Presented by Nikki Rashada McCord

Following the status quo does not lead a team or organization to the next phase of development. Mediocrity stifles creativity and forward progress. Understanding the tools a leader needs to understand and use their individual power to advance DEI goals will catapult them out of their stasis and break everyone out of the status quo.


In this 1-hour session, attendees will:

  • Build their confidence to take a chance on solving a problem
  • Demonstrate difficult decision-making that moves your team from mediocrity to excellence
  • Learn to value experimentation, so that the perfect is no longer the enemy of the good


  • Qualifies for one clock hour towards CEM recertification
  • A portion of the registration fees will be donated to the IAEE Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Scholarship.
  • IAEE Rocky Mountain Chapter members are invited to attend our annual meeting immediately following the program
