Nour Health NXT Fireside Chat: U.S. Health Systems in Crisis

Some leaders don't believe many will survive the current economic crater, as evident by layoffs and furloughs of healthcare workers!

Agile Alignment: Redefining The Association Member Experience
What is your toughest challenge right now? Reimagining member-driven and profitable events…you’re not alone. In-person meetings account for more than 25% of the average association’s annual revenue. In December 2019, 45% of respondents to the Looking Forward™ 2020 survey, indicated they were very concerned about member attendance at their meetings or tradeshows - and this was BEFORE the COVID-19 pandemic.
The agile alignment of nonprofit organizations is vital given today’s unprecedented circumstances and there is no greater need for agile alignment then events. In this deep dive session, David Nour, author of best-selling books Relationship Economics, Co-Create, and the forthcoming Curve Benders, and association management expert and Certified Association Executive, Elisa Pratt of Brewer Pratt Solutions, will share practical, pragmatic strategies to redefine the meeting and conference experience for association members.
Business Over Breakfast with Emory Executive Education Series
What if you were able to tell your team or organization's story via a single image? How about your current mission-critical daily huddles - could they benefit from greater agility and alignment? Instead of Death by PowerPoint, a report, or a spreadsheet, what if you could convey stories that were visual and engaging? We believe the human mind's ability to consume and process visual information 60,000 faster than text or numbers, maybe a viable path to clear, concise, and consistent communication. Welcome to Strategy Visualization and Agile Alignment.
This highly interactive session will introduce how to simplify your vision and the path to get there, how to better understand your target audience, and tell a more engaging and impactful story. In this session, Affiliate Faculty David Nour and Creative Director Lin Wilson will share a glimpse into their upcoming Virtual Strategy Visualization and Agile Alignment course at Emory Executive Education on June 9+10.
Co-Create: How Collaboration Will Fuel The Field Service New Norm in COVID-19 World
Field technicians are a critical asset in the global tech-enabled infrastructure. From HVAC systems to internet technology pipelines, industrial machinery, elevators/escalators, and field automation deployed in a vast array of industries. If the CO-19 Pandemic persists, how will they be able to reach their customers and service the parts, repairs, and upgrades necessary to keep our economic engine moving forward?
David Nour, author of best-selling books Relationship Economics, Co-Create, and the forthcoming Curve Benders, and John Carroll, CEO of ServiceCouncil have an interactive discussion. They'll cover both the challenges and opportunities facing service leaders, their remote teams, and the Post-CO19 New Norms in field maintenance operations.
Nour Virtual Fireside Chat with Hal Gregersen - Right Questions
Peter Drucker once said, "The important and critical job is never to find the right answer, it is to find the right questions. For there are few things as useless, if not dangerous, as the right answer to the wrong question."
Drucker’s keen insight about the power of questions has long been a guiding inspiration for Hal Gregersen. An innovation and leadership guru, Hal is Executive Director of the MIT Leadership Center and Senior Lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management. While Hal’s expertise expands across all areas of innovative leadership, asking the right questions cuts deeply across all of his work. He challenges organizations and individuals to question the way we think and act to build a better, more creative world.
Most of us have never seen the level of global uncertainty that CO19 has created. When we’re facing so many unknowns, there are few answers and that’s the challenge. Which puts an even greater emphasis on the power of questions. In times like this, perhaps more than ever, better questions can be keys to unlocking better answers.
Disruptive Agility: Five Accelerators of Agile Leadership
Our leadership context has changed in profound ways. Yet, we are leading from the same mindset and biology as the industrial age. This is what makes leadership in disruption so challenging for each of us.
Here are five big challenges of leading in disruption:
Human biology has not caught up to the pace of change.
High change and unpredictability require a different type of learning
Leading in disruption requires creating trust quickly in complex teams.
We are increasingly solving problems that require shared ownership and action.
We need each of us to grow rapidly in change & enable those around us to do the same to maximize the potential of our efforts.
Join David Nour, author of best-selling books Relationship Economics, Co-Create, and the forthcoming Curve Benders, and Henna Inam, CEO of Transformational Leadership and author of Wired for Authenticity, as they discuss five unique agilities (learning, neuro-emotional, trust, decision, and stakeholder), the required mindset shift, and specific tools and practices to develop your leadership agility.
Storytelling Leader: New Competency for the Post-CO19 World
Identity is the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves. And when organizations face a crisis, identity emerges as an urgent conversation. Who are we? Who are we NOW? Whom will we be after all of this? If you’re a leader, you’re the narrator. Your urgent task is to help your system make sense of who we are, where we are, and what needs to happen next.
In this webinar, Davids Nour and Hutchens share from their experiences in working with Fortune 500 leaders all around the world to invest in their relationships, tell stories and create institutional meaning. They explore the strategic narratives you should be telling now to make sense of these unprecedented times… and align your team for innovation and action.
The Evolution of the Association Strategy and Business Model
Many believe COVID-19 is here to stay for the foreseeable 12-18 months. So, how does that impact the fundamental value and long-term viability of an association strategy and business model? If members are no longer able to physically meet, and certainly have access to resources outside their industry association, will they doubt the value of remaining active members?
And what should the evolution of the association, and association management company strategy and business model look like? What are the enablers of this evolution, and which critical factors could deter the association model to remain relevant?
David Nour, author of best-selling books Relationship Economics, Co-Create, and the forthcoming Curve Benders, and Elisa Pratt of Brewer Pratt Solutions, discuss how Associations, and Association Management Companies must evolve to remain relevant.
Secret Behind Crisis Leadership
If you’ve ever tackled a key challenge or an opportunity, only to find out half-way there that there is no one following you, you understand that crisis leadership is all about relationships.
From a foundation of trust to clarity of the message, and the authenticity of the messenger, the likely leader, must be believed before she/he can be believed-in. You want others to follow you through the current crisis? Let’s take a closer look at the depth and breadth of your strategic relationships amid the crisis and the ten attributes of your brand.
BTW, your strategy became obsolete last month when the global economy shut down! Crisis leaders are assessing and re-assessing their strategic priorities on a daily basis, making simple, clear, consistent communication more critical.

