In this monthly program, you will get an introduction and learn what's different about this model.  The full-day session offered on March 2 will dig deeper into the concepts and focus on applying them.

Program Overview

After more than three decades of working with executives in organizations undergoing transformational change, we have identified both common mistakes being made across industries and best practices that drive successful change.  This presentation provides an overview of our latest findings about both.

There is no reason to be repeating mistakes in leading change that we can so plainly name. With awareness of these issues, you can both avoid them and consciously set up your change efforts to produce your intended results. We will explore each mistake, evaluate the degree of risk your change efforts face if your organization is making them, and what you must do to mitigate that risk. The mistakes undefined and the best practices for avoiding them--paint a very clear picture of how to effectively lead change across the board in your organization. Come learn about what may be blocking your success, and how to ensure greater outcomes from your consulting, leadership, and change efforts.
