    PRESENTATION: “So… What do I do Now?” Finding Everyone’s Place in a New Initiative 

    Every organization in every industry wants to be better tomorrow than they are today. Having spent decades implementing disparate processes and management styles to counteract shortfalls, disappointments, and risk, it requires sweeping changes in philosophy and culture to find opportunities for true, measurable improvement from the status quo. Everyone knows that leadership must lead the charge, but how can we harness the experience, knowledge, and creativity of every team member to ensure successful, sustainable improvements?
