Primary event description:
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...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 strike fear into audiences about problems impacting the changing business landscape, Laura offers real-world solutions with positive impact…in a refreshing and inspiring way. That’s why Laura Goodrich is so refreshing…and effective. Her approach is compelling, hopeful and inspirational at the same time. 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.
Today, Organizational Development, Change Management and HR 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 Change Champions who are paving the road to a positive future in very strategic ways.
