Driving Results One Person at a Time
If there’s one certainty in business today, it’s this: Change is coming your way. You have no choice in the matter. The choice you do have is either to embrace it or bury your head in the sand.
In this Soundview Live webinar, Driving Change One Person at a Time, Walter McFarland and Susan Goldsworthy offer a proven new model for not just facing inevitable change – but leveraging it as a tool for long-term success. The first step is personal: You must decide that you are going to change; only then can you lead change. From there, the authors present the tactics and strategies you need to compete today.
