    Lynda Gratton Keynote Topics

    Putting your people at the heart of your firm’s business and people strategy will help your organisation thrive. This means defining and implementing a culture and processes that promote energy and human potential.

    People Strategy has been a key focus of my work since the 1990s. I’ve written two books and a variety of articles which look at people strategy and alignment issues, the structure of HR, and performance management.

    Leaders are under increasing pressure. Trust in corporations is on the decline, and ever more vocal citizens are forming themselves into worldwide communities of interest to influence corporate policy. And yet, while these pressures may be sweeping away some of the leadership capabilities we hold dear, they clear the way for new ideas about what leadership can and should be.

    I’m fascinated by the role of cooperation in innovation. For over a decade this was a major focus of research and thanks to a significant grant from the Singapore Government I was able to fully understand cooperation and develop a series of cooperative tools.

    Cooperation and co-creation are fundamental to corporate and individual purpose and success. There are three key elements:

    1. The corporation has a cooperative culture deliberately built through practices and processes.
    2. There are rich and diverse networks which allow ideas to move freely.
    3. There is a purpose that energises and ignites – a Hot Spot.

    What will our working lives look like 20 years from now? What should we be preparing for? How will we be working? Where will we be working? Who will we be working with?
