It's Not About The Cookie

The way you prime and frame a message can have huge impacts on the way it is received. The right message communicated the wrong way can almost guarantee a new approach or initiative will fail. In this session, Melina will uses her fun and engaging “it’s not about the cookie” framework to help anyone lead through change with ease.
