Last month, I presented live at a meeting of Organization Change Alliance in Atlanta, a presentation called “Inside Influence:Â Leading Change from the Middle.”Â It went so well, I thought I would provide an opportunity for internal change agents who are not in Atlanta (or who missed the original presentation) to attend!
Inside Influence: Leading Change from the Middle
Dates: Thursday, June 24, 2010
Time: 2:00 pm ET / 11:00 am PT / 7:00 pm UK
Duration: 90 minutes
Venue: Online (register for details)
A common view of change is that it must start from the top of the organization. However, change is often instigated and led from pockets within an organization. In fact many roles, such as IT, engineering, project management, process improvement, strategic planning and internal HR/OD practitioners, require influencing other people in the organization to change the way they work. Since senior leaders canâ€™t do all the work of change, managers and employees further down on the org chart are frequently tapped to take on change in addition to their day job.
In this free webinar, we will explore the role of the internal change agent, with its risks, rewards, advantages and challenges. You will learn how to leverage the role and how to best influence organizational change without authority.
Registration for this event is now closed. Please see the Programs page for upcoming events!
