Making Change Work Audio Conference
1-Hour CareerTrack Audio Conference
From new management and corporate restructuring to updating processes and
improving workflow, change is inevitable in the workplace. The "status quo"
continues to disappear as organizations compete for market share and scramble
for new customers in an environment that's changing technologically by the
minute. Consequently, new ideas for organizational improvements are everywhere.
Is your company adept at taking these ideas and making change work, or are you
crumbling under the pressure?
You've seen it happen time and again. You or someone you work with comes up with
an excellent new idea to implement in your organization. It's logical, sensible,
and has the potential to make a strong, positive impact toward helping you reach
your organizational goals. Just when you think everyone is ready to move ahead,
the idea receives pushback. Some managers and supervisors choose to ignore it,
while others openly fight it. You're locked in a standstill, wondering why
progress has come to a complete halt.

Employees set in their own ways who refuse to cooperate, collaborate, or
Individuals who put their own personal desires ahead of supporting the change?
Coworkers who fear their jobs may be in jeopardy if they support controversial
Managers and supervisors who communicate (either verbally or nonverbally) their
reluctance to change, negatively swaying their direct reports?
Organizational paralysis due to a fear of how to properly enact change in a
manner that achieves positive results?
If these situations
sound familiar, you're not alone! Now, with the techniques and how-tos taught in
this information-packed program, you can develop the skills needed to become an
agent of change and really make change work for you, your employees, and your
organization. You'll begin to understand the effects change has on people, how
to communicate it in a way that gets even the biggest skeptics on board, and
exploit the positive opportunities that often accompany change. You'll discover
how to get rid of habits that are hampering success and develop a comprehensive
replacement strategy — built around best practices — that will make change work.
has the potential to deliver remarkable results — providing you know how to
orchestrate it properly.
This program isn't a pep talk; it provides you with a proven systematic approach
to continuous organizational improvement. You'll uncover strategies for
converting your hold-outs into partners for progress and watch productivity
soar. As a manager, supervisor, or team leader, it's imperative that you aid
your employees in taking ownership in change, become an ambassador for progress
that upper management expects, and successfully align your team, group, or
department with your organization's visions and goals.
If change is inevitable during these turbulent
times, shouldn't you and your organization be able to implement incremental
positive change that keeps you ahead of the pack? Guarantee your success by
