Are you frustrated that no matter what you try, your change projects seem to either fail outright or produce gains that don’t last?  The reality is that most changes do fail. As many as 70% of organizational change initiatives fall short of expectations.  As a change management professional, your career progress hinges on your ability to lead successful and sustainable transformation. 

In this presentation, you’ll get introduced to how to get beyond the buzzwords and leverage a proven formula for change.  The CQ System for Developing Change Intelligence is based on decades of change leadership in the workplace, years of conducting global research on managing change, and study into the psychology and neuroscience of change.  Through real-life examples you’ll learn how to:

  • Engage the brain, inspire the heart, and motivate the hands to get people moving in positive, new directions so change sticks
  • Diagnose your own Change Intelligence, and appreciate the strengths and blind spots of your Change Leadership Style
  • Develop your CQ to drive change that gets results, recoups your investment, and makes a bottom line difference for your organization, team and career
  • Emerge as a more competent and confident – and less stressed and frustrated – leader of change
