TroyAgility & Change
What’s the # 1 reason why people don’t like change? According to Troy Hall, Ph.D., Chief Strategic Officer for South Carolina Federal Credit Union, it's fear. Fear of the unknown… fear of trust… fear of feeling irrelevant. "Dr. Troy" will close the conference with his belief: “You cannot be a victor of your future, if you are held captive by your past." Hall will highlight the successful characteristics of an agile and change-driven organization inspired by John Kotter’s 8-Step Change Model.
