Supporting Change Management

June 5, 2024 — 2:30–3:45 p.m.

“People don’t resist change, they resist being changed.” – Peter Senge, MIT Sloan School of Management

Why do your team members say one thing and then do (or not do) another? Leading change takes courage and commitment to persist in the face of naysayers, resistors, and avoiders. We must be proactive yet act quickly to manage the anxiety and discomfort of others to build agreement and gain buy-in to the change.

In this fun and interactive session, we’ll examine several key individual character and readiness factors to determine productive ways to support change management in our work team. Participants should gain an understanding of factors affecting our motivation to change, our role in supporting change, and strategies for positively engaging people into the change.

Learning Objectives

After completing this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss factors affecting individual motivation to change
  • Recognize the concepts of change management
  • Identify the role of a change agent
  • Describe tips and tools to manage people through change
