Sustainability Roadmap: Leading Organizational Change

The future of our planet depends on our ability to innovate, co-create collaboratively, and achieve levels of synergy that transform. Certification programs define objective performance targets, yet a gap remains between rising performance goals and organizations’ capability to achieve them consistently. Aligning company vision, culture, operations, and integrated project delivery with clear goals is critical. Attendees will be introduced to a powerful new organizational model proven to transform organizations to achieve new levels of employee engagement, decision-making agility, and innovation, and will learn how to measure company performance improvements. Participants will hear from experts engaged in this transformational leadership work about what it takes to inspire change and how to build high-functioning teams ready to address adaptive challenges.
