 Keynote Speaker

University of Louisville alum and former Starbucks executive vice president and chief partner officer, Lucy Helm, will be joining us to speak. As chief partner officer, Lucy served as the head of Starbucks Partner Resources (Human Resources) Organization, leading all aspects of hiring, pay, recognition, diversity & inclusion, and leadership development for hundreds of thousands Starbucks partners (employees) around the globe. 

Working Genius

The Six Types of Working Genius is a model and an assessment tool that allows anyone—CEOs, teachers, factory supervisors, college students—to identify their gifts and limitations so they can maximize their satisfaction and success in any kind of work they do. In thirty minutes, someone can radically alter their day-to-day job fulfillment or even their career direction. What a difference that can make in a person’s life. All six are necessary ingredients for success - and no one person can embody them all, which is why teamwork is so important.

 Take the quick and easy Working Genius assessment – just 10 minutes! – and bring your results with you to the conference. This will be sent to registered attendees prior to the conference. During a fast-paced session, Working Genius facilitators will provide an overview and help you understand how to make sense of your individual Geniuses, and how to leverage Working Genius for a team.

 In follow-up breakout groups, you’ll get a chance to dig in, consider how to best use your Genius in a team, and develop next steps for making the most of your areas of Working Genius!
