Get Connected: A Values-driven Approach To Change Management

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • In the workplace today are 4 generations with different sets of values and ways of working which is causing a lot of conflict. A values-driven approach to leading change is required to give leaders a better understanding of what motivates and energizes the change process. Now, more than ever before we need to reach out and reconnect with each other. The most successful leaders are able to help their teams get connected, and create a team spirit and culture, which supports them in reaching their goals.

    This keynote is for organizations and leaders who are going through change. Joanna shares her ABC Framework for Cultural Transformation, one of the most challenging forms of change management. This framework empowers leaders and managers with a values-driven approach to lead change successfully.

    Remember, if you don’t have a conscious culture, you have a default, unconscious culture.

    RESULTS:

    • Courage, inspiration, and positive energy to lead change.
    • Understanding the human dynamics which cause resistance.
    • Greater self-awareness for developing connection and trust.

We worked with Joanna Barclay on Morrison & Foerster’s (MoFo’s) inaugural event for women in the legal industry in Singapore. We chose Joanna as our guest speaker because at MoFo we share her passion for “Conscious Values-Based Leadership” believing that it not only builds a positive and cohesive workplace culture but also delivers better results to the bottom line. Joanna’s presentation and the panel discussion that followed were engaging and inspirational. Her knowledge about culture and leadership is impressive and her messages convincing – even for an audience of skeptical, analytical lawyers. We were given practical ideas and actions to take away to further develop our...
