Ensuring Teams Are Ready for What’s Next

Tuesday 1:15 PM – 2:15 PM

Session Description

For decades, leaders have been taught strategies to perfect circumstances to reduce change resistance and gain “buy-in” to strategic initiatives. Our research illustrates that change resistance still drains almost 2.5 productive hours per day per employee. How can leaders stop making change least disruptive to their people and instead build willing teams who ensure that change is least disruptive to the business?

This counter-intuitive session reveals the modern leader’s role to deliver teams that are ready for what’s next. Leaders will walk away with simple tools to call their team to greatness quickly align and adapt to organizational goals.
