Thriving in Times of Change. Harnessing the Power of Culture.
More than 25 years ago Lou Gerstner, former CEO of IBM noted, “Culture isn’t just one aspect of the game, it is the game.” Yet culture is referred to, but rarely discussed and mostly ignored when it comes to designing and implementing strategic initiatives. As a result, most plans fail to meet expectations.
In today’s business climate, uncertainty and instability are the norm. Change and transformation are a matter of survival. Join us for this extraordinary two-day learning event designed to inspire you, challenge you, and guide you on how to leverage the power of culture and thrive in times of change.
