Organizations in Radical Transformation

Creating Sustainable Change by Making It Personal

Statistically speaking, transformation success remains stuck at 30%. Keith’s long established practices around changing organizational behavior will get you the rest of the way.

Each Challenge Talk is unique to its audience. ''Old way'' behaviors are addressed, with audience members beginning their transformation immediately. These changes are supported by ongoing coaching and feedback so measurable results can be identified from the moment Keith leaves the stage.

Key takeaways:

  • Identify the behaviors that need to change within the organization
  • Identify what "blockers" are hindering the "new way"
  • Identify the enablers that will make your "new way" a reality

Co-Elevation 

Transforming the customer experience

Our new radically interdependent world has transformed how organizations work with their customers. While sales teams have always understood the importance of relationship building, customer experience has become a prime motivating force in sales decision making. The critical attributes of a high-performing sales team now relies on its approach to transforming the customer experience through collaborative selling.

Key takeaways:

  • How to achieve constant sales growth with collaborative selling
  • Understand how customer experience shapes the sales journey
  • How to build a collaborative customer relationship that maximizes sales
  • Grow large strategic accounts faster by aligning your sales ecosystem

Unleashing Innovation & Agility 

Breaking down organizational silos

Large organizations are waking up to the idea that silos don't work. When leaders and teams are required to work across departments, offices and even countries, cutting across silos and managing interdependencies is a critical skill. When deep internal relationships break down those silos, teams and leaders develop a culture of transparency and accountability that fosters innovation and promotes agility in thinking, processes and results.

Key takeaways:

  • How to engage teams and leaders in inter-organizational relationship building
  • Why agility is a critical success factor for modern organizations
  • Why silo-hopping transparency increases accountability and produces measurable results
  • When collaboration creates success in interdependent teams
