    We are living in unprecedented times.  How you show up as HR Leaders, how you influence, can keep your businesses viable instead of damaged, your employees engaged instead of blaming, and your customers loyal instead of dissatisfied.  When you focus on leading through both hearts and minds, your own included, you can influence your company’s leaders to help reduce the productivity drops that often occur as employees spend time in fear, worry, concern, and complaint.

    In this exciting session, you will:

    1. Learn how you influence during times of change with a quick self-assessment.
    2. Identify aspects of your influence that work or don’t.
    3. Chart where you are with your company’s senior leaders in their cycle of change and how to adjust your leadership to provide practices and tools that support them.
    4. Explore strategies for how to manage associates’ emotional reactions to change.
    5. Leave with leadership tools and practices you can use to develop yourself and your company’s leaders in engaging associates during times of change.

    To be sure, this promises to be a fun and info-packed session of interaction and connection!

    Change is a constant force in the life of an organization. Whether it’s sparked by changes in funding sources or staff and/or community needs, organizational leaders must understand what drives change, how it progresses and what actions and behaviors lead to successful change management.

    Fear can be a paralyzing factor during change or crisis.  Don’t let it stop you.  Learn how to recover and avoid getting stuck in resentment and resignation.  It starts with you, the HR Leader, engaging and influencing your company’s leaders.  Powerful leaders believe “embracing change is consciously choosing your future.”  Use our session to begin actively choosing yours!
