SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Live Grey today announced Life@Work Brooklyn, an intimate, exploratory experience for leaders who are creating the conditions for human growth in their workplaces. The two day event will feature speakers, workshops, team building exercises, mindfulness practice, and opportunities to connect with peers and colleagues. The event is taking place October 17-18 at 501 Union in Brooklyn, New York. Live Grey will announce 2018 dates and location for its San Francisco Bay Area event soon.
Inspired by invitation-only events that Live Grey has produced for two years running in the Hudson Valley of New York, Life@Work Company Culture Conferences are one part think tank, one part community that continues beyond the events themselves. The events are designed to be immersive, engaging, and interdisciplinary, with a goal of deeply connecting attendees and inspiring them to take meaningful and practical action within their workplace. Geared towards founders, executives, human resource leaders, and cutting-edge thinkers in culture development, previous Life@Work events drew speakers and attendees from innovative businesses large and small, including BuzzFeed, Fiverr, Gartner, General Electric, Google, Herman Miller, Johnson & Johnson, LinkedIn, SoulCycle, Unilever and Warby Parker.
"Our goal is to ignite a conversation that continues beyond the events and into offices and board rooms. Our first two conferences were so well received that attendees were asking for ways to build upon the experience year-round," said Brad Lande, CEO, Live Grey. "Through our immersive sessions and engagement with the community after the events, people who attend Life@Work join a group of big thinkers who share a common goal of using work to grow and develop themselves and others. They recognize that in order to overcome the daunting problems of our times, we must embrace our full humanity and when we do, higher performing teams begin to function at a new level. Ultimately, this is how individuals can find more fulfillment in their work."
Life@Work is an experiential learning journey that invites participants to explore a range of themes including radical people-first approaches, the science of togetherness, diversity and inclusion, designing the employee experience, new ways of structuring teams, and characteristics of next generation leaders.
Quartz will serve as a media partner for the event. Launched in 2012 as a guide to the new global economy for business professionals excited by change, Quartz is now the fastest growing business publication in the world. Like Life@Work, Quartz focuses on the emergence of a new era in management that's found at the intersection of social psychology, science, organizational structure, and business news.
The experience will include opportunities for participants to:
- Connect with colleagues in a different way
- Understand your need to grow, and how to support others to do the same
- Learn to identify unconscious bias and understand its implications in the workplace
- Experience self-organization at scale from the inside-out
- Learn how to lead from a place of connection
- Understand why employees engage and why they disengage through the lens of big data
- Build support structures for productive play
- Learn how to hire the right people for your company and culture
- Encourage a sense of belonging and purpose at work
