Developing Leadership Resilience: 5 Strategies to Increase Your Effectiveness During Change
Most change models don’t address how to increase our capacity to handle change. To evolve in today’s changing environment, we need to build these capabilities as there’s no end to the multiple changes that happen at work. The impact of these changes can sidetrack your people and stall your organization. These days, people find it extremely challenging to keep up with change in their organizations given the relentless pressure to do more, faster and better. Without a high Resilience Intelligence (RQ), it can be difficult to stay on top of all the change and be strategic in our response. In this interactive, powerful, thought-provoking keynote, participants will gain a unique perspective and acquire the critical mindset and skills needed to deal with multiple changes that they can immediately put to use.
Effective Change Leadership for a Multi-Generational Workforce
Not all generational generalities are foolproof: some baby boomers are as high tech as the savviest millennials, plenty of Gen-Xs put in long hours, many millennials prefer verbal communication over technology and are as dedicated to their jobs as boomers. Given that we know ‘one size doesn’t fit all’ regarding change management, we also know that leading our people through change also requires a variety of tactics. At this engaging and interactive keynote you will learn: strategies to leverage generational intelligence; what all generations need to adapt to change; techniques to lead and manage change across the generations; and debunking the myths of the stereotypes of the generations.
Not Having a Breakdown Over Outbreaks: Mastering Change During Times of Uncertainty
Healthcare is under tremendous pressure to keep things together when real outbreaks or metaphorical ‘outbreaks’ – such as new technology implementations – hit at rampant speeds. Agile changes are required to keep ahead and manage these types of outbreaks. The impact of these changes can sidetrack you, your colleagues, stall your organization and even allow mistakes to happen. These days, people find it extremely challenging to keep up with change in their organizations given the relentless pressure to do more – faster, better and with less! What most change models don’t address is how to improve our capability to handle change. Research has shown that resilience – the ability to handle multiple changes effectively – can be learned. All of us can develop our ability to be resilient and have fewer ‘breakdowns’ to whatever type of outbreak we may be experiencing. In this interactive, powerful, and thought-provoking keynote, you will learn how to acquire the critical mindsets and techniques needed to deal with multiple changes even in times of uncertainty!
Consumer, Food & Retail: Buying In to Change the Easy Way
Retailers must increase their resilience and ability to quickly react to changing demands in the marketplace in order to survive. Consumers expect information quickly, accurately and tend to not like changes unless it’s going to really benefit them. Changes that involve price increases, staff turnover, and technology can quickly make consumers leave your brand if not handled well. Consumers are looking at purchasing goods via eCommerce instead of the traditional bricks and mortar businesses. How can your business prepare its customers and staff for changes? How much information should you share? How can you handle negative consumer feedback on changes, retain the consumer and bring them even closer to your brand? How do you prepare your teams for changes you don’t even know are coming?
Associations/Human Resources: Change Management is the HR Challenge
Building resilience and the capability to change in your workforce is not an easy task. An organizations’ sense of adaptation, recovery and bounce back following changes of any kind can manifest in very different ways. How do we prepare leaders and staff for the changes? What tools can HR give them to maintain their productivity during disruptive change? How do we take the buzzwords of engagement, efficiencies, and innovation and make them practical and come alive? Associations and HR are often the supports that the rest of the organization goes to. How do we ensure that your teams have the necessary skills and mindsets to support others?
