- About this workshop
Whitney will present the case for driving innovation through personal disruption, including an explanation of the S-curve, the psychology of disruption, and an overview of the seven accelerants:
- Taking on market v. competitive risk
- Playing to distinctive strengths
- Embracing constraints
- Battling entitlement
- Stepping back to grow
- Giving failure its due
- Being driven by discovery
By harnessing the power of personal disruption, Whitney can help participants move from stuck to unstuck, and restate value for themselves and their organizations where it did not before exist.
- One on One
Whitney is pleased to offer 30 minute individual coaching sessions to follow up on either her keynote or workshop. During these sessions she works 1-1 with selected staff helping them in the disruption process. The client can contract for a block of time and number of staff to participate.
