Leadership Live Resistance to Change

Leadership Live—Overcoming Resistance to Change


Overcoming Resistance to Change Workshop
Friday, May 26, 2017
8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
BEST Building, KU Edwards Campus, Overland Park

Instructor: Marilu Goodyear, Assistant Vice Chancellor, KU Edwards Campus, Professor, KU School of Public Affairs and Administration

Change is happening in your organization. Every day, new initiatives and projects are launched to improve performance, increase profits, and enhance your competitive advantage. Organizational change is a process in which an organization optimizes performance as it works toward its ideal state, as a reaction to an ever-changing environment, a response to a current crisis situation, or is triggered by a strong leader with a strong vision for the future.

You'll learn to:

  • Plan for change in a dynamic environment.
  • Convince others that your change idea is a good one.
  • Leverage your organizational strengths to implement a no-fail change process.
  • Approach change resisters and engage them in the process.
