TIRED OF THIS CYCLE? This Fast Company article sums it up:
"Every organization is designed to get the results it gets. Poor performance comes from a poorly designed organization. Superior results emerge when strategies, business models, structure, processes, technologies, tools, and reward systems fire on all cylinders in symphonic unison. Savvy leaders shape the culture of their company to drive innovation. They know that it's culture--the values, norms, unconscious messages, and subtle behaviors of leaders and employees--that often limits performance."
* Imagine if you had a Board who spent time on assessing and driving innovative solutions to organizational challenges and was willing to take calculated risks on new ideas.
* Imagine if the majority of your staff could swiftly respond to changes in the environment by adapting or introducing new programs and services.
If this isn't currently happening in your organization, you need to understand why so that you can begin to overcome these barriers and create a unique plan that will work in your culture.
In this second installment in our workshop series, we promise an innovative experience full of practical tips for guiding people through change, overcoming inertia, and building board buy-in. And we will wrap it into lively small group discussions, with more time for sharing and networking.
