Onboard leaders (and yourself) for action and impact
SPARKER: Michael Ambjorn, Vice Chair, IABC
Whether working with one person or a thousand, throwing people in at the proverbial deep end can lead to unexpected results and unwanted outcomes. In fact: 70% of large change programs fail — and one of the ways you can improve your chances of success is through good onboarding.
Learn how to use the IABC Global Standard for Communications to untangle a challenge like this and help people step up and lead. The session will include a brief case study outlining good practice from IABC and elsewhere including a look at the latest #11ways data (learn more at http://alignyour.org/tag/11ways/). You’ll leave with tools, tips and insights that you can immediately apply whether you’re about to start something yourself, or get somebody else started. Pass it on.
