Workshop: "Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas"

Track: Training / Time: Wednesday 09:00 - 12:00 / Location: Derkinderen Kamer

We attend conferences or read books and articles, discover new ideas we want to bring into our organizations — but we often struggle when trying to implement those changes. Unfortunately, the people introducing change are not always welcomed with open arms.

Linda Rising offers proven change management strategies to help you become a more successful agent of change in your organization. Learn how to plant effective seeds of change, and what forces in your organization drive or block change. In addition to using these approaches to change your organization, you can use them to become a more effective person — these strategies or patterns are useful in many different settings.

Come and discuss your organizational and personal change challenges. Linda shares lessons from her book, "Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas" and a forthcoming More Fearless Change. Learn how to overcome adversity to change and to celebrate your improvement successes along with your organization's new found practices.
