Speech Topics


The Reductive Mindset: Achieving Optimal Results Using the Tools of WhiteSpace

Employees today face many pressures in the Age of Overload: doing more with less, accelerating speed and the global 24/7 demands of always being ON. They’re fooled into thinking they’re more productive than ever. But is that true?

Overloaded populations are used to their discomfort. But upon further investigation, it’s clear that their companies are suffering from one or more deficits. Sometimes it’s a quantity problem; you hear complaints about headcount and bandwidth. Sometimes it’s a quality issue; work level is slipping, and there’s no time to think high-altitude thoughts. Or it’s a sustainability issue; folks are surviving but asking, “How long can we keep this up?”

In this program, we consider a different path, one where a reductive lens helps pare back busyness and make room to reclaim and effectively use WhiteSpace. Also featured is actionable content that combats The Tools that Turn on You. These are support systems and devices that promise to improve our work style. In reality, they tend to defy boundaries, hijacking time and resources — think email, meetings, decks and more.

Igniting the Thoughtful Mind: How to Use WhiteSpace to Turbocharge Creativity

Is your company tasking you to be creative and innovative without providing the time to do it? You are not alone. Exertion has replaced thought. Innovation and creativity wither before an ever-increasing culture of complexity. But what if game-changing, breakthrough ideas are not inclined to battle through your crowded schedule and buzzing brain? What if they require WhiteSpace, or open fluid time, in order to grace us with their presence?

In this presentation, Juliet Funt asks critical questions behind the creative process: Is there a dial that can be adjusted back and forth from activity to creative receptivity? How would an adjustment of that dial affect the output of you and your teams?

This journey also chronicles tactics of the greatest creative thinkers in both business and other media, shining a light on the frameworks and processes they employ. Lastly, we’ll broaden our discussion to explore the Invisible Habits of Excellence, a constellation of internal behaviors related to many varieties of inward and outward thought.

Activity is Not Productivity: Raising Engagement Through Reclaiming WhiteSpace
