The Gathering for Change Agents with Dr. Keith Merron: Art of Transformation
October 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CDT
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something,
build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
~ Buckminster Fuller
Our thoughts and feelings about ourselves, other people, work, money, science, the universe, life… death (and so on) – are shaped by our beliefs, assumptions, goals, desires, fears and resulting strategies.
In brilliant design, these “paradigms” filter what we see, hear, sense and feel. Our brains and receptive systems can’t possibly process every bit of information, experience and energy that’s available to us. Paradigms enable us to navigate life with more ease, familiarity, predictability and consistency. And… because these paradigms also restrict what we can perceive and lock us in a set of views and patterns, they are by nature, quite limiting.
Here’s the thing (or at least one “thing”). Paradigms serve a valuable and necessary function and… life changes. We change. The world changes. And as we evolve, many of the paradigms we’ve held as “truth” individually and collectively – hold us in ineffective, unsatisfying, and often dysfunctional patterns. So… what’s a change agent to do?
Join us next Wednesday for an invaluable presentation and discussion facilitated by Dr. Keith Merron on the “Art of Transformation” and how to successfully shift paradigms to create sustainable change.
Keith is the founder and Managing Partner of Leadership Pathways, Inc., an organizational consulting and leadership development firm dedicated to helping organizations with bold visions achieve sustainable high performance and industry leadership.

Keith has designed and led over 100 seminars and workshops for leaders and helped create some of the most innovative leadership training programs in the country. He received his Doctorate from Harvard University, where his studies spanned the fields of human and organization development.
