EXECUTIVE EDUCATION | Leading Others Through Change
The only constant in the world is change. Technological advancements, unpredictable business landscapes, and shifting cultural norms are impacting work environments like never before. As such, leaders and the organizations they represent must constantly reinvent themselves or risk becoming obsolete. Doing so is not easy as changing individual behavior is difficult. Changing organizational behaviors that lead to real business results feels impossible. Today, the vast majority of individual and organizational change efforts fail. And yet, there are leaders who truly make a difference and positively impact their personal and professional surroundings. They often understand the “science” around influencing others.
Leading Others Through Change attendees will explore the concepts of adaptive and technical change and discover why we often default to applying technical solutions to adaptive problems. In a multi-media driven environment, leaders will learn how better influence others by harnessing proven behavior science techniques and models. They will be challenged to think critically about their organization’s power dynamics and better comprehend what truly inspires those around us to take action. Leaders will consider their own “change challenges” as they learn how to connect personal, social, and structural factors to results.
Key concepts covered in the two half-day session include:
Learn why most change efforts fail
Explore best practices for engaging and leading others through change, on an ethical foundation, to achieve desired results
Understand why people do not truly transition without an emotional connection being made
Explore best practice change management models which help enable measurable results
Go over the “Top 7” ways leaders must get out in front of change efforts if they are to be successful
