Leading Change
Change is accelerating in our business world, and those who can embrace and drive it will be the winners. Globalization, restructuring, and workforce diversity are changing the way business is done, and leaders often must adapt at warp speed. With constant change, we have to do more with less, faster, cheaper and better. Doing our best is no longer enough. Leaders must frequently face changes in the business environment that seem to require miracles to overcome. The reality is that business is often a game of setting seemingly impossible challenges and making progress on these challenges. Resistance to change is widespread, and people leading change must often do so against a tide of resistance and predictions of failure. Fear of failure and disappointment are frequently the motivation for this approach. Often these well-intentioned people call their attitudes "realistic" or "practical." Unfortunately, people who resist new ideas, and change in general, ignore the influence of their own attitudes and beliefs on their “reality”. Successful change leaders must understand how people react to change, and be ready and able to lead and support their teams in successfully navigating required changes. These “change agents” must learn to personally deal with the pressure of constant change, and even welcome it, learning to surf the waves of change rather than being dragged under the waves. This module will provide you with an understanding of the change process, the role of resistance, and your role in leading change, so that you and your people can embrace change as a doorway to new possibilities.
