Leverage Change: 8 Ways to Achieve Faster, Easier, Better Results with Any Change in Any Organization, Made by Anyone

Speakers: Jake Jacobs

Bios:

Jake Jacobs helps organizations, teams, and individuals make monumental changes.  Over the past 35 years he's worked in 61 industries, from high tech to manufacturing to hospitality to entertainment to financial services. He's consulted to 96 organizations, from Fortune 50 to national non-profits and community theaters.  He's supported more than 210,000 people directly on important changes to their business. What kinds of changes? Everything from strategy implementation to culture change to mergers and acquisitions and leadership development.  He's partnered with CEOs, front-line workers and changemakers in middle management in organizations like Ford, Kraft and Marriott. He's also helped create change in the City of New York, U.K.’s National Health Service and the United States Army and Navy. 

Description:

People struggle with change. They complain it is hard, takes too long, and costs too much. All too often, it's also ineffective. Look at your own experience. Wouldn’t you jump at the chance to achieve results in your own work faster, easier and better? It’d be great if there were a predictable way to make this happen.

There is.

It’s called Leverage Change. The 8 levers, or smart, strategic actions can be applied to any change, any time, any place. Use them and you’ll be on your way to getting more done with fewer headaches, hassles and problems.

Session:

  1. We'll begin with a real time consultation with a volunteer from the audience. Within 5 minutes, I will consult to the volunteer using the 8 Levers to achieve a breakthrough idea.
  2. I will introduce the 8 Levers, explaining how I applied them in the consultation session and welcome others’ insights and questions.
  3. All attendees will work with a partner to apply a Lever to their situation, leading to an immediate improvement.
  4. We will reconvene as one group  to identify lessons learned and how to carry the Levers back to their day jobs.
