8 Principles of Organizational Relevance
December 10, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST Free
In this age of digital transformation, the speed of business propels at breakneck pace. Thirty years ago, companies moved much slower, akin to a Class-II whitewater rapid. The executives at the helm of the lead boat negotiated the rapids dragging everyone else behind in another boat. Support functions and many individuals definitely didn’t have a place in the lead boat, but it didn’t matter much, as the convoy still succeeded moving at a manageable pace.
But today, companies demand agility, responsiveness, and foresight as they traverse dangerous Class-VI rapids. Insufficient or ineffective communication fostered or hindered by Relevancy of individuals and Teams across all disciplines leaves your organization perched precariously on the edge of a major crisis, potentially provoking financial catastrophe, deteriorating customer loyalty, and brand presence.
Damage comes in more insidious forms as well, including the repercussions of ineffective production and communication, or the cancer of a toxic organizational culture. Despite these treacherous waters, we are still often not asked to be part of the lead boat. Pat Bodin, the best-selling author of Get in the Boat: A Journey to Relevance, will discuss organizational relevance and actionable items to give you the opportunity to earn a seat in the lead boat.
