Video Recording: Robert Starinsky on Organizational Change
Title: When was the last time you asked: “Why?”
Why are some organizations successful performers when other very similar organizations are marginal performers at best? The answer is simple. Successful organizations constantly reinvent themselves by questioning the status quo.
In today’s business environment change is the only constant. Organizations that regularly – if not constantly – engage themselves in self-reflection and self-improvement are the organizations that stand the greatest chance of both success and survival in today’s hyper-competitive, pandemic infused marketplace.
A forward-looking organization must be asking themselves tough questions about what they want to be, what trends are affecting their business, how to establish, re-establish and reach goals, what’s the best possible way of getting things done and of more immediate concern, how to survive during a global pandemic.
Successful organizations must be both future-oriented and action-driven. Quite simply put, today every organization must be in two businesses at the same time – their day-to-day, or “core” business and the “change” business.
This presentation provides leaders and managers of organizations of all types with practical advice and techniques for engaging in continuous self-reflection and self-improvement intended to keep their organizations laser-focused, lean and relevant in the emerging post-pandemic world.
