Speakers Series: How to Lead Change When We Don't Have Time (SSLCNT)

Jan 24, 2014, 8:30am-10:30am

Audience: This session is open to CPM managers and employees.

Description: Are you leading or being asked to lead a change initiative? Do you sometimes feel stuck when leading the change? If you have answered yes to any of these questions then please join us.

Constant change is a reality for successful organizations. They must achieve their short-term goals and continually adapt to their environments to stay relevant. It used to be that change was an event, now it’s business as usual. Expectations of leaders have changed too; they must deliver their current goals while transitioning their teams to new ways of thinking and working. The successful leader must balance performance and ability to change.

This session shares insights and practical advice on how to successfully manage individuals and teams through change initiatives, and it addresses the following questions:
 

      • What are the five must-have success factors to successfully implement a change?
      • What needs to be true for people to change their behaviour?
      • How to get people to care about taking on changes?
      • How to manage resistance to change?
      • How to minimize change fatigue?
