Root to Present The Art of Engagement at 2012 Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems (DODIIS) Worldwide Conference

Monday, April 2, Root to Outline How Organizations Can Engage Employees to Help Make Strategic Change Happen

SYLVANIA, OH--(Marketwire - Mar 28, 2012) -


Root, the strategy execution consulting company, and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the nation's premier all-source military intelligence organization.


Rich Berens, President of Root, will conduct a 30 minute plenary on "The Art of Engagement: Inspiring People, Creating Change and Making a Difference" for the Department of Defense Intelligence Information Systems Worldwide Conference. The session will explore the challenges organizations face when implementing a new strategy or initiative, most specifically around the impact to its culture and people. Berens will identify the "canyons" that exist in organizations, which typically lead to ineffective execution, and the consequences and costs of having a disengaged workforce. Throughout the 30-minute discussion, attendees will learn how to engage people by creating a more meaningful connection between the strategy and each individual's role in making it happen. Berens' session will explore visualization techniques and systems-view thinking that engages both the heart and minds of people to achieve results.
