Leading the Transformation from Resistance to Commitment
Tuesday, June 6
9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Resistance is an opposition whether to flow or movement (physics), to significant change (organizational), or to that which is uncomfortable (personal). Many employees have engaged in resistant behavior in the workplace because of a perceived breach in their psychological contract. Both leaders and resistors can deal with these issues in a constructive and mutually beneficial way. Workshop participants will review the level of resistance encountered in their work to develop meaningful and proven techniques to transform resistance into commitment.
Many employees voluntarily separated from their employment between 2020 and 2022. Work demands and pressures that are not matched to employee's knowledge and abilities can cause stress, particularly when employees feel they have little support from supervisors and colleagues and little control over work processes. There is often confusion between pressure or challenge and stress, and sometimes this is used to excuse bad management practices.
This workshop is designed for anyone facing challenges in staffing, turnover, productivity, inflation, employee commitment and enthusiasm, leadership effectiveness, and more. The course provides a real-world grounding in everyday challenges and opportunities for those who have just started or plan to manage, engage, and motivate people. Recent changes in the workforce and working conditions mean that experienced managers can benefit from learning about leading practices and technologies. Senior managers commonly have one or more levels of management as direct reports, and can also benefit from new technologies and ways of promoting management talent.
