ZingTrain Speaker Series: Wayne Baker

We’ve known Professor Wayne Baker for so long that we sometimes take his scholarly accomplishments for granted. Which is why we’re so excited to be able to feature him as a speaker this season – so we can revisit his accomplishments, but more importantly, so we can share with you what is, perhaps, his most exciting work yet.
In this session of the Speaker Series, Wayne will talk about Mark Twain, the Apollo moon landing, Lady Justice, Olympic medals, and his family sailboat. What? Yes! The session will be an in-depth exploration of America’s core values through iconic images, personal stories, and colorful anecdotes. It will include a short activity to identify and talk about core values. And best of all, Professor Baker will reveal the surprising findings from his national surveys: That Americans share 10 core values. That a broad common ground still exists in America. Wayne will conclude the session by sharing why an organizational values alignment is critical and how you can uncover the values in yours. Wednesday, December 3, 8-930am.
