Unlocking the Power of Human Organizations

Our organizations have been run on very "mechanical" models for centuries, but today's social media revolution, with its focus on more human principles, is showing us a more powerful way of leading and managing that has the potential to really transform our organizations. But humanizing our organizations is no easy task - it will require change at all levels, from culture, to process, to structure, to individual behavior.

In this session, Jamie Notter, co-author of Humanize: How People-Centric Organizations Succeed in a Social World, will explore what it takes to create a more human organization and provide some practical, actionable advice for starting the change process in your organization.

Jamie Notter is a Vice President at Management Solutions Plus, where he leads the Consulting Division. Jamie started his career in the field of international conflict resolution, where he spent six years designing and delivering training programs in areas of ethnic conflict (if you get a chance, ask him about the awesome people on the island of Cyprus). Jamie then moved into working with organizations, initially as a diversity trainer and consultant, and later leading his private management consulting practice. In 2008 Jamie created the consulting division at Management Solutions Plus, Inc. (an association management company).

An accomplished speaker, Jamie travels extensively delivering keynote addresses, seminars and workshops to corporate, nonprofit, association, and government audiences covering leadership, conflict, generations, and making our organizations more human.
