"Success Secrets of Trusted Change Advisors"(Link)

Speaking Engagement: The Association of Change Management Professionals
April 2012

What does it mean to be a trusted change advisor in today's turbulent times? Learn from this panel of internal and external change advisors who support leaders dealing with complex, time-sensitive challenges. The advisors will talk about how they vary their approach and style for different leaders so they can build trust and accelerate change, especially dealing with diverse stakeholders who want their voices heard. You'll also hear about what works and what to avoid in the role of a strategic change advisor. This includes serving as a sounding board, helping uncover issues, testing ideas and taking an active role in execution. Plus, you'll get tips, techniques and practical ideas from the panelists as well as other workshop participants.
