Although many people try to avoid it, even fear it, change is inevitable. In the business world, stagnation can be lethal. If your organization is not moving forward, it is likely moving backwards and will be left in the dust. Understanding the different types of changes, the reasons for change, the natural human reactions, and most importantly, why and how we should adapt to change is vital to success. To ensure that all employees are supportive and embrace the changes that come along with progressive movement, management must be the leader with this reflected attitude. Both individual and corporate-wide change management are essential to ensure personal growth as well as your business's success. To produce positive results, it is recognizably important to soften attitudes, change behaviors, and then reinforce the commitment to recognize, drive, and embrace desired changes. This presentation will address all of these areas, including giving suggested action items that you can start right away to begin the path to becoming an agile Pivot Master.
