Session Description: 

You’ve gathered tons of information from Activate. Ideas swirl around your head. You feel inspired, full of new insights and possibilities.
But we’ve all been to conferences before. We’ve all put conference notes on a shelf. We glance at them months later and realize nothing has changed.

Ready to do something different this time?

At KLC we don’t just energize you, fill you with insights and send you home. With You on the Hot Seat you get targeted peer coaching from fellow conference-goers. We challenge you to leave with a plan of action: What will you try? What will you do? What is your next experiment?

In a lively, interactive peer coaching process, you decide what’s next. You design experiments to make your leadership development more fun, impactful, innovative, creative or transformational. Experience a blend of support and challenge from peers. Set goals and hold yourself accountable. Walk away with ideas, resources, powerful questions and a real commitment to put new ideas into action.

Please come to the session prepared to share at least one idea you want to try when you get back home. Use the blank pages in your conference program to make notes during the conference.
