Workshop A: Your Change Initiative

Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

What’s it all about? Change initiatives and strategic visions are just fantasies until employees make them a reality. They become reality when employees engage in the specific behaviors that will make the hoped-for-outcome possible. Thus, it’s critical for HR leaders to know how to help leadership understand the facets of human nature that most impact an employee’s response to change, so they execute change in such a way that it works with—and not against—human nature.  Doing so, helps minimize resistance, maximize employees’ ability to respond resourcefully to change, and maximize employees’ ability to make the change initiative a success. David Lee joins our “Take it Home Tuesday” lineup to discuss just that.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Uncover how to help leadership “reverse engineer” end results into the specific behaviors that employees need to engage in to make the end result happen.
  • Learn to empower managers at all levels to communicate what these critical behaviors and actions look and sound like in general, and for each specific job, so that employees know exactly how they can best contribute.
  • Acquire tools to engage employees in productive conversations around change, so that leadership gets the information they need to create an executable plan, minimize resistance, get ongoing feedback as the plan unfolds, and prevent unnecessary obstacles from derailing success.
