With much appreciation to the county attorneys for making this possible, UAC is pleased to offer one additional special general session at the Annual Convention (November 16-18) in St. George.
Best Selling Author and leading business consultant, Joseph Grenny will spend a couple hours with UAC members on Friday, November 18 from 10 am to Noon in the Garden Room. His topic will be “Proven Strategies to Lead Behavior Change.” In this session attendees will learn about the research Grenny and his team have conducted to discover some of the key behaviors to addressing especially challenging problems leaders face. Grenny’s company VitalSmarts describes the workshop as follows:
Leadership is Intentional Influence. Every leader wants to be an influencer—to create wide-spread and lasting change. And yet, few leaders possess more than a handful of techniques for getting others to change. What truly influential leaders understand is that influence has little to do with pep talks, bribes or system updates but rather is the capacity to systematically, rapidly, and sustainably change a handful of key behaviors. By drawing from the skills of hundreds of successful leaders, thousands of successful change efforts, and more than six decades of the best social science research, Joseph teaches a proven model for leading change—a model that was named the Change Management Approach of the Year by MIT’s Sloan Management Review.
