Connie Whitman

Architect of Change – Conversation-Based Approach to Systems Thinking

We go to our office or cubicle at work and put our nose to the grindstone.  We do not look up, perhaps to go to the ladies room or men’s room or to fill your cup of coffee.  Forget about sitting in endless meetings where most of the time the leaders of the organization tell everyone in the room “what is going to happen and how everyone is going to go about implementing the initiative.”

Are you allowed to have a voice or an opinion if you see a better, more effective and efficient way to role out the initiative.  Are you supposed to speak and share your thoughts and ideas or is your organization’s culture about keeping your head down and flying under the radar?

Today our discussion is about creating a sense of community and shaping organizational culture.  We will cover how the quality of our interactions and the quality of our discussions actually drive business decisions, enable innovation and shape the direction of the business and the long-term success of the organization and its employees.

Today your host, Connie Whitman, will speak with Maria Seddio who is the founder of CorpTalk, a communication and strategy leadership program that engages companies; and also the founder of Wash!, a narrative platform for women’s leadership.
