Leveraging Change”

Friday, October 14, 2022

Session Overview

People struggle with culture change.  They complain it is hard, takes too long, and costs too much.  All too often, it's also ineffective.  Look at your own experience.  Wouldn’t you jump at the chance to achieve results in your own culture work faster, easier and better?  It’d be great if there were a predictable way to make this happen. 

There is.

It’s called "Leverage Change."  The 8 smart, strategic actions, or levers, included in the approach described in this book can be applied to any change, any time, any place.  Use them and you’ll be on your way to getting more done with fewer headaches, hassles and problems. You can use the levers for everything from culture change, strategy implementation, and leadership development.  

This is a session where you’ll get real work done.  Whether your change effort is straightforward or complex, involves only your own team or the whole organization, just beginning or well underway, your time with Jake will hit the mark.  

This presentation is really a consulting experience masquerading as presentation. Using a unique approach, you’ll witness a real time roll up the sleeves demonstration of the power of applying the 8 Levers of "Leverage Change." You’ll also have your own opportunity to put these same strategies to work on any type of change on your plate.

  • Identify and address the most common problems in your current culture change work – and know how to do it when you recognize them in the future too. 
  • Question your assumptions. 
  • Challenge your paradigm.  
  • Open your thinking.  

You’ll leave with a fresh perspective on change that will transform the way you see and do culture change work forevermore.  Faster, easier, better change is in your future.

Speaker: Jake Jacobs

"Why do some organizations work and others don’t?

I’ve been curious about that question since my first real job on the assembly line of an ice cream novelty manufacturing plant and my second, tending bar in college. As a pioneer in the field of large group interventions, I have continued my discoveries about better ways for people and organizations to change. My consulting, writing, and teaching have all helped me continue in answering that question.

I’ve worked with some of the largest corporations in the world including American Express, Corning, Ford, The Home Depot, Marriott, Mobil, and TJ Maxx. I’ve also supported major change efforts with the City of New York, the U.S. National Forest Service and Environmental Protection Agency and the United Kingdom’s National Health and Employment Services."
