Transformation: Powering Change, Evolving the Culture | June 11, 2020 

Speaker/Moderator: Michael Haid, Managing Director, Lee Hecht Harrison

According to new research from Lee Hecht Harrison (LHH), more than half of organizations surveyed report that culture is the single biggest barrier to a successful transformation. The digital revolution has been a major driver of business transformation, revolutionizing the world of work, transforming what we do and how we do it, while changing what consumers want and how they want it. Organizations need to constantly redesign their business models, strategic plans and workforce characteristics to keep pace with the ever-changing demands of the marketplace. Given the strategic importance of a successful transformation, a critical question for leaders to ask is: how do you ensure your workforce is demonstrating the behaviors that drive successful transformation initiatives? Join us for a research-based presentation by Michael Haid, Managing Director for LHH’s US Talent Development Practice, to see this new data and learn about the steps you can take to define your current culture and be intentional about what you want it to look like in the future. Hear about real life experiences from great companies known for their work around transformation and culture. Panelists include C-suite leaders from GE Healthcare, Kraft Heinz, Horizon Pharmaceutical and Coyote Logistics.

As an attendee, you will:

  • Learn the key cultural characteristics that are common to organizations that have achieved successful transformation.
  • Tackle the fundamental steps to changing a flawed culture.
  • Understand how to empower leaders who will take responsibility.
