Mindset Matters: Change Mindset and Change Opportunity for Success

Erin Kurchina – VP, Talent Development and Transformation, KurMeta Group

Transformations are hard and are expected to be more challenging post-COVID-19. Numerous studies point to cultural and behavioral change and reskilling as the keys to successful innovation efforts. Indeed, success in any change effort, technology or otherwise, depends on the way people react to or lead through transformational change. Organizations that identify and address the pervasive mindsets needed to support their transformation efforts are four times more likely to succeed in achieving cultural and behavior change than companies that overlook this stage.

A life-long learner, Erin holds a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Toronto, where she also pursued Ph.D. studies in leadership. Erin holds a Canadian Institute of Corporate Directors ICD.D designation and is a Certified Coach.
