Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Lead a Richer Life
Presenter: Stew Friedman
By working with leading researchers from the best global business schools, we can tap into the latest understanding of research in timely topical areas such as mindfulness. Stew Friedman, University of Pennsylvania Wharton Business School professor and founding director of the Wharton Leadership Program, will refute the idea that the more we strive to win on one dimension, the more we sacrifice performance and satisfaction in the other three: family, community, and private self.

Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World
Presenter: Cal Newport
Most of us are rapidly becoming digital maximalists due to our inability to untether ourselves from the heavy use of devices such as smartphones. Cal Newport, associate professor of computer science at Georgetown University and the author of five books, including Deep Work, will introduce the concept of digital minimalism, a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives. Cal will explain how common-sense tips such as turning off notifications or occasional rituals like observing a digital sabbath don't go far enough in helping us take back control of our technological lives while the demands of family, friends and work complicate attempts to unplug completely.

The Culture Code: The New Science of Successful Groups
