In order to grow a company into a successful business, it’s undeniable that one thing must occur many times along the way: change. And, if your company is like most, changing the behavior of employees may sound a lot like mission impossible. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way – all you need is a clear path and people will follow.

Attend our April program with guest speaker Adam Preston, senior consultant at TCSC, to learn how to make even the toughest changes within your company seem less challenging:

  • Shifting the organizational culture
  • Mandating new business processes
  • Introducing new software or technology
In this program, you’ll learn a mix of communications and psychology techniques that you can use to ensure important changes within your organization are a success. These techniques also apply to situations we face on a regular basis in our communities and personal lives.

This topic is based on the #1 New York Times bestseller, Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard, by Chip and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick. Inspired by this popular book, Adam will share the basics of how even one person – you – can create change in your company.
