Trekking to the Bottom of the Top of the World

We've all got those items on our "bucket list" that we honestly wonder if we'll ever get to. "Hike up to Mt Everest" was on Allen's. He's been fascinated with the highest point on Earth for years, but never really thought he'd go there.

Guess what... He went. And you can, too! During this lighthearted talk, Allen will share the surprisingly-easy steps he took to get ready, and the un-surprising-difficult steps he took to make it up the Khumbu Valley. https://mbcaustin.org/event-5460737

About our speaker:

Allen Biehl is a software seller during the week, and an intrepid explorer of Austin’s hiking trails on the weekends (and some evenings). He grew up an Army brat and so explored various parts of the planet before he was 15. Now he’s on a quest to visit as many mountains as he can lay feet upon.

From abortion to affirmative action, gun control to greenhouse gas emissions, and redistricting to religious liberty, the Supreme Court has come to play a central role in virtually every major contemporary public policy debate. And in the last six years, in particular, the Court’s Republican majority has shaped those debates through a growing series of unsigned and unexplained orders—taking more and more advantage of what one conservative scholar in 2015 dubbed “the shadow docket,” the procedural case-management orders that comprise 99% of the Supreme Court’s overall output. But as Professor Stephen Vladeck demonstrates in his new book, the shadow docket is not just a source of problematic behavior by the current justices; it’s central to how the Supreme Court has been given—and has taken—so much power from the political branches over the past century, in marked contrast to the more modest (and more closely regulated) Court contemplated by the Constitution’s drafters. Indeed, as Vladeck explains, it is impossible to understand the increasingly contested role that the Supreme Court plays in American society today without understanding both the history and current scope of the shadow docket. And that understanding is critical not only to clarify exactly what is unique about the current Court’s behavior; it is a necessary predicate to pursuing the kinds of reforms that the Supreme Court truly needs.

Leaders are bombarded with meetings to attend, fires to put out, and problems to get in front of. However, recent challenges around employee engagement, burnout, and top-talent retention make it clear that too often leaders can lose sight of the single most important priority, namely, their people. Join Bobby as he provides leaders with practical tools for prioritizing the well-being of those entrusted to them. In doing so, leaders will discover how a people-first approach can bring about sustained vitality and growth to the entire organization.
