Every organization that’s not changing is likely headed in the wrong direction. Leadership is, at its core, about driving change in the organization – in the way it conducts business, in the way it competes, and most importantly, in the way its people are thinking and acting. Leaders must have an understanding of how to help coach people through the emotions that are always present in a change environment.
In January, Excell members and guests participated in a workshop about creating the right climate for change that will get people on board and moving towards the future. Join us in February for more robust conversation on this topic and hear how things went for January participants who made 30-day commitments to try one of the tools they learned in the workshop. This round table will allow you to explore best practices in leading change alongside other business leaders in your community. You will find value in February’s conversations even if you missed the January workshop.
