How to Create a Movement that Drives Transformational Change with Greg Satell

In an era of disruption, the only viable strategy is to adapt. That’s why the most important challenge for leaders today is to drive and sustain change. Yet research from McKinsey suggests that only 26% of organizational transformations succeed. Getting people to embrace change is never easy.



This workshop is based on the bestselling book, Cascades. It leverages decades of research into social and political movements and applies battle-tested principles to organizational transformation.

What People Are Saying

I realized my entire role is facilitation. I have to do a lot of lateral influencing. So I use these skills even if it is not a super-structured workshop. Our product team has micro meetings all the time, and these methods help us get the most of those moments. My team can lean on me to facilitate. You will redesign the way you have conversations. I can’t believe every college student doesn’t have to take a class like this. This is how you collaborate. It is the underpinning of the future of work.
