Awesome panel with Steve Petranik, David Matlin, Lori McCarney, Peter Kim, and Matt Apana. Loved the sports analogies. All about performance and accountability. Photo Credit: Dean Ramos

What a great event to attend. Got a chance to see some familiar faces and network. Took plenty of notes and planning to apply all the knowledge shared during the day. The following are some highlights I interpreted:

Win-Win Negotiations

  • Focus on need vs. want
  • Understanding feelings and cultural differences
  • Understanding the context of what you’re negotiating

Leadership Lessons from the Hokulea

  • Trust is very important to build and it takes time
  • Mentors should help mentees along but when there’s an opportunity, get out of their way so the mentees can learn
  • Reading is not the same as being put through the challenges

Briding the Gap: Diversity is the Key Ingredient

  • When you have a diverse group in your team, it’s just the beginning of the challenges
  • Create the environments for relationships to build naturally
  • Give the opportunity for cultures to not just be around each other but to connect and share
