Join ODF community members and Ron Carucci, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Navalent, and also a keynote speaker at ODF’s 2019 Annual Conference in a conversation exploring designing for integrity.
Ron has recently completed a 15-year longitudinal study of more than 3200 interviews conducted over 210 organizational assessments which reveals four systemic patterns that directly shape whether or not people will show up with integrity – fully themselves, with all of their best ideas, honest about what they see and think, and ready to contribute to the organization’s greater good.
In this session, Ron will preview the findings of his 15-year study offering ideas in advance of his keynote presentation at the conference in April on where and how honesty is, in fact, a design issue for organizations.
Ron will share his thoughts to launch the discussion, and then we encourage all call participants to actively join the conversation. We will share our experiences designing for positive and productive behavior and our experiences of design that ignored issues of honesty and integrity.
Ron Carucci is co-founder and managing partner at Navalent, working with CEOs and executives pursuing transformational change for their organizations, leaders, and industries. He has a thirty year track record helping some of the world’s most influential executives tackle challenges of strategy, organization and leadership.

He is the bestselling author of 8 books. He led a ten year longitudinal study on executive transition to find out why more than 50% of leaders fail within their first 18 months of appointment, and uncovering the four differentiating capabilities that set successful leaders apart. Those findings are highlighted in his ground breaking Amazon #1 book Rising To Power, co-authored with Eric Hansen. These findings are also summarized by Ron in a popular HBR article. HBR selected that research as one of 2016’s “Ideas that Mattered Most”, and he recently presented it on their Live series. Ron is also a 2-time TEDx speaker.
He has helped CEOs, their executive teams, and their enterprises redesign themselves and build appropriate leadership strategies to ensure the current and next generation of leaders have the capabilities required by the organization.
