google, Facebook, NASA, Pfizer, Bank of America, and United Healthcare learn to harness energy wasted in workplace drama and reinvest that effort into achieving profound business results.
