Please note: No Handicap access. Meeting will be in 1031 building on the second floor, it is an older building with no elevator. An attendee with a physical disability should park on the north side of the building (side closest to Route 202) and then would be aided by fellow attendees up to the second floor. (Identify the 1031 building by its outline - the 2nd floor does not extend as far out as the 1st floor. Vertex will have volunteers to let attendees into the building and escort them up to the meeting room. )
Dealing with Organizational Growing Pains: Change, while energizing for some, is painful for many. During this active session, we will solicit real obstacles to change from audience members and collaborate on creative solutions for these obstacles. Next we will look at organizational "low hanging fruit" for gradual process change. Finally, this session will help set a new understanding of the role that personal motivation for change plays in an organization's pace of change.
