M2D2 Monthly Downtown DC Meetings—Lead the change with VALUES not Feelings


Any step which one needs to take today to carve the path for tomorrow requires constant efforts to keep it sustainable. Only when a change is sustainable, can one reap the benefits.

Have you seen a situation in your organization where a team member does not want to attend a meeting because he/she FEELS like not attending? Have you also encountered circumstances where Team Members do not speak in front of stakeholders because they don't FEEL like not doing so? Have you also experience the behavior where managers demand the work to be completed by the team because they FEEL the need for the work to be completed ASAP?

If you have answered YES to these questions, we invite you to join the presentation on leading the sustainable change, by emphasizing values rather than feelings.

This session will provide steps to create a culture and environment to build trust and sustain the change.
