Thriving in Change

One of the biggest challenges in business today is how to create a management system that includes a realistic and quality plan for the new vision, a way to execute the plan so everyone buys into it, and build it so the “new changes stick.”

The world appears to be changing faster than the people can react.  Many organizations, groups and companies previously on top have failed to maintain their edge, and many have problems or have gone out of business.

The competitive landscape demands a culture of fast action, on-going improvement, and being better than the competition, to generate results, get things done and improve the quality of the operation and service to a higher level.

To navigate this challenge requires understanding of the values of the organization, the people, the boundaries of the new marketplace, challenges and wasted resources and energies that develop in organizations, companies and groups, draining them of productivity and profitability

For: Today’s leaders, managers and anyone employed in a company or organization that wants and needs to survive and thrive in the new global economy.

Topics Covered:

  • Understand use eight key steps for creating change in an Organization
  • Understand trends that managers must understand in order to not just survive but thrive and be ahead of the competition.
  • Leaders and managers are challenged to see change as the on-going opportunity and to generate a work environment and mindset of progress.
  • Don’t give up or let up

Applications: HR, Team Development, Change Management, Innovation, Leadership Development, Positive Culture, shaping your future

These programs can be customized for your group and last from sixty minutes in a keynote format and up to three hours in an interactive format.
