Change practitioners are your organizational transformation efforts falling short? Are you feeling ill equipped to support your organization’s volume and rate of change? You are not alone! Perhaps it’s time to consider a different approach to driving change? There has been heavy industry focus on change management tools and templates, standards and methods which, although necessary, are not enough to drive change, which we have seen from the disappointing statistics on successful change. Driving change involves the difficult task of trying to invoke and sustain human behavior impossible by the action of completing a template alone. Join this interactive workshop in which we explore how to mature your change practices using a practical behavior based approach that accelerates change management dramatically improving your business outcomes and ROI.

This workshop is intended for anyone who needs a straightforward way to determine how to influence change in their organization. Both new and experienced practitioners alike will gain practical exercises and templates they can use to influence change at work.

Session Outline:
Would you be able to accomplish more at work, if only people would just do what you want them to do? You're not alone in this wishful thinking! Unfortunately, there's no magic formula that will make everyone do what you want.

Influence is not really about getting your way. It's about getting things done - with and through other people. It's about providing people with what they need to help them change.

So, if you're ready to make a bigger impact at work, attend this half-day workshop, where you’ll learn practical ways to boost your influence at work. You’ll apply five levers of influence to bring about change, and discover how to minimize resistance as well. You will leave with ideas you can implement immediately and practical templates to add to your change toolkit.
