The Poet's Keys: A Creative Approach to Unlocking the Doors to Change


The best leaders are innovators; people who are willing to disrupt the status quo in order to create a better reality for their teams, their industries, or themselves. But we all face barriers to growth that manifest through our various comfort zones - and without reliable tools to spark transformation, the doors to change are as good as locked. In this keynote performance, former Googler and Stanford poet Tucker Bryant shares a surprising truth about how leveraging the mindsets poets call on to keep their craft in a state of evolution can empower leaders to innovate in the areas of our work that matter most.
