Sparking A Movement - Live Course

Thank you

Thank you for attending today's course. Please take a moment to complete the course evaluation survey.


While another global pandemic may or may not be around the corner, its clear that multi-year efforts to drive change have become irrelevant.
Every organization must consider how to activate change FASTER and traditional change management can only go so far. In today’s world, the way to make change is to make a movement – to spark purpose-driven ideas that resonate with key influencers, cause others to mobilize in pursuit of early wins and create momentum towards a “tipping point” that makes what was once radical the new norm.
