Transformative Conversations: Steps to Organizational Change
As a result of volatile economic conditions, business leaders are forced to implement organizational transformations to remain competitive. When leaders drive these complex transformations from the top down without asking their employees for critical feedback, they are often unsuccessful. To move forward and lead change, senior leadership must engage their workforce in conversation and discuss the silent barriers to effectiveness and a healthy culture.

This webinar features Alan Todd, General Manager of cohort learning at Udemy Business, and Mike Beer, Ph.D., Harvard Professor Emeritus and the Strategic Fitness Process inventor. As part of the webinar, Beer will demonstrate how managers in hundreds of organizations have led organizational-wide honest conversations that have led to dramatic improvements in trust, commitment, and performance.

Those who attend this webinar will:

• Understand why it’s vital for leaders to seek out the unvarnished truth about their business plans.

• Learn how Professor Beer and his team’s Strategic Fitness Process (SFP) encourage trust and commitment to help leaders become more effective and high-performing.

• Find out how honest conversations lead to competitive advantage by enabling organizations to learn and adapt quickly to changing circumstances.

• Discover how Udemy’s cohort learning solution for leaders can impact cultural change and drive business results.
