TREC Webinar | Leveraging Change Instead of Being Leveled By It
Thursday, October 22nd | 11:00 AM-12:00 PM Mountain Time
Presenters: Pamela Chiang and host Kristi Chester Vance, TREC
Change is a constant in our organizations. More often than not, our organizations are reacting or responding to a situation that requires change, and we can’t give it our full attention or reap lasting benefits.
It’s no surprise that McKinsey–the global consulting firm–cites that over 70% of organizational change efforts fail. What would it be like to be prepared for change and plan for it? Whether it’s a change due to a long-time staff member departing, a concern of lack of organizational relevance, or an opportunity that can magnify the organization’s impact, leaders and their teams can design change to be in the “30% zone of success.” With fierce compassion and creativity, coupled with deep experience in organizing and social justice, Pamela does more than help organizations manage change. She works with them to leverage and even instigate change in service of their values, commitments, and desired outcomes.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to proactively address change in a way that supports your values and vision, rather than feeling reactive and disempowered. You’ll leave with a better understanding of how to design successful organizational change.
