“7 Forces Transforming Your Business” with Diana Rivenburgh

October 13, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT


In today’s unpredictable, interdependent world, leaders need new strategies to turn seismic changes and challenges into a competitive advantage. Disruptive innovation, economic instability, environmental degradation, social upheaval, and other irresistible forces can pummel your company or provide the stimulus for you to alter your strategies in ways that solve the very problems old school practices often caused.


Recent events stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic and the global social injustice outcry are poised to reshape our world in powerful and irreversible ways. We stand on a massive brink of catalytic change prompting a major shift in perspectives, strategy, and daily practices. These seismic shifts demand that we as leaders think deeply about the future of our organizations and ask questions about how these forces impact our businesses AND where they bring opportunities.


This workshop encourages you to explore seven game-changing forces permanently altering your business landscape: 

  • Disruptive Innovation 
  • Economic Instability 
  • Societal Upheaval 
  • Stakeholder Power 
  • Environmental Degradation 
  • Globalization 
  • Demographic Shifts

This interactive workshop uses practical tools and activities to help you think beyond traditional business analysis to:

  • Examine the relevant forces shaping your businesses today
  • Assess the positive and negative impacts of these forces
  • Find the opportunities and risks hidden in each
  • Discover examples of how other companies have thrived by transforming their businesses
