About This Session:
An old Navy saying is, “When the elephants dance, the grass must pay.” Too often change is something that people on the frontlines must bear. What can we do as leaders to change this mindset? How can we effectively implement change that increases its chances of success? With so many organizations grappling with change, we examine why people too often resist change and how to overcome with the 11 Steps to Effective Change Leadership resulting in a smooth transition no matter the size of organizational change.
