Abstract: Most leaders understand how to change a process, but few know how to influence the people who will be using the new process. Therefore, a large percentage of change initiatives fail. Donna Highfill’s presentation will provide specific ways to get people to move forward rather than resisting new processes, technology, and ideas. Her story includes 25 years of getting substantial revenue and behavioral lift with audiences that included everyone from technology users to CEOs. Her presentation will give you specific ways to do the same.
