This 3-part series helps firms leverage sustainability and the AIA 2030 Commitment to be more competitive, boost internal efficiency, and get ahead of the codes. If your firm is already an AIA 2030 signatory, this series will help you boost your success while reducing the strain. If you are not yet in the program, this series will demystify what’s really required, relieve anxiety about what it means to commit, and help you start out on the right foot, so you don’t waste time or energy with “false starts”. If you know that the AIA 2030 Commitment is not in your immediate future, this series will still help you get more out of any efforts you have going on and still be more competitive and effective!
In this session: Every company must implement new things, whether a new timesheet, new project management software, or a comprehensive initiative like sustainability, resilience, or diversity and inclusion. In these unprecedented times, the challenges associated with change are heightened and intensified. How can a company navigate the process of change most effectively? How can you overcome resistance and build buy-in and momentum for faster adoption? How will your workflow and processes change in relation to new goals? How do you communicate internally and externally? How can you engage employees at different levels and across different business units? This session digs into your unique business context and shows you how to apply the principles of change management so that you can be empowered to apply the same approach when new challenges arise.
Presented by AIA Columbus Committee on the Environment (COTE) and Barbra BatShalom of Sustainable Performance Institute.
