Static to Signal: A Lesson in Alignment


Your job isn’t what you think it is. Ringing the iron triangle of time, scope, and budget doesn’t drown out the complexity of humans working with other humans. Your real job is to create alignment with your folks at work: to bind them together so everyone is pulling in the same direction, fighting for the same things, and uniting for the same purpose. Join Rachel Gertz for a frank discussion about getting your people on the same frequency so you can focus on doing the work that matters.

In this session you'll learn:

  • Key behaviors, responses, and environmental changes that indicate stakeholder misalignment and practical scripts and tips for how to respond

  • How to create strong work allies who champion your processes and ideas

  • Our evolving role as process and organizational change makers and how we become invaluable catalyzers on our teams
