    • Capital Hilton, 1001 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC

    Change management is often looked at as a project and implemented as if everyone will just go along. But, that's not how real change works. Change done right is a social movement. It travels on excitement and passion, which must be aroused for transformation to take place. Conversely, change lead through cold calculation mostly fails because it doesn't have the necessary support. My presentation will lay down the basic elements of starting and leading a social movement that gets change right, and leads to better business and more powerful mission impact.

    Attendees will:

    • Recognize leadership responsibility for leading change
    • Recognize the social elements of leading change
    • Recognize the impact of effective change on organizational development and mission impact

    Speaker: Seth Kahan, Visionary Leadership

    Seth Kahan presented to FAR members in June 2015 and we’re happy to welcome him back.

    In 1995 Seth began helping Steve Denning introduce Knowledge Management at the World Bank. From there he went on to work with President Jim Wolfensohn and Director Gaddi Vasquez of the Peace Corps. Since that time, over 100 executives tasked with high-value change, innovation, and growth have relied upon Seth Kahan to help them achieve remarkable results that transform the world and grow their organizations.

    Seth’s proven results working with CEO’s to achieve their large-scale change, innovation, growth and strategies, have earned him the designation of Thought-leader and Exemplar in Change Leadership by the Society for Advancement of Consulting®. He is a regular contributor to CEO Update and Associations Editor, Innovation Excellence. Seth has also been featured as an expert on Grand Challenges in Lisa McLeod’s book, “leading with noble purpose; How to Create a Tribe of True Believers” and “Charting Change; A visual toolkit for making change stick” by Braden Kelley and Guest faculty for the Leading Learning Symposium sponsored by Tagoras.

    In addition to being a dedicated husband and father, Seth actively contributes as a board member for the American Geophysical Union, Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind, and the Council of Better Business Bureaus.
