What is a Change-Promoter?
Based on the O`Neal model (2007), I will be sharing the Change-Promotor cycle that includes the following topics:
- What is a Change-Promoter?
- Idea and proposal generation and how to implement and sustain them
- Promotion and Sponsor engagement
- Attaining buy-in from key stakeholders
- Becoming a Change Agent
- Change targets and cycle ending /continuous improvement activities
- Influencing techniques
My presentation will be framed from the context of a very successful Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. An idea that was generated and implemented within Bombardier then adopted and now spearheaded by Aero Montréal. The initiative titled The Passion for Flight program has an objective to inspire and influence Quebec elementary and secondary students to pursue studies and ultimately a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Today the Passion for Flight program is impacting a large numbers of Quebec students. Links
