Title: Straight Talk – a critical ingredient for creating movement and change

Presenter: Alex Wray


The inability to say it straight may be killing your change effort. From our 25 years with clients from the c-suite of global multinationals, to the frontline of the Silicon Valley start-ups, we’ve seen that no one is immune. We might know the “issue” but we struggle to address it.

Instead, we dance around the elephants. no one daring to face them down, let alone call them out. The impact? We are kept from wrapping our minds around the issues that matter most.

Lacking the capability for talking straight keeps teams and organizations stuck; painfully repeating patterns of ineffectiveness, year after year.

In a world of rapid-fire change and ever-growing uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to build the capability to get to the heart of the issue, fast.

This presentation promises practical insight into building the collective capability to get real about the real issue.
