Who is Jeanne Goldie and what does she know about organizational change?
In 2020 I gave a TED talk on innovation in the corporate sector and how we’re looking for innovation in all the wrong places. For the past 20 years I’ve worked in the Financial Services industry leading organizational sales strategy after doing similar work in the government and non-profit sector. I’ve worked on projects as varied as redesigning public housing, historic preservation, tech start-up companies, insurance sales, opening an African American research library, and had a really wild stint as a wedding planner. (Yes, there is video). Did I mention I was once an accountant as well? (no video of that – sorry). I’m a proud Alum of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and the Andrew Young School of Public Policy at Georgia State University.
All the opinions in this blog are my own, and do not in any way reflect on my current employer. As a matter of fact, I will only be sharing one story from my current position, involving the desert, teambuilding and SPF 70. You’ll know it when you find it. Otherwise they’re off limits.
Unfunded mandates, budget shortfalls, regulatory adventures, zero authority but total responsibility for results, I’ve lived them all and learned a few good lessons along the way. I’ll share those here, and hopefully you’ll get some answers, not to mention a few laughs. You can reach me via the contact page or by commenting on a post. Looking forward to hearing from you.
