CHANGE CHALLENGED CHARLIE
You’re about to lead your team through a sizeable change. As you think about each team member, you are confident the objectives of this change will be achieved, until you remember Change Challenged Charlie. You know that Charlie is super resistant to changes in process, systems and…well…everything. Your decision on how to approach Charlie is the difference between buy-in and resistance.
I don’t like change!
Change is happening even faster than before…blah, blah, blah. You’ve heard it a million times.
The more important question is what are you doing about it? As a leader you’re responsible for people engagement and retention, productivity and navigating the multitude of changes that are already here.
The problem? Your team is on change overload, they’re disengaged and on the verge of burnout. At this point, lower productivity is a given.
The solution? Maximizing the emotional connection to change, so your team can move from resistance to resilience. Unlike the industrial revolution, the human age requires you to engage and connect with each person on your team like never before. It doesn’t matter if it’s a new organizational structure, process or mindset you must establish a connection.
In other words, it requires you to change better, not lead better change. Doing so will create more team engagement, productivity and trust so you can focus on making a difference.
I help leaders connect emotionally to their teams to create meaningful and successful change. I offer four talks:
SEE ERIC SPEAK
The question “why do people choose not to change” is what has fueled my passion on why others, and even myself, choose the status quo over the possibility of something better.
My own personal journey through change has taught me that the keys to successful change are understanding how you process change and how you navigate your own resistance.
As a person whose purpose is “I’m here to help”, it’s important to me that you, the leader of a team, are successful in guiding your team through the messy middle of change in a way that’s fun, engaging, and with ideas you can implement today.
Over the last 17 years, I've learned, engaged and been a catalyst within a Fortune 400 financial services firm
I’m a certified Prosci Change Practitioner who specializes in building change capability
I’m a certified Leadership Strategies Effective Facilitator who asks the right questions to inspire behavioral change
My ideas will teach you how to change better, so you can lead your team through change with the power of emotional connection
I understand organizational change only happens when individuals work through their own resistance and align with change
