Live Thursday April 5th - Joseph Grenny on Change

Join me Thursday, April 5th, for early live and interactive conversation with Joseph Grenny, coauthor of four New York Times bestsellers with almost three million copies in print: Crucial Conversations, Crucial Confrontations, Influencer, and Change Anything. Our conversation will attempt to cover the core concepts of Joseph own work and the work of VitalSmarts, the training and development company he helped to found. We'll explore possible implications for this this work within the framework of teaching and learning at all levels--from the personal and the classroom to the institutional and the cultural. In particular, we'll look at how the "positive deviance" process can lead to determining "vital behaviors," and then how combining that understanding with the "six sources of influence" can both dramatically increase the ability to change and significantly decrease the time to do so.
