The marketplace is changing dramatically and dynamically. Few industries and individuals will be exempt. We can’t avoid it, and it’s fatal to ignore it. But, fear and avoidance is no way to address change. We have to find and create positive outcomes going forward.

Preparing for change can be complicated, especially in the context of a large organization. The markets are always in flux, and when a new technology or system rolls around… BOOM… industries are thrown on their head and companies scramble to figure everything out.

Sometimes, these companies scramble themselves into devastation. Why? Because their change preparedness systems were either lacking or nonexistent.

While many articles, books, and talks strike fear into audiences about problems impacting the changing business landscape, Laura’s webinar offers real-world solutions with a positive impact… in a refreshing and inspiring way.

Today, HR, L&D, Strategy, and OD professionals are revamping their systems to better prepare their organizations utilizing innovative tools available to them.

In this session, Laura will share the stories of several innovative leaders who are paving the road to a positive future in very strategic and innovative ways, demonstrate steps to help turn your organization’s focus around, and provide stories of how organizations have implemented this successful strategy to move the needle on their collective capacity to change. Leaders will walk away with a clear method of how to lead change and create a positive future for themselves and their team.

When it comes to change, most leaders and organizations focus on structures, processes, and systems. Few even recognize that without an individual and collective mindset for change and innovation their best efforts will fail, especially now.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What is getting in the way of positive change and innovation
  • The steps to take to be a change champion
  • How to create a strategic plan that includes facilitated discussion, coaching, microlearning, and accountability, all spaced over time
  • Who will help you and who will not
  • How to assemble ambassadors to support your efforts
  • How to strategically plan to move the needle with your leaders first, then their team members
  • How to survey and measure outcomes
