At this time of year, we tend to be ambitious to take on new challenges, create long lists to accomplish and conquer great tasks. A popular TED speaker, Dr. Margaret Heffernan [bio] challenges us for a new kind of thinking, arguing that people and organizations can havea big impact by making deceptively small changes such as using every mind on the team, rethinking mistakes and encouraging time off from work.
Dr. Heffernan is a wise and witty storyteller who fully engages her audience. Filled with interesting anecdotes, her insights into human behavior have transformed organizations.
How was intelligence gathering revolutionized?
How did one organization increase their revenue by 15 million by instituting a short coffee break?
Heffernan investigates all these scenarios and comes to the same conclusion: big improvements can come from simply making small changes.
Join us on Wednesday, January 30 at 5:00 pm GMT, 12:00 ET, 9:00 PT as we hear directly from Dr. Heffernan regarding her thoughts on the impact of small changes.
