Keynote Session: Changemakers
Sinikka Waugh, she/her/hers, Your Clear Next Step
Changemakers are the individuals who put the good of the organization first, make authentic human connections, and consistently treat change as a process, not an event. They make things happen. More often than not, though, Changemakers get stuck. There’s not enough budget. Our projects keep falling behind. We rarely stick to a change when we propose one. Someone is always upset about an initiative. Is there a better way?
Yes! This jam packed and engaging session will give you the tools and techniques for a better way…
- For change
- To get more done
- To bring people along
By attending this course, participants will:
- Gain tools to help you improve your influence
- Encounter a simple, easy-to-apply model for talking about one of the most disruptive forces at work
- Enable you to identify and empower Changemakers around you
