Good friend and very smart leadership speaker, Laurence Haughton, will be online January 30th from 9:00 a.m. PT (Noon Eastern time), presenting, "More Buy-In for New Ideas and Innovations"- a new strategy to overcome resistance to change and improve follow through.
I've had the privilege of knowing Laurence for a few years now. He's always up to something exciting, and this is just another one of his online presentations that promises to be fantastic. Laurence is the author of It's Not What You Say...It's What You Do - How Following Through at Every Level Can Make or Break Your Company.
Microsoft is sponsoring the event. They have it billed as, "Making Change Happen." Change, as all the best coaches and advisors will tell you, is good. I have it on good authority (from Laurence, himself), that at this presentation, in just under an hour, "you will learn proven techniques to make sure innovative ideas and strategies get enough buy-in to overcome any organizational resistance."
Laurence says, "Most executives underestimate their company's resistance to change. That's a big reason why half of all new initiatives fail. Managers don't start with a plan to get enough buy-in. Tune in to this presentation and learn:
- How to get your new ideas off to a great start
- Who should be invited on and who you must keep away from your change team
- The tactic that will stop bureaucrats before they kill your momentum
