14th Annual Change and Transformation Conference

Challenge Your Beliefs About Change: Reframe and Redefine the Workplace and the Profession
JUNE 16 - 17, 2016 | NEW YORK MARRIOTT DOWNTOWN | NEW YORK, NY

June 16 - 17, 2016

 The Disruptive Age, the Entrepreneurial Age, the Digital Age: whatever we call it, we are undergoing a period of radical change in traditional models of business.  This radical change also applies to our longstanding beliefs about the world we live in, the work we do, and who we are as change professionals. 

Join your fellow change professionals for the 14th annual Change and Transformation Conference June 16-17 in NYC. With your help, we’ll broaden the change management conversation to reflect the greater role we play in business performance and results.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Understand the difference between change management and transformation in terms of business impact. 
  • Discover how other change leaders adapt and adopt new strategies to address continuous and complex change.
  • Build change competency, not by outsourcing to HR or OD professionals, but by making transformation an iterative, experimental, and ongoing enterprise mindset in decision making.
  • Take change and transformation beyond executive sponsorship and leadership to include systems and new behaviors.

AGENDA
JUNE 16 - 17, 2016
NEW YORK MARRIOTT DOWNTOWN

June 15, 2016

In this full day session, we’ll challenge conventional wisdom about creating a culture of innovation and explore ways to reframe the conversation.  Your outcome for the day is a communications plan to change the conversation, impacting engagement and real behavioral change. 

Morning Session 9am to Noon

Creating a Culture of Continuous Innovation

The best way to show that a transformation is possible is to show that the transformation has already begun. The leader’s most powerful tool isn’t a soapbox to stand on – it’s a spotlight to shine on the places where positive change is happening today. 

The leader’s job is to create a culture that encourages disciplined experimentation, and shine a spotlight on the people and places that deserve a wider audience. People cope with new realities by conducting experiments and trying adaptive strategies to deal with their dynamic environment. An innovative culture democratizes innovation, and it includes each person in the process of co-creating the next version of the organization.

In this session you’ll learn:

  • How celebrating failure can backfire, and a better method for creating a culture of candor and courage.
  • How to spot and celebrate the micro-pivots that demonstrate positive change is beginning to emerge.
  • How to study and share the lessons of the pivots that prove transformation is possible.
  • How courageous leaders are beginning to celebrate pivots and create cultures of innovation, and the business results of their new approach. 

Jake Breeden, author of Tipping Sacred Cows, Keynote speaker, Corporate Educator


Afternoon Session 1 – 4:30pm 

Beyond the Memo – Communicating Change for Innovation and Impact 

Shining a spotlight on the people and places where positive change is happening is more than sending memos. It’s even more than assessing stakeholders and telling good stories. If you really want to reach your audience and put together an impactful plan, brain science is your friend. 

In this session, we’ll dive into facets of ROC Group’s TANSA methodology for achieving the engagement and behavioral change needed to create a culture of continuous innovation. 

We’ll look at the role each of these play in a successful change campaign:

  • Building trust in the message as well as the messenger
  • Breaking through to get and keep attention
  • Tapping motivation
  • Building capability and sustaining behavior 

As an added plus, we’ll give participants tools to use for sharing learnings throughout the conference.
