The online event is the second in the series. Participants who have not attended the first session are welcome - there are no prerequisites.

As a follow up to our COVID 19 response event in April, we’re going to reconvene! We’ll share the results of this first session and delve into even more important topics.

Our initial session revealed the challenges of maintaining rapport in a virtual environment and the need to respond to the profound changes impacting our teams and companies.

Our ACMP PNW chapter is inviting our members to come together in collaborative session(s) to rapidly develop an action-oriented approach to address this evolving situation. Our focus is to help us create, as a community, tangible, actionable things we can say and do with our leaders. We believe that we are better together and that with our combined knowledge and experience in the art and science of change management, we can craft a meaningful go-forward strategy for us all.

Let’s gather in a facilitated co-creation session to:

  • Develop our skills to lead change in a virtual environment effectively
  • Build rapport even at a distance to gain the trust we need for our work
  • Collaborate on our approach to being a coach, even when we don’t have this title


  1. Attendees will participate in a facilitated session to collaboratively asses the current situation and design an approach to practically address challenges our profession is facing
  2. Attendees will participate in co-creating a guidance document which will summarize the results of our working session(s)
  3. Attendees will participate in an all teach, all learn style session, contributing ideas and information to form a body of knowledge that we’ll share to our chapter membership
