Behave Yourself: Using Behavior to Activate Change
Description: Change management has had a heavy industry focus on tools, templates, standards and methods. Although these are necessary, they are not enough in of themselves to drive change. This is evidenced by the continued, disappointing statistics on the rate of successful change.
Driving change involves the difficult task of trying to invoke and sustain human behavior impossible by the action of completing a template alone.
Isn’t it time we matured our practices to include a behavior based approach as part of our “application” to drive organizational change?
This session will energize participants through an engaging session that explores how to immediately employ practical behavior practices into their change management tool kit.
1. Assess behavior based skills for driving change
2. Understand how behavior gets rooted and sustained
3. Explore visible and measurable differences between a behavior based approach and a typical change management approach
4. Learn practical ways to include behavior in change execution
