Design & Influence Irresistible Change™

Change gets stuck when your organization finds a way to resist it. The key to successful implementation, then, is to make your initiative irresistible. As a change agent, your job is a combination of designing change in advance and then personally influencing others in the moment.

After this program you will:

  • Understand how change works
  • Gain clarity about what you are really trying to change
  • Design key elements of your change initiative
  • Identify the areas you need to work on so you don’t get stuck
  • Learn what you and your team can do to personally influence change.

Each participant in this workshop will receive and use the Irresistible Change Guide™.

The Design & Influence Irresistible Change™ program is also a regularly running public webinar series.

Inside Influence:  Leading Change From the Middle

A common view of change is that it must start from the top of the organization. However, change is often instigated and led from pockets within an organization. In fact many roles, such as IT, engineering, project management, process improvement, strategic planning and internal HR/OD practitioners, require influencing other people in the organization to change the way they work. Since senior leaders can’t do all the work of change, managers and employees further down on the org chart are frequently tapped to take on change in addition to their day job.

In this workshop, we will explore the role of the internal change agent, with its risks, rewards, advantages and challenges. You will learn how to leverage the role and how to best influence organizational change without authority.

Ten Ways Change Gets Stuck

SignThe path to implementing change in an organization isn’t always smooth. On the way, you run into frequent speed bumps, wrong way signs, and even concrete barriers. These road hazards on the way to change act as obstacles that prevent you from moving forward. Despite your best intentions, you and your change initiative can get stuck.

In this workshop, you will learn the warning signs that your change initiative is stalled, and identify some of the root causes that may be preventing the organization from making progress. We will also discuss what you can do to get unstuck, and how to avoid getting stuck in the first place. Bring your challenges and your experience to this interactive session where we’ll uncover the common obstacles to organizational change.

Leading Your Team Through Change

leader shipLeaders in your organization usually have authority with those who ultimately need to change the way they work. Because of their authority, there are some very important things that only they can do to drive change forward. The Leading Your Team Through Change program develops the capability of mid- to senior-level managers to provide essential leadership for change initiatives.

Participants will gain a clear understanding of the importance of the unique role leaders play in organizational change and learn steps they can take to ensure the success of change initiatives they are leading.
