The Change Challenge will shock you with the revelation that transformation success remains stuck at 30 percent today and will inspire you with how to fix it. Keith brings to life Ferrazzi Greenlight's long established practices around changing organizational behavior. He describes how coaching to increase trust and collaboration has improved the effectiveness.

Keith will share the secret: Changing an organization's misbehavior to a new "trusted advisor" approach.

Each Challenge Talk is unique to its audience. An FG consultant conducts a dozen or more interviews with senior managers to identify the highest return behavior changes among what key constituencies will help achieve their strategic objectives. These "old way" behaviors are prescribed with "new way" behaviors and audience members begin their own transformation immediately. These changes are supported by ongoing coaching and feedback so measurable results can be identified from the moment Keith leaves the stage.

Ideal Audience: Top Leaders of an organization embarking on transformational change.

Key Takeaways:

  • IDENTIFY THE BEHAVIORS THAT NEED TO CHANGE WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION
  • IDENTIFY WHAT "BLOCKERS" ARE HINDERING THE "NEW WAY"
  • IDENTIFY THE ENABLERS TO MAKE YOUR "NEW WAY" A REALITY
