Institutions of every size tend to find themselves in a rut. Individuals can develop “tunnel vision” and become resistant to change. This seminar reviews the psychology of influence and offers practical advice for helping others see things differently at work.

Bob Downs, CEO, expressed his support for the series. “We’re excited to bring outside speakers to serve our communities and give them the opportunity to learn and grow.” Downs oversees operations for 41,000+ members and over $500 million in total assets.

At this event, author and speaker Robby Slaughter will be presenting on Influence: Making Change Actually Happen at Work. Robby is the author of four books, including The Unbeatable Recipe for Networking Events, and has spoken to audiences of dozens to thousands throughout the United States. You may have also read Robby’s columns locally in the Indianapolis Business Journal, on Inside Indiana Business, or in many other publications.

Doors open at 9:00 am; programs run from 9:15 am to 10:15 am and include a light breakfast and refreshments. The event series is free to the general public; registration is required at www.cranecu.org/executiveseries.
