"Overcoming resistance to change." You hear about it all the time, especially as changes continue to emerge in the transportation industry. Change often brings resistance. Resistance is a signal that people are concerned, that they're paying attention, and that adjustments might be needed. More than anything else, people support change when they respect and trust their leaders. To earn respect, trust and loyalty, you have to extend it. The leader goes first! Involve people. Don't try to "overcome" resistance. Embrace it. You'll earn even deeper respect, trust and loyalty with the people you serve...They'll get the job done-and more!

Attend this session and learn how to:

  • Engage your people in the process of change
  • Involve organic leaders at all levels. You'll find some your best leaders on the front lines!
  • Show them that you value their knowledge, experience, wisdom and input
  • Demonstrate your trust by sharing responsibility for implementation and for creative course adjustment through the process
  • Practice active compassion. Express genuine interest in how this change will affect their lives, job performance, personal fulfillment, and their relationships within the organization
  • Leave with actionable strategies and tactics you can put into place immediately.
