The Inside Story of How to Drive Strategic Initiatives

It's sometimes said that there is no constant but change.

With smart phones, apps for everything, and self-driving cars on the horizon, the business world seems to be changing faster than ever. For most organizations, this is a scary time. It seems certain that your industry will be disrupted, although it's hard to know how or when.

With all this change on the outside, however, change from the inside seems harder than ever. People cling to habits and routines, and even when the wolf is at the door, it seems that people resist change, even when everyone knows it's necessary.

It's hard enough to instigate change from the top, but what if you're not the CEO? What if you're somewhere in the middle? What can you do?

It turns out there's a lot you can do. Dave Gray will show you how to navigate the complex underlying social dynamics in organizations, so you can find the doorways that will lead to truly meaningful change.

What You Will Learn

  • Why people argue about things that seem obvious
  • Four illusions that keep people stuck in their current mindset
  • Why you can never be objective about your role in change
  • Why behavior is the last thing you should focus on changing
  • How to find the doorways that will lead to real, meaningful change

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
