the Heart of Change Field Guide
Presented by the author, Dan Cohen
Based on his experience and travels of late, Dan will discuss what he has found — i.e. that (A) there are two key factors regarding change: Driving Commitment and Embedding Behavior, and (B) all other aspects of successful change fall under these two categories.
Dan will also be discussing the 21st Century perspective on the Kotter 8 Steps in light of the work that he has been doing over the last several years with people around the world, as well as the myth that transformations fail 70% of the time.
Presenter: Dan S. Cohen, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP
