Enacting Change

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

10:30am to 11:30am (EST)

Fearing change is natural and normal for us as humans, but it’s no way to go through life. We’ve been coached and cajoled into embracing change because it’s inescapable, but unfortunately not all change is good. The world is full of people with stupid ideas who are somehow in positions of greater influence and power than we are. Fortunately getting people to help enact the change you believe in is not a matter of happenstance, luck, or sheer authoritative power. If the change you envision is truly worthwhile to others, how are you going to make sure you pull them into the cause? This session will leverage some real world examples from parasitic worms to subway cars in order to demonstrate how a few key behaviors can mean the difference between enacting lasting change or a lifetime of embracing the change of others.
