Session Description

Change is easy, leading change isn’t. As the famed philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli stated “there is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage, than to initiate a new order of things. For the initiator has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in those who would profit the new.”

During this workshop participants will learn how to plan for change, lead transitions, and respond to the three most common reasons people resist change.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the types of change that you may encounter as a leader, and understand how each type can affect you and your team
  • Effectively communicate about what is changing (and not) in a positive, motivating way even if you are unsettled about it
  • Understand why people may “resist” change (including you), what might be causing it, and what you can do to manage it
  • Feel better prepared to have difficult conversations with team members who may be having a tough time adjusting to change
  • Adopt team behaviors and “norms” that will help your team(s) stay resilient through rapid change
