    Chief Strategy Officer


Join Mike Sweeney, Chief Strategy Officer at RallyBright for insights on building inclusive, resilient, high-performing Teams. We’ll highlight research on the positive impact women leaders have on team performance and assess the counter-intuitive challenges with early career confidence and imposter syndrome. We’ll explore how to use data and targeted support to open conversations designed to improve team performance.

We’ll touch on how the (over) abundance of HR tech misses the mark on leadership development because they do not address an organization’s biggest impact driver – teams. And we’ll share insights from our work with teams ranging from Fortune 50 executives to small startups on how they are addressing challenges in a volatile hybrid world. We might even hint about the rise of NHTs (non-human teammates) augmenting your teams.

Key Takeaways:

  • Highlights from research on the positive impact women leaders have on teams (yet the challenge of low early career confidence)
  • Practical approaches to using data to open the door to developing team resilience (with leaders who may not typically engage in the ‘soft stuff’)
  • Top tips for addressing challenges in uncertain times based on our work with technology teams

This session is for… you if you are a CEO/COO of a company with many teams, a team leader, or an HR/L&D professional of a small to medium-sized company.
