Effectiveness in the HR role hinges upon leading through change and crisis. By learning to lead change (not just manage change or cope with change), which includes developing change leadership capacity in their organizations, HR professionals are poised to make a strategic, bottom-line impact. Participants will walk-away with both actionable tactics to influence change more effectively themselves as well as real-world strategies to develop this capability in the leaders, teams, and organizations they serve.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to lead through change and crisis by effectively collaborating with stakeholders up, down, and across your workplace to increase your impact for your organization, team, and career.
  • Diagnose one’s own change leader style (including strengths, blind spots, and developmental tactics), discover how to coach others to develop theirs, and identify how to assess and enhance one’s organization’s approach to building change leadership capability.
  • Reframe resistance to change from enemy to ally and explore how to leverage resistance as a powerful source of information to adapt one’s influence style to build relationships that get results.
  • Explore actionable insights from neuroscience and psychology, relevant implications derived from a global database of 20,000 change leaders-at-all-levels, and real-world experience leading change in a wide variety of industries about how to engage the heart, enlighten the head, and equip the hands to get people moving in positive, new directions so change sticks.
  • Emerge as a more competent and confident – and less stressed and frustrated – leader of change, to help oneself and one’s organization lead through this time of massive global crisis as well as to build an enabling foundation to succeed through all the inevitable changes to come.
