A manager that leads change does so through creativity, innovation, external awareness, flexibility, resilience, strategic thinking and vision. What if you can’t find that person, that champion for change? Then you must create one. This session will discuss how you go about developing a person to become a manager who can be a champion for change.

Mr. Rizwan Shah, Organizational Culture Advisor at the Department of Energy, advises senior officials and their organizations to improve organizational culture and performance reliability. He works closely with the Office of Human Capital, the National Training Center, and other resource teams to develop and deliver a variety of education and training materials to DOE leaders and personnel.

Mr. Shah brings a depth of experience built over a 23-year career with the Federal government.

His areas of expertise include:
  • Organizational Culture
  • Organizational Development
  • Organizational Change
  • Human Resources
