Dr. Tom O'Connor

CEO, Transforming Communication

Technical challenges take resources, time, and effort to address, but they expand rather than change the accepted ways of doing business. On the other hand, adaptive challenges involve a fundamental change in an organization’s culture and way of doing business. Join us as we go in-depth with Transforming Communication CEO Tom O’Connor to understand how an adaptive approach helps leaders overcome chronic organizational issues.
