Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2006
Company leaders can learn best practices for applying change leadership to improve corporate adaptability and long-term performance at Think Like a Change Leader, a new workshop announced today by the Bay Area Council of AeA, the nation’s largest trade association representing all segments of the high-tech industry, and Crawford International. The workshop is aimed at executives, directors and entrepreneurs desiring to enhance their leadership team’s ability to get buy-in, create broad alignment and execute business change effectively.
This three-hour workshop is available to AeA members and non-members. It draws on Crawford’s 24 years of successful consulting partnerships with some of America’s best companies including HP, Genentech, Cisco, AMD, GAP, IBM, Google and many others. The first workshop will be held June 6 in Santa Clara, California.
Workshop topics include the hidden ROI of business change and a four-step model for increasing a company’s ability to implement business change. Participants receive practical checklists, copies of benchmark research and tools for improving their firm’s capacity to navigate the constant change of today’s business environment. Executives that report strong and consistent application of change leadership practices in their companies experience 10-year net income growth of 900-to-1 compared to companies with weak change leadership practices (http://www.crawfordinternational.com/research).
