Are you trying to drive lasting change in your organization? Are you succeeding? There's a good chance you're not — and you are far from alone. Most organizational change efforts fail. But when they are done right, they can take companies to new levels of performance. Join CCL and top executives from KONE, a leading designer and manufacturer of elevators, to learn about a change effort that's really working.

This session will help you:

  • Understand common reasons why change efforts fail.
  • Learn practical steps to bring about real change.
  • Encourage collaboration among key stakeholders.

Audience: This webinar is for executives and senior leaders who want to introduce lasting change into their organizations - and are skeptical that it can really be done.
