Kim Moke, Thought Leader, Expert & Global Changemaker on Executive Leadership

Kim Moke as a global changemaker on executive leadership will guide us to her specially designed Arts meet Business seminars that incorporate doing, experimentation and courage to reinforce innovative communication and self-discovery.
To excel in leadership, leaders must start with themselves and need to know WHO they are. Building awareness will teach leaders about change and open communication to accept the challenge of managing different personalities, genders, backgrounds, and age.

13:00 – 13:40 CET : HOTSPOT SESSION
Growth vs. Unequal Growth – Balancing Between the Love for Customers and Employees
David Toborek, Head of Digital at EAT HAPPY GROUP

With the workforce finding itself in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, work has transformed at an unexpected pace through new technologies such as artificial intelligence, advanced robotics and cognitive automation. Advanced analytics and the Internet of Things enhance exponentially, and everything needs to become faster. But with process optimization mostly being implemented from top to bottom, how can we ensure that people responsible to produce and deliver the goods and services can keep up?
David Toborek as Head of Digital at the EAT HAPPY GROUP will zoom with us into this very special conflict of objectives:

    • Companies announcing programs to further focus on customer satisfaction and attention amidst the battle for shrinking markets
    • How can the mismatch between the available workforce and the skills required for the vacancies be addressed without creating unreasonable working conditions?
    • When do we start exploring what’s possible for the people in future jobs?

14:00 – 14:50 CET : PANEL DISCUSSION – BOARDROOM BANTER
How Leaders can Give People a Voice
Kim Moke, Thought Leader, Expert & Global Changemaker on Executive Leadership

Misel Ahom, Global Director Diversity & Inclusion at Beiersdorf
David Toborek, Head of Digital at EAT HAPPY GROUP

Raising concerns, complaints, ideas and other sensitive issues can cause great anxiety for some employees. It is important for managers to create a culture where employees feel encouraged to speak up. The experiences employees have with the company culture influence much of their decision-making in this regard. According to research by Amy C. Edmondson (book “The Fearless Organization”), the leader must first set the tone. They need to be clear about the “why,” and it always needs to be authentic.
In this panel discussion we bring our speakers of the day back on the stage to go into a deep dive discussion, or even a so-called “boardroom banter”. We will discuss the following rules of open communication amongst others together before we go further in our Break-Out Discussions and continue the conversation in smaller groups:

    • Be sincere, authentic, and caring
    • Set clear expectations and boundaries around norms
    • Build an inclusive culture of communication and provide opportunities for feedback
    • Respond quickly, respectfully, and visibly to a current issue

15:15 – 16:15 CET : PEER-TO-PEER BREAK OUT DISCUSSIONS

During these in-depth discussions, we can interact and receive immediate feedback from peers on various topics. The participation and contribution of each participant is a powerful tool to empower and support each other as leaders.
