11:00  Chase the Elephants Away – Promote Lasting Change – Sponsored by Ernie Cory

We all know the old expression about the elephant in the room – the obvious thing that everyone recognizes but no one acknowledges. Visible or not, if the elephant is there, you have to walk around it. In the workplace, elephants cause the same roadblocks when they take up residence there.   Communication is the key to everything that works or doesn’t work within an organization, and when elephants make themselves at home in your organization it takes not just good but stellar communication to move them out.
