Professor Terri Griffith brings energy and evidence-based management to issues of modern work design, technology & social media decision-making, and organizational practice.
We all are challenged by shifting tools and techniques and Terri offers clear examples and frameworks for succeeding now and in the future. In sessions from 18 minutes to two days, she gives audiences what they need to know and why they need to know it: Not just leadership, not just technology, but a powerful combination that leverages all your resources.
Whether your interest is in navigating the fast moving future of work, or getting the most from your current situation, Terri can bring clear examples and methods to your team or whole organization.
Praise for Customized Keynote (Women of the Channel 2014): Lead By Letting Go
"'She was awesome,' said conference attendee Joanne Poggi, channel marketing manager at San Jose, Calif.-based Polycom. 'I think her lead by letting go [concept] is something that resonates with everybody.'"
"...Amy Whelan, national channel executive at Riverbed...'I'm in a sales position role, but want to lead a team in the very near future,' she said. 'By letting myself go and not being afraid and learning by examples, those are some of the tools it will take to be successful.'"
Lead by Letting Go, or if that's too extreme, Lead Like a Pro, is a great topic for energizing your customers, kicking off a change effort, or even just starting a new quarter. In today’s economy, corporations and their leaders have something in common: they both must be agile, ready to respond to change driven by global trends, shifts in corporate direction and new technology.
For both, staying in one place — physically or psychically — is a recipe for obsolescence or failure.
Achieving the many levels of management agility you need requires what I call “leading by letting go.” Hold tight to your values, relationships, and tight focus of performance. Let go of 20th century management constraints that are holding you back.
“Terri's depth and breadth of expertise is sometimes belied by the many ways she makes her detailed research and conclusions so accessible. An engaging speaker, she articulates her three-dimensional model of people+technologies+organizational processes in such a way that both the big picture and the specific opportunities are illuminated. I try to take in her presentations every chance I get!” Lucie Newcomb, President and CEO, The NewComm Global Group, Inc. November 12, 2011
