Hear how to overcome the difficulties that block change

In our podcast today, Linda Coughlin and I get deep into a conversation about the challenges of working with organizations that need to change. You are going to love this interview. Lin is an expert on how to help companies rethink their processes and develop new ways to bring together new teams, engage different generations and successfully build new cultures, often from the merger of different organizations. As you’ll hear, she and I are on the same page. Enjoy.

Some of the ideas Linda and I discuss include:

  1. Why it is so hard for people to see what is right before them — one of my favorite topics.
  2. The power of culture to support an organization or undermine its initiatives.
  3. How to help people develop new solutions on their own, so consultants can build the trust that is needed to move an organization forward.
