    • Breakout Track
    Many SOF service members are leaving service with a collection of health issues: chronic pain, obstructive sleep apnea, substance abuse, depression, endocrine dysfunction, and many other social, physical, or mental health related challenges. Some refer to this as “operator syndrome”; however, medical professionals refer to it as the effects of a high allostatic load–or chronic stress. This panel will discuss this affliction and the latest research and treatments.
    • Professional Development Track
    Is your talented staff drowning in meetings, emails, briefs, and projects? Military teams are rightly aggressive in their goals but often are so swept up by the pace that they lose the critical gear of intentionality and thoughtfulness. Additionally, the constant frenzy and overwhelming weight of the tasks can wear down even committed individuals, eroding innovation, work/life balance, culture, and morale. Prioritization is the wrong tool to fix this problem. What these teams need is reduction - sophisticated methods of reducing and streamlining the touchpoints of work to add more efficiency and effectiveness. This session offers a roadmap to this shift, providing practical tools, strategies, and frameworks to reevaluate, prioritize, and skinny down the task pile by ruthlessly eliminating unnecessary and non-value-adding touchpoints of the day.
    • Professional Development Track

    Many countries have established joint special operations commands since U.S. Special Operations Command was formed in 1987. Some have even established multinational organizations in order to share capabilities and leverage comparative advantages. Learn from a diverse panel of experienced SOF leaders as to how joint SOF commands present both opportunities and challenges.
