MEGA SESSION Make Change Work™: Leading Change in a World of Constant Change

SHRM 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition
You will learn how to effectively lead and influence change in your teams, departments, and organizations.

Despite all of the emphasis on effective change, statistics indicate that organizations are no more successful today at making change work thatn they were 20 years ago. That is because change is over managed and under led. This session provides practical tools to help you engage followers, create buy-in, overcome resistance, and make change a strategic advantage in these transformational times. This session will help you:

  • Learn the four reasons why individuals and organizations have difficulty adapting to change and what you can do to overcome them.
  • Adopt seven strategies that build buy-in, engagement, and support for change.
  • Learn techniques to overcome resistance to change.
  • Learn how to anchor change in the culture of your operation.
