Ready, Set, Change, AGAIN: Building Change Resilience
Most of us are required to lead change – regardless of our job title. Our staff, clients, and colleagues may think they are ‘change ready,’ yet no one is prepared for change that might have a negative impact on them or increase their workload. To evolve and be set for a future filled with change, we need to strengthen the capability to adapt.
With his experiences leading change initiatives with diverse populations, Gregg guides the audience using insights, engaging stories and solid takeaways – with a healthy dose of humour. Attendees will learn ways to break out of status quo change management thinking and discover people-centric approaches that actually succeed.
• Use a powerful process to get out of problem-based mindset and move into solution-focused thinking to create positive change.
• Identify unique ways to accomplish more when under pressure to perform.
• Discover a simple technique to help team members maintain their productivity during change.
Industry 4.0: Manage Rapid Technological Change
Is your organization ready for Industry 4.0? Rapidly changing technology, the shifting economy, and the need to compete in a global marketplace amidst regulatory changes all create a challenging environment. As a result, we need to not only be ‘change ready’ but also agile in anticipating the future. Consumers expect accurate information quickly and tend to not like change unless it’s going to really benefit them.
In this keynote, Gregg will explore proven strategies to prepare our leaders, employees, and customers to adapt to the changes we know are going to happen but aren’t necessarily prepared for. Attendees will gain tools and techniques to navigate the rapid pace of technological change and prepare for Industry 4.0 – the next industrial revolution.
Developing Leadership Resilience: Increase Your Effectiveness During Change
In today’s environment, all of us lead change, regardless of our job titles. We know being a change leader is not an easy task. People only have two options when encountering change. We can be open – or we can be closed. Most change models don’t address ways to increase our capacity to handle change or explain how to help our teams be open to organizational changes. We need to build our skills to cope with rapidly changing environments.
Without a high Resilience Intelligence (RQ), it can be difficult to stay on top of all the changes, lead our teams and be strategic in our responses. In this interactive, powerful, thought-provoking keynote, attendees will gain a unique perspective on leading change. We will also discuss the critical mindset and skills needed to adapt to change AND to create positive change that can immediately be put to use.
• Strategies for being a positive force in the organization by turning negativity into positivity.
• Practical skills to become more strategic in leading and responding to change.
• Identify momentum building strategies when the team is feeling ‘stuck’.
