Change is good, but sometimes it is also hard. Emerging tech trends are also good, but sometimes the change needed to implement those emerging trends feels like scaling a mountain! David discusses the current social networking transformation taking place, how it affects our jobs, and how we can deal with those changes. Then David discuss changes a library needs to make to meet and participate in our new online, participatory world.

  24. 24. Change, the old way • Leaders simply ordered changes • Goal: getting the change accomplished • When it fails, leaders review details of the change
  25. 25. They’re looking in the wrong place
  26. 26. Change is external
  27. 27. Transition is internal
  28. 28. Most leaders base the project on getting the change accomplished rather than on getting people through the transition.
  29. 29. 3 Steps to Transition 1. Saying goodbye 2. Shifting into neutral 3. Moving forward
  30. 30. 1. Saying Goodbye
  31. 31. Letting Go of the Past
  32. 32. 2. Shifting into Neutral
  33. 33. 100% Focus on Details
  34. 34. Some get stuck here!
  35. 35. 3. Moving Forward
  36. 36. Resistance Will Happen!
  37. 37. Resistance isn’t the problem •Management’s reaction to resistance creates the problems •The resistors probably don’t see it as resistance - they see it as survival
  38. 38. Three levels of resistance 1. Information-based 2. Physiological and emotional 3. Bigger stuff
  39. 39. 1. Information-based •Not enough information •Disagreement with the idea itself •Not familiar with idea •Confusion
  40. 40. 2. Physiological/ Emotional • My job is threatened • My future with the organization • Respect of my peers
  41. 41. 3. Bigger Stuff • Personal history • Who you are – race, religion, etc • Significant disagreement over values • Transference - the person being resisted represents someone else (fill in the blank)
  42. 42. How to Navigate Through Change
  43. 43. Just for Leaders • You've already come to terms with the change • Understand why people might not want to change • Understand that it's the transitions, not the change, that's causing waves
  44. 44. Steps to Take • Describe the change succinctly • Plan carefully • Help people respectfully let go • Constant communication • Create temporary solutions when needed • Model new behavior!
  45. 45. Don't do these things! • Don't confuse novelty with innovation • Don't confuse motion with action • Don't keep something going if it “still has a few good years of life”
  46. 46. for the techies...
  47. 47. If you refuse to change: • Missed career opportunities • you'll miss out on the opportunity to expand your network and your ability to develop new relationships • You’ll miss out on the possibility of shaping your new destiny and reality
