Session Five

11:30 am – 12:30 pm

Panel discussion: The human-side of change management

 

We have so much change happening in our organizations, and more on the way. We are better at designing good solutions to our change challenges than we are to getting people to adopt and succeed in them. People do not resist change; they resist change that is poorly led.They resist change that they perceive is thrust upon them, will lead to a bad outcome, or is poorly designed and will overwhelm their workload capacity. This panel discusses key strategies for minimizing negative impacts on stakeholders, project teams and the organization. We will discuss how to reduce resistance; how to engage stakeholders to invite their best thinking; the unique requirements of change communications; and the need to change mindsets, behaviors and culture, all of which are essential to achieving and sustaining the results we need from change. Lastly, we will discuss the critical influence of change leadership on supporting the human dynamics of change.
