Harnessing the Power of the Brain for Change
Andrea Barrett, Master Practitioner
The pace of change is accelerating. The amount of change we face is increasing. We can influence change for our clients but rarely control it. Traditional tools to manage change, the tools that focus on organizations, just don’t work very well. Indeed, McKinsey has indicated a 70% failure rate or organizational change efforts. Yet modern neuroscience has generated numerous new insights about the brain’s ability to process and respond to change. By mining those insights we’ve identified 5 power tools to help harness the power of the brain to drive more effective change efforts.
Join us for an interactive presentation to understand these tools and how they can help you and your clients drive change more successfully.

Facilitation Through Journey Maps
Journey Maps are pictures of where your customers are and what they are doing while they are your customer, client, patient, guest, etc. Making a Journey Map involves collecting information from various 'touch points' in your business through research, observation, and/or interviews.
Using a Journey Map helps everyone in your organization get on the same page about the customer experience. Well-facilitated Journey Map workshops use Design Thinking to ensure all constituents get more of what they want.
Mike will share some Journey Mapping basics, help you learn how to apply Journey Maps for current-state and future-state projects, and show you how to pick the best resolution of Journey Map for your own initiative.
