In Person Workshop: Executive Time, Budget, and Respect: Getting More of it All!

Let’s be honest. Every change leader would like more time, budget, and respect. Even if you have decades of change experience backed by world-renowned change tools, if the C-suite isn’t fully engaged in your change efforts, the perceived value of you and your team plummets.
If you’ve ever felt like the C-suite expects you to implement change at the speed of light, but it takes you three weeks to get 30 minutes on their calendar, then this session will rock your world!

If you’ve ever felt like the expectations for scope and quality far outweighed the provided budget, then this session will rock your universe!
In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn techniques to dramatically increase the attention you get from the executive committee, how they walk the talk to lead your initiatives, and how much budget you get to implement all the adoption techniques that you know work best for people across your entire organization. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to optimize the success of your company’s change initiatives, enhance your brand as a more strategic leader in the organization, and ensure you get the budget you need year over year!
