How to Successfully Transform Organizational Culture

Duration: 3 hours
Instructor Names: Linda Ackerman Anderson and Dean Anderson
Organization: Being First

Instructor Biographies:
Drs. Linda Ackerman Anderson and Dean Anderson are co-founders of Being First, Inc., a training and consulting firm specializing in leading conscious transformation in Fortune 1000 companies, government, and large non-profits.

Their passion is developing conscious change leaders from the inside out and giving them the tools to achieve breakthrough results.

Workshop Description:
Culture is the most under-attended factor when planning for major change, leading to many initiatives never attaining adoption or sustainment. Culture either supports the success of your initiative outcomes or inhibits them. Most traditional approaches to change do not understand the impact or importance of culture as it relates to leadership or the design of solutions. Most ignore integrating cultural imperatives in assessments or plans. Often, culture is a bolt-on strategy or given to change managers to fix after deployment. This doesn’t work. This session presents a proven process and the components and conditions required to successfully change culture, aligned with project outcomes. It presents how culture reflects leadership mindset and stage of development, implying that leadership development and modeling is an essential factor in generating breakthroughs in culture change. Come explore what it really takes to align leaders, make cultural requirements tangible and how to actually change it.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand the importance of addressing cultural imperatives from the beginning when planning for transformational change
2. Explore how culture directly reflects leadership mindset and stage of development, and what to do about it
3. Learn a proven process for integrating breakthrough culture change into major initiatives and how to support it over time
4. Expand your thinking, your role and your impact on culture change

Who Should Participate: This session is ideal for experienced change management practitioners and leaders involved in major transformational change that directly impact culture. Less experienced professionals committed to their learning will also find it valuable and insightful.

Duration: 3 hours

She helped start-up the ACMP-Midwest Chapter and was honored as its Change Management Consultant of the Year in 2015. She holds a doctorate in Organizational Psychology from the University of Michigan.

Workshop Description:
Methods to "manage change" are baseline competencies. Truly effective change agents LEAD change - this workshop's focus. Participants will enhance their own ability to lead successful and sustainable change, including "Change Intelligent" strategies to reframe resistance from enemy to ally, influence key stakeholders, engage sponsors, and facilitate collaborative change teams. The workshop is replete with interactive hands-on exercises, real-world case studies, and personalized assignments enabling immediate application to each participant's unique change challenges. Additionally, participants will experience the Change Intelligence/CQ Assessment themselves, and through exploring research results from the assessment's global database, they will obtain insights into opportunities and dynamics in leading change around the world. By building Change Intelligence, change leaders are able to overcome what looks like resistance, but is really either confusion over the goal, lack of connection to the goal, or lack of tactics and training to partner together to work toward the goal.

Learning Objectives:
1. Actionable awareness of one's own Change Intelligence, including how to leverage one's personal Change Leader strengths as well as how to shore-up one's blind spots with targeted developmental strategies.
2. Coaching to understand the sources of resistance to change, reframe resistance from enemy to ally and to flex one's approach in order to powerfully partner with and influence key stakeholders in new and winning ways, to enhance change leadership agility.
3. Tools to build the collective Change Intelligence of the teams and organizations participants support, through research- and practice-based strategies using CQ to launch change initiatives, turn-around struggling projects, and ensure ongoing sponsorship and engagement across hierarchical levels and functional groups.
4. Develop one's Change Intelligence to lead successful and sustainable change with greater competence and confidence, and less stress and frustration, for the benefit of our organizations, teams, and careers.

Who Should Participate:
This workshop is intended for experienced change management professionals, as well as professionals in other fields with experience in and accountability for leading organizational change.
