Develop an I CAN Mentality at the 2017 Best Practices Conference
| || |
The creative process thrives in a foundation of “Yes, And.” When your team builds on and supports each other’s ideas, they filter and judge less, enabling new approaches to take off and gain traction.
| || |
The principles of “Yes, And” builds trust within your team, creating ensembles who effectively work together to meet a common goal, believing in the idea that “all of us are better than any of us.”
| || |
With a “Yes, And” approach, your team is prepared for any change in direction, focused on how to make it work rather than why it won’t work.
| || |
When your team is aligned with the “Yes, And” philosophy, they look for ways to reach agreement, validating the legitimate concerns of the other person or group while keeping the door open for common ground.
Originating in improv theater, the “Yes, And” approach provides tools to help you become a more compelling leader and a more collaborative follower. Join your fellow information development managers as we learn to overcome common barriers to creativity, collaboration, and change by employing improvisational techniques.
We will be led by keynote speaker, Bob Kulhan, author of the book Getting to “Yes, And”, who will show us how the art of improvisation effectively translates into the business world with powerful results.

Just say “Yes, And!”
What to expect
The CIDM Best Practices conference is the premier annual conference for managers of information development. No other conference in the industry offers you the chance to meet so many managers with the same challenges and the best solutions.
By popular request, we’re offering a hybrid conference approach, combining a single and multi-track system to bring you together for overarching theme sessions (I CAN), followed by simultaneous sessions for you to choose from based on the needs of your team. Other sessions give you the opportunity for one-on-one interaction with your peers to gather advice and best practices about the issues specifically on your mind, as well as some time to see short demonstrations of current projects and tools.
New this year, you’ll be judge for the new Inspire award. Listen to “elevator-pitch” summaries of best practices in play at other companies and vote on the most inspiring for the year.
