Leadership: Currency, Change, and Creating a Powerful Presence

Opening General Session

Carla Harris, Vice Chairman of Morgan Stanley, inspired us in the Opening General Session of Congress Xstream with “Carla’s Pearls” but did you know she is also a gospel recording artist, and author of two books? In this presentation, Harris shares the components of positioning yourself to maximize success as a leader in your current career environment or in the environment you desire. The concepts of performance currency vs. relationship currency are explored, as well as how to manage change, create change, and become an impactful and influential leader.

What I Learned From 100 Days of Rejection

Closing General Session

Jia Jiang knows first-hand how the fear of rejection can hold us back. Our natural tendency to avoid being rejected at all costs can be detrimental to our businesses, our careers, and our lives. Determined to change and confront that fear, Jia takes us down a path where rejection, instead of being avoided, is deliberately and actively sought after. He asked complete strangers questions like, “Can I borrow $100? Can I speak over your store’s intercom? Can I get a burger refill?” The surprising answers led him to a whole new world. Jia’s insights will help you overcome your fear of rejection and create opportunities you have never imagined.
