|The Steps Patti Takes to Customize Your Change Program|
|Step 1)||Prior to her program, a link to a web survey is sent to all participants via the meeting planner. Participants provide their anonymous feedback directly to Patti. Your people’s comments (with their permission and without their name) are used throughout her program to illustrate examples of how people react to change. It is difficult for participants to argue with their own data which makes Patti’s programs highly relevant and applicable.|
|Step 2)||Patti wants a detailed list of your organization’s changes over the last 18 months and its impact on the program participants. She discusses these changes throughout her program.|
|Step 3)||A complete review of your company’s literature (annual report, internal and external newsletters, web site, employee opinion surveys, etc.) helps Patti understand your culture. For associations, Patti reviews your new member literature, past newsletters, and relevant industry information.|
|The End Result:||A program custom-tailored to meet your specific needs and concerns.|
|Free Bonus:||Patti offers a complimentary Executive Debriefing/Coaching Session in which she discusses the web survey and provides your leadership team/executive with recommendations for next steps in making your change(s) work.|
