Presentation Details

Work and the world won't ever be the same after 2020. Colin Mincy, known in the industry as a people, work culture and change leader, will talk about change - the difference between change that is perfunctory and responsive versus change that is strategic and well-informed.


Through masterful storytelling, Colin will share real examples of organizations that have embraced
change and those that have not, organizations with strong internal communications infrastructure that
allows them to create a solutions-focused mindset and fix things that are stuck before they become
greater messes, and finally, Colin will talk about the importance of personal change and the journey of
evolving to our greater selves, so we are poised to do our greatest work.


In this session, you will learn:

  • Case studies from organizations who resisted organizational change or fumbled when adopting a new strategy.

  • Tips for introducing change to an organization that isn’t fully ready for it and advice for how you
    can stay open to change on a personal level.

  • Actions leaders and engaged workforce can take TODAY to start changing mindsets, culture, and processes.
