So You Want to be a Change Agent: A Survival Guide

Speakers

Most organizations are designed to preserve good ideas and implement them at scale. It should be no surprise then that organizations are horrible at nurturing new ideas and embracing the future. This is why it's so difficult for individuals with new ideas to advance them effectively inside organizations, or even within a team. This presentation, by a veteran change agent who brought meaningful change to CIA, will give you the practical skills to not just overcome organizational obstacles, but to prosper and succeed as a change agent. You will learn how to prioritize your change ideas, refine your proposals, gain important allies, and master important meetings when your ideas get a hearing.
