On October 17, 2018, the combined membership of CCODN and ACMP Ohio met to try out some techniques for structuring sponsor conversations for maximum success. Deb Stets and Sue Dolloff blended the structure from “Crucial Conversations” with selected habits from “7 Habits of Highly Effective People" to deliver this engaging evening.
We are excited to partner with CCODN again in 2019! Check out the gallery!

Resilience – explore ways we can help people and orgs build their resilience.
Readiness – share how you can tell if people are really ready for change?
Reinforcement – share tactics that work for you!

Members across the state met with the board of directors, including three newly elected directors, to discuss how ACMP can provide the most value to you and the work you do. The discussion was an outstanding opportunity for personal engagement between the board and members that provided input to chapter plans and aspirations for the new year.
We welcomed back Barbara Trautlein, PhD, the creator of the CQ®/Change Intelligence® strengths-based assessment of change leader styles in our April meeting. With her characteristic high-energy and fun style, she led us through several exercises to demonstrate our change leader styles. We learned how to best use our strengths without overdoing them. We also had the opportunity to laugh at our styles a bit, all in good fun! Check out the gallery!
We each received a copy of Barbara’s book Change Intelligence: Use the Power of CQ to Lead Change that Sticks and as follow-up to the workshop, Barbara shared links to a variety of resources and research. This was a value-packed event!
