Closing Session: If You Don’t Like Change You Are Going To Hate Extinction

"When you're finished changing, you're finished." —Benjamin Franklin

Change is a constant. Everyone is standing on shaky ground. Today's "king of the mountain" could be tomorrow's case study on failure: Kodak, Sears, Borders, and JCPenney have all gone bankrupt . . . and the ultimate reason was their inability to handle change. Even now, in today's tenuous economy, it is the customer who is driving the ship. When a company increases the value offered to customers by improving the product, enhancing service, offering better technology or increasing efficiencies, the competition must follow.

With over 30 years of extensive corporate and entrepreneurial experience, Robert Stevenson understands what it takes to succeed. He has owned several companies, sold internationally in over 20 countries and authored four books—including the bestseller How to Soar Like an Eagle in a World Full of Turkeys. Join him for an enlightening exploration of successes, failures and the reasons behind both—and learn how to capitalize on the opportunities that are created because of change. By the end of this session, you will be able to: 

  • See change as an inevitable opportunity
  • Examine personal beliefs about change
  • Develop a positive attitude toward living in a constantly changing environment
  • Understand that the idea receiving the most resistance is probably the best idea
  • Capitalize on thinking 'outside the box'
  • Deal with the ever-changing needs of the customer
  • The process of stimulating ideas
  • Realize that change is never final nor always right
  • Recognize the value and importance of change
