  3. 3. What do you want to learn today?
  4. 4. Why does the work you do here matter?
  5. 5. Why does this hospital matter?
  6. 6. Agenda • How you can learn to embrace change • Break • How you can help yourself and this hospital be more successful
  7. 7. Primary Sources
  8. 8. Exercise 1 Identify a change that is happening right now at work. Why are you resisting that change?
  9. 9. For anything to change, someone has to start acting differently. Can you get people to start behaving differently? (p.4)
  10. 10. If you want to be effective at helping others change their behavior, then build a reputation for proactively changing your own behavior
  11. 11. Change Metaphor
  12. 12. Rider - Rational – Deliberates, analyzes, looks into the future – Provides planning and direction Elephant – Emotional – Feels pain and pleasure – Provides the energy
  13. 13. Direct the Rider Follow the bright spots: Investigate and clone the successes
  14. 14. Destination postcards: Shows the Rider where you are headed and the Elephant why the journey is worthwhile Change is easier when you know where you are going and why it is worth it
  15. 15. Script the critical moves Be specific about the behavior you want to change
  16. 16. Direct the Rider • What looks like resistance is often a lack of clarity • Clarity dissolves resistance
  17. 17. Motivate the Elephant Find the feeling Motivation comes from confidence. The Elephant has to believe that it’s capable of conquering the change
  18. 18. Shrink the change: Break down the change until it no longer spooks the Elephant Sense of progress is critical
  19. 19. Make change a matter of identity, not consequences Who am I? What kind of situation is this? What would someone like me do in this situation?
  20. 20. Grow your people Encourage a growth mindset by praising effort rather than skill
  21. 21. Growth Mindset • Talent is NOT fixed unless you believe that it is. Treat talent as something almost everyone can earn, not that just a few people own. • Everyone can learn to work smarter 21
  22. 22. Motivate the Elephant Change is hard because people wear themselves out. What looks like laziness is often exhaustion
  23. 23. Shape the Path Tweak the environment. When the situation changes, behavior changes
  24. 24. Build Habits Supportive habits that are easy to embrace and advance the new behavior
  25. 25. Action Triggers: Decisions you make to execute a certain action when you encounter a certain situation
  26. 26. Checklists help educate people about what is best by showing then the right way to do something
  27. 27. Rally the Herd Behavior is contagious; help it spread
  28. 28. Shape the path What looks like a people problem is often a situation problem. When you shape the path, you make the change more likely, no matter what’s happening with the Rider and the Elephant
  29. 29. The law of crappy systems trumps the law of crappy people 29
