You can try to ignore the changes we all face in the retail industry as it continues to evolve… but you can’t ignore the consequences of ignoring the changes!
Are you more prone to resist change or ride the wave?
“Don’t rock the boat!” — “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” — “Let sleeping dogs lie.” — These are familiar warnings that advise against causing, confronting, or embracing change. You may do well to take such warnings with a grain of salt. If change is truly inevitable, are “avoiding, fearing, or hating” change worthwhile, effective strategies? Leaders who embrace and manage change tend to perform much better than those who try to avoid change or those who fear it.
In this closing keynote, Harold will reveal several practical ways to spot, embrace, and manage change. He will challenge audience members to assess their own performance and examine their current adaptability. He will also highlight some of the major changes we face today and illustrate ways to get your team on board to ride the wave of change.
