The workshop is Advanced Change Agentry for Sustainability, and will be taught by Alan AtKisson, who will draw on his experience – and help you draw on yours – to deepen your practical understanding of:
- Why change for sustainability is different – and what you need to do differently when your are working on sustainability change processes
- When, why, and how to use systems thinking and other tools to increase your chances of success—and also when not to use them
- How to map cultural dynamics and plan effective strategy for change
- The role of power in change processes, and how to deal effectively with power games
- Knowing your own “API”—authority, presence, and impact—and learning how to systematically improve all three factors of success.
The workshop takes place at the Seattle Public Library, main branch, Wright-Ketcham meeting room, 1000 Fourth Avenue, downtown Seattle. For more information and online registration, go to http://sustainableseattle.org/training/231
This workshop is part of the ISIS Academy, a professional training program run by AtKisson Group affiliates around the world. They focus on change for sustainability, and integrate the technical skills you need with the people skills that make change possible—and personally rewarding.
