Free Educational Webinar

There is not a single giant leap forward in the history of everything that didn’t require months or years of planning, rigorous testing, teamwork – and any number of failures along the way. During this session the presenters will examine the shifts in attitude, behavior and strategy that go into leading substantive, lasting change.

They will discuss how to define the breakthrough you need, defining the conditions for achieving it in context of capacity, infrastructure and taking risks, while setting the plan to reach it and how lead the way.

You will learn how to think through each step together and craft a plan that makes breakthrough not only possible, but possibly inevitable.
