    We're excited to welcome guest speaker Paul McMurray, President of Insight Management Consulting. Paul McMurray has over 20 years of experience in consulting and organizational development. Paul helps individuals, teams and organizations increase effectiveness, achieve bottom-line results and become measurably more vital through training and coaching. He will talk to us about - Change Management & Personal Change.

    About the Program:

    Creating sustainable change is a constant struggle for organizations and individuals. To be successful, we must:

      • Define what success looks like
      • Understand crucial moments and crucial behaviors
      • Realize that there are numerous influences on our behaviors

    Whether the focus is on personal change or organizational change, the model is the same. We studied the struggles, strategies, trials and triumphs of 5,000 people looking to make big changes. Whether hoping to get a promotion, lose weight, increase sales, or get off drugs, the select few who achieved their goals used the same basic influence strategies – strategies from which we’ve distilled a new science of change/influence.

    Participants will learn to make long-anticipated improvements in their lives, careers and relationships by applying three breakthrough principles to any challenge.

      • Escape the willpower trap. Those who fail falsely believe they lack willpower. More often, the problem is that they are blind and outnumbered to the many sources of influence shaping their behavior.
      • Be the scientist and the subject. Those who succeed develop and refine a completely unique theory of change tailored to their individual needs.
      • Turn bad days into good data. The successful few care less about dramatic success than they do about incremental learning. 

    The science delivered in this hands-on presentation will empower those who believe and understand that changing their own behavior is the most reliable path to achieving their personal and professional goals.
