Overcoming resistance to change requires outstanding social intelligence, the strategic ability to evaluate and influence other people’s emotions and relationships. Resistance to change is an inherent part of human psychology, due to fears of uncertainty and loss of stability that come with any significant organization changes. To manage and lead organizational change requires social intelligence skills that help overcome these fears, including thoughtful empathy, cultivating valuable relationships, improving teamwork, managing conflicts, exhibiting executive presence, and guiding stakeholders to achieving organizational change objectives. This presentation offers case studies on effective use of social intelligence-based strategies and provides clear take-aways to help you manage change effectively.
The future is becoming more and more disrupted and ambiguous: the only thing we can be certain about is the need for change to achieve organizational objectives. Yet humans have a natural resistance to change, requiring anyone who wants to bring about organizational change effectively to influence organizational stakeholders to go against human nature. To do so requires strong social intelligence, the strategic ability to evaluate and influence other people’s emotions and relationships. This training will provide you with these skills, thus greatly improving your ability to manage and lead change.
