The structure of government organizations and large firms can create an abundance of red tape that slows down decision-making, discourages creativity and stifles innovation. Organizations with hierarchical structures are often bound by rigid controls making them less able to respond to changing conditions in the legal environment and more apt to frustrate dedicated workers. Join this session to receive strategies and action steps to boost your power and keep things moving.




•    Identify 10 strategies to cut through bureaucracy and get into action now
