All Leadership Development Conference Delegates Welcome
8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
People are naturally resistant to change. Most leaders find it difficult to get a whole organization’s worth of people on board with change, even if it’s “change or die.” As a leader, how do you manage the change process for the most success? How do you get people to overcome their fear and risk avoidance and embrace creativity, innovation and the willingness to discover the new opportunities available through change?
In this session, Spencer Penhart will uncover the tools for leaders to put into practice when navigating through times of change. He will show how successful companies can not only succeed through change, but can also create a new competitive advantage.
Attendees will learn:
