Nobody Likes Bad Change

Research has shown 8 out of 10 executives who launch major change initiatives are dissatisfied with the results delivered by their efforts. In larger organizations “resistance to change” and “lack of implementation know-how” are two of the top obstacles consistently identified as blocking or weakening success. The impact of these problems can be significant. At the least they cause excessive stress at work, and, at their worst, cause the loss of jobs and even business failure. The presentation below describes how to view “resistance to change” from a new, positive perspective. Tactics are then presented for using the fresh perspective as a problem solving tool capable of making the implementation of change easier, less stressful, and more successful.
For those interested in Lean management, the presentation, through stories and explanations, will develop a thorough understanding of the concept of "gaining social authority". In addition, tactics for applying the concepts are presented in a practical , easy to understand format.
