Conscious Change Leadership: Mastering the Six Pillars Required to Succeed at Transformation
Our thirty years of action research has surfaced six requirements leaders need to master to succeed in transforming their organizations for the realities of today?s business environment. These six foundations comprise an advanced approach to transformation: Conscious Change Leadership. Beyond change management, and even beyond change leadership, transformation demands more of leaders?to be proactive, aware of a broader set of organizational and human dynamics, inclusive, and able to design and lead the process of transformation in co-creative ways. This session describes the six pillars of Conscious Change Leadership and provides pragmatic tools and strategies to succeed at each. Conscious Change Leadership is not a quick-fix approach; it is a serious reinvention of leadership for leaders who already recognize that past practices will not get us where our organizations need to go. Leaders must develop themselves so they can do what is truly needed and model it in the organization. If you want breakthrough results, stepping out of the box into Conscious Change Leadership is your gateway.
Leading Transformation: Navigating Your Way to the Future
Transformational change has become the predominant type of change challenging organizations today. It is the least understood, and by far, the hardest to navigate successfully. This presentation defines transformational change, highlighting its unique requirements, and explores how leaders need to transform their traditional practices to be successful in their changing reality. We will present the three essential areas requiring leadership attention from the beginning, the need for a change process roadmap, and how to set up change infrastructures fit for transformation. We will discuss the predictable people dynamics that make the ride so challenging, and how to prepare the organization for the roller coaster of transformation so that people can more consciously expect its complexity, respond rapidly, and succeed at it.
Master the Human Dynamics of Change
One of the most common complaints we hear from leaders of changing organizations is that their people are resistant, confused, and slowing down progress. Why is it so hard to get your people mobilized behind the changes your organization needs to succeed? Why aren?t your managers taking the ball and running with it? This keynote provides you with much-needed understanding about the importance of mastering the people dynamics of change. It offers pragmatic strategies to set up your changes so your people will actually understand your new directions, support the work, and want to give their all to succeed. Explore what threatens and produces resistance, and how to turn people?s resistance into commitment. Learn how to design your changes to meet people?s six core needs and strategies to help them excel while working through their natural reactions to change.
This session shows you how to accelerate your change by planning with a people-savvy head and responding to your people with an open heart. The program is interactive, inspirational and personal, and will mobilize your understanding and enthusiasm for aligning your workforce?and yourself!?behind the change results you seek.
Building Your Organization?s Change Capability: Making the Strategic Decision to Succeed at Enterprise Transformation
The complexity, urgency, and magnitude of change have outpaced most organizations? skills at leading and implementing it. The costs of poor change leadership is too high to ignore. The solution is simple. We must build enterprise capability to ensure success in mission-critical changes. That capability takes the form of leading change as a strategic discipline. All organizations employ strategic disciplines and standard practices around key functions?finance, marketing, sales, HR, IT, etc., but overlook this crucial approach when leading change. The five strategic disciplines for change include the Enterprise Change Agenda, using one common change process methodology, establishing change infrastructures, a Change Center of Excellence, and the Strategic Change Office. This presentation is an information-packed session that will alter the way leaders think about leading change at the enterprise level. It will call them into taking proactive steps to ensure that they can succeed all of the organization?s change efforts.
Avoiding the Predictable Mistakes in Leading Change ? or ? Ten Critical Actions to Support the Success of Mission-Critical Changes (Note: This program can be framed as a Risk Assessment on known mistakes in leading change, or as a recommendation of the ten critical actions that leaders can take to consciously support their success in change. The topics are the same, but the positioning is unique to each version.)
In this thought-provoking session for executives, change sponsors, change leaders, and consultants, Ms. Ackerman Anderson shares 35 years of experience on why more than 60% of all change efforts fail and how to avoid the most commonly made mistakes, or, how to proactively set up your change efforts for success from the beginning. No matter what the industry or type of change, audiences will walk away with insights on how to rethink the type of leadership, strategies, and infrastructures they use to drive their most critical change efforts. The recommendations include proven best practices, approaches, and pragmatic tools.
Being the Change: The Change Leader?s Most Potent Strategy for Leading Transformation
When an organization undergoes transformation, its leaders?at all levels?are its most critical catalyst for the changes required. Transformational change demands deep personal change, affecting the leaders? mindsets and behavior. Most leaders pursue the knowledge and skills to lead the change, and inadvertently leave out the personal development that enables them to understand the nature of transformation, the power that their mindsets have over their success, and the requirement that they walk the talk they are asking of the organization. Leaders must become models of the transformation? ?being the change.? This presentation explores the requirements and predictable dynamics of addressing leaders? personal change as central to their capacity to successfully lead the transformations of their organizations in the 21st Century.
Women as Leaders of Change: Women Have What Organization?s Need to?Succeed?at Change
With change rampant in organizations, executives are scrambling to improve their track record in leading change successfully. What?s so often missing, especially in transformational change, are leaders skilled in a host of advanced human competencies?clear strategy, a flexible process roadmap, authentic relationships, emotional maturity, personal courage to model new ways of being, and a community of motivated supporters. Women are naturals at these competencies!
This presentation clarifies what leading transformational change requires and explores why project management and command and control approaches don?t suffice. It features the innate competencies women possess that make them naturally proficient at leading transformation. These natural inclinations of women are needed to plan for and produce results from change, in partnership with the action-oriented talents of men. Discover these competencies in yourself and learn how to apply them to successfully lead your organization through its change efforts.
