It’s Not What We Do, It’s Who We Are!  
Daryl Conner  

Whether you consider yourself a project manager, an internal/external OD consultant, or a change management specialist, at the end of the day, we are here to serve people. It doesn’t matter what methodology you subscribe to — what we all have in common is that we ultimately help people navigate through organizational change. Two elements of our work contribute to success:

What We Do – the concepts, frameworks, processes, and techniques we use

Who We Are – how we “show up”…the character and presence we bring to our working relationships

Obviously we must be proficient in what to do.  But often overlooked is the “who we are” aspect. Most of our ‘change’ training centers on what to recommend or what activities to engage in, not how to bring forward who we are as practitioners in a way that creates value for clients. Daryl’s presentation will focus on the role of character and presence in facilitating organizational change.  (See his Bio below.)
