An organization resistant to change is destined to stagnation and eventual obsolescence. It used to be that if you always did, what you always did, you always got, what you always got. If it isn’t broken, but in today’s world, if you always do, what you always did….you are out of business!
In this workshop, we will delve into:
- Change is not the enemy, but your attitude towards it certainly is!
- Change is inevitable, but personal growth is optional.
- When you judge change, you use your prejudices and preconceived ideas. Instead, you will learn why you should assess the situation.
- Do you encourage team members to challenge the status quo?
- Do you pave the road to facilitate change, or put up roadblocks?
- Incremental change is no longer enough! You need to become a disruptor!
Value to members:
Individuals, and as a consequence, organizations, get complacent in their winning formula, working hard in the business, instead of working FOR the business. You know you are better than the competition.
The Coronavirus is not the enemy, but how you choose to deal with it is!
- Create an environment open to new ideas and change
- Learn to ASSESS a situation, rather than JUDGE IT
- Understand that incremental change is just the price of entry!
- Understand how to grow in the face of change
- Implement a culture of CURIOSITY for yourself & your team
