The determining factor today in whether or not organizations survive to serve their clientele is their capacity to engage—their world, their ‘market’, their clients/patients, their own staff. This requires a shift in perspective, especially from leaders. John Scherer has been helping business leaders from 22 countries and virtually every workplace sector transform their lives and their organizations for over 25 years. In this session John shows why human systems and their cultures must change, when they must change, how to best lead that change, what to do with resistance, and how to work powerfully with the polarities that stymie most organizations. The result: a clear and fully embraced culture of engagement.

Learning to be effective in this ‘below-the-waterline’ world requires a completely different set of skills and ways of operating. What could happen where you work if the human spirit were truly unleashed and focused on what it most important?