Big Picture Thinking for Dental Laboratories Post COVID-19
CO-19 has pushed many "elective" procedures to the back of the line. So, how do Dental Labs and Dental Practices engage patients in need of dental care? And how long can those patients fend for themselves when our physical proximity is challenged?
Join David Nour, author of best-selling books Relationship Economics, Co-Create, and the forthcoming Curve Benders, and the NADL Executive Committee Members for a panel discussion. They'll cover practical, pragmatic ideas to protect/generate revenue in the short-term, while you consider fundamental shifts to your capabilities, talent, and business model for mid-term pivots.
There is no playbook for our current market dynamics. The unprecedented speed of this global pandemic is creating organizational shock and uncertainty. Learnings, shared internally, broadly distributed, will be vital to restoring, growing, and improving your footprint vs. weaker competitors.
What if you were able to tell a story or share actionable information via a single image? Instead of Death by PowerPoint, a report, or a spreadsheet, what if you could convey stories that were visual and engaging? We believe the human mind's ability to consume and process visual information 60,000 faster than text or numbers, maybe a viable path to clear, concise, and consistent communication.

Nour on Relationship-Centric Growth/Sales Success
In 2020, asking a sophisticated B2B buyer "what keeps you up at night," is likely to get you thrown out of their office. It's intellectually lazy and demonstrates zero due diligence, ability to think and synthesize, or intelligently engage. When engaging B2B buyers, you need to bring your strategic relationship development A-game! Unless you've been living in a cave, COVID-19 is also a perceived storm at the moment for many organizations.
So, how do you elevate yourself above the market noise to engage and influence their thinking and call to action? I believe regardless of whatever product/service we sell, we are all fundamentally in the relationship business. So, I want to show you how to become more effective and impactful in reaching new prospective buyers. And how to convert more contacts into value-based relationships.
This highly interactive online roundtable will focus on converting everyday contacts you need to succeed into strategic relationships. I'll share our research from 10,000+ B2B professionals who have taken our Relationship Economics Quiz, what they're looking for in your approach, what works and what doesn't. We'll cover phases of strategic buyer relationships, so you accelerate your relationship success from now to next. I'll also share some ideas on how to get creative with your strategic relationships, in the midst of the COVID-19 concerns. Come join us.
The Power of Strategy Visualization
We live in an on-demand society. Whether talking about food, entertainment, or information, people want things to be simple, easy, and fast. In both our personal and professional lives, our ability to engage and influence others is dependent on how quickly and easily we can convey information on which they can take action.
What if you were able to tell a story or share actionable information via a single image? Instead of Death by PowerPoint, a report or a spreadsheet, what if you could convey stories that were visual and engaging?
