InBusiness Magazine Features Spectrum Brands’ Own

August 16, 2018

Inside Spectrum Brands

This month’s In Business magazine features Spectrum Brands’ own Patty Glines-Kotecki and her appearance at Madison’s CultureCon event. CultureCon is a two-day event “on a mission to impact the workplace by connecting humans to spread positive change around organizational culture.” Glines-Kotecki led a breakout session and shared her thoughts on managing change in the workplace.

“Patty Glines-Kotecki’s title with Spectrum Brands is Organizational Effectiveness Leader, but she’s a social scientist at heart. As such, she likens the 15,000-employee organization she works for to a laboratory.

During the recent CultureCon event at the Madison Concourse Hotel, she spoke on building a change-adept culture and, in so doing, offered lessons from a change manager. Her basic message is an oft-repeated one: change is inevitable. Are you ready to manage it, especially as it becomes more and more complex?

Another part of her message is that while change is inevitable, well-managed change is not. She offers a simple model for change management that is heavily dependent on continuous learning for managers, which might meet with more resistance than the actual change itself, and she offers ways to do battle with the inevitable barriers to change.”
