The Fundamentals of Workplace Strategy: How the Workplace Can Keep Pace with the Business

Description:

What is Workplace Strategy and why is it important to the future of every business?

Workplace Strategy is an emerging profession and plays an ever-increasing role in helping CRE move from cost control to value creation. Our first WE 2019 program is for those seeking to understand this new field, as well as those already practicing or working with practitioners.

Jan Johnson, FIIDA, MCR.s, VP Design and Workplace Resources at Allsteel, will lay out the foundational principles of workplace strategy, and make the case for expanding Workplace Strategy’s scope into other areas of knowledge, processes and tools, using client examples and stories.

This session is the first of a series with WE Hub New England to educate our audience on how do – and should – strategists think.

 

About Jan Johnson:

Jan has spent her career strengthening the correlations between business strategies and the planning, design and management of workplaces; and is a highly respected workplace strategist who frequently writes, speaks and teaches. She has contributed to this emerging profession through important works in the field’s body of knowledge and by shaping and teaching the field’s professional competencies.

April WE:binar - Innovation is a problem of Flow not a lack of Ideas

Date: Thursday, April 18, 2019
Time: 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
Hosted by  Megan Campbell and Emily Dunn

Innovation is a problem of Flow and not a lack of Ideas

 

Description: 

The world is changing faster than ever — there was a time when corporations had to be convinced that innovation is important. Today, every corporation has some form of innovation, either outsourced or in-house. Why then do organizations still feel that they are not innovative enough? What’s the problem?

The key takeaway from the presentation is that Innovation failure is not a result of a lack of ideas or effort, but a lack of understanding of how ideas flow in large systems. In this talk, the speaker will share a few broad insights to consider if you are responsible for understanding innovation flow at your organization.

Speaker Bio:
Liz Elam has built a career – and a thriving business – on the tenet that working one’s way up form the bottom instills tenacity, creates resilience and develops overall excellence. That belief, blended with an innovative spirit and a competitive drive has propelled her to the forefront of the coworking movement. As the founder of the largest coworking conference in the world, Liz has led the Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC) from inception to its current incarnation, expanding from the US to South America, China, Canada, UK, Latin America and Australia along the way. She has taken the stage in Paris Barcelona, Shanghai, Oslo, Bogota and Lisbon and spoken at SXSW on the topic of coworking for several years running.

Liz boldly forayed into the entrepreneurial world in 2010, founding Link Coworking in Austin, Texas and later expanding it into a multi-property enterprise while becoming a prominent voice in the coworking movement. She took the plunge into the then-fledgling concept after 14 years working for Dell, managing multi-million dollar accounts and emerging as one of its top sales executives. Liz sold Link Coworking to Common Desk in the spring of 2019 one of the first successful Coworking exits in the world. Liz’s coworking research has been published in the Harvard Business Review, and her work has garnered press in the Sunday New York Times, CNN, CNBC, Investors Daily, Entrepreneur, Bloomberg, Dwell, Huffington Post, and Inc., as well as the cover of Austin Woman. She proudly served as the first-ever president of the League of Extraordinary Coworking Spaces. When she’s not promoting coworking, Liz is planning her next far-flung excursion, taking 9 plus years of sobriety with her everywhere she goes.

Having long ago overcome her fear of public speaking and more recently kicking cancer to the curb, she takes on speaking engagements from Austin to Oslo; between mentoring and consulting projects in the realms of coworking and design.
