Change From Home

A Series of Virtual Events to Keep you Learning (and Sane!) 

In our current environment, staying connected – for informational and emotional  reasons – is more important than ever. In light of the recent cancellation of ACMP Conference 2020 (and the fact that we're unable to meet in-person), we want to provide a useful distraction and an opportunity for you to focus on yourself and your career! Our Change from Home (CFH) series will be a curated series of webinars you can join to keep your brain engaged. 

ACMP Carolinas is here for you during this time.  Together we can use these opportunities to keep our change management skills fresh, sharp, and have a little fun too!  You can register for these events by clicking on the event link in the list below. There is no cost for any of these events.

    Conscious Capitalism provides a framework that supports business leaders and companies to elevate humanity through good, ethical, and noble business practices, while viewing business as a force for good in the world. The current environment we find ourselves operating in has challenged many businesses to completely re-imagine how they continue to operate and create value for their employees, customers, partners and communities.

    During this session, Amir and Steve will provide an overview of the Conscious Capitalism approach, real world examples of the powerful outcomes it has delivered and a brief overview of the four pillars (Higher Purpose, Leadership, Culture and Stakeholder). The session will consist of several interactive discussions to explore how your business, team or community can benefit from this approach, as well as the opportunity to connect with and learn from your ACMP colleagues.

    How do you try to persuade people? Do you prepare a list of bullet points, facts, and figures? Is this working, or do you still have skeptics who are wearing you out? Maybe there is a better way. This presentation will look past the logic of facts to the emotional side of change.  You will be introduced to some techniques for inspiring people to change.

    Hosted by Mary Lynn Manns (Hint! We'll be reading her book in our upcoming ACMP Book Club)
