Surviving the Chaos of Change
January 26, 2022 2:00 pm EST/11 am PST
Projects, by nature, are a unique endeavor that often results in a change of some kind. In addition, our work environments are constantly changing. When the changes are not introduced or handled well, people will resist, making the change more disruptive than it needs to be. If this resistance is not managed properly, it can undermine project or operational success.
This session discusses people’s reactions to change and how to navigate and manage those changes well. It also includes a one-page handout for easy reference after the session. After this session, you will be able to:
- Identify the reactions to change, including four levels of resistance and the time, influence, and support associated with each level of resistance.
- Understand what motivates people to accept the change (or not) and become a powerful proponent for it.
- Develop strategies to overcome each level of resistance so you (and your organization) can survive and thrive!
