Change is necessary to remain competitive and successful.  Did you know that the number one reason that organizations are ineffective when a change occurs is due to employee resistance­­­?  Why are employees resistant to change?  Often it is due to poor communication about the benefits, feelings of a change being imposed, fear of the unknown and they are comfortable with their current situation.

Whether your organization is going through a big change like new management or acquisitions or smaller changes in strategy and processes, Making Change Irresistible will help you understand the change process, the emotions involved, manage your own reactions to change as well as others and develop a better way of communicating benefits to transition.

Making Change Irresistible incorporates thoughts and solutions related to change from a variety of sources including Dr. Ken Hultman’s influential book Making Change Irresistible, Dr. William Marsten’s work on behaviors, Daniel Goleman’s work on emotional intelligence, and many other prominent experts.

You first explore the dynamics of change, then move to handle resistance and conflict, followed by an overview of ways to analyze perceptions and handle people (including you) caught in a change, and finish with several case studies for application and reinforcement of the learning.
