How YOU Can Be the Positive Change in Your Workplace
May 19, 2016
Brianna, a director in a senior living facility, knows things need to change, but nothing ever seems to happen. Margaret, a director of an IT solutions department, is taking steps to lead her division through changes. What’s the difference? Many managers spend their working lives knowing that things need to change, but real leaders have the courage to take the first steps. Now that you’re ready to take the plunge, it’s time to break the news to your employees.
You’ll see a lot of different reactions from them, including:
Excitement. Some people love variety, and they want to shake up the status quo all the time.
Anger. Other employees think the way things used to be done is the only way things should be done.
Hesitation. In some cases, employees know that change needs to happen, but they’re worried about venturing into the unknown.
Duplicity. These employees cheer about change while you’re looking at them — and then spread poison behind your back.
Grief. To these people, the company looks unfamiliar and they feel as though they no longer belong.

For more than 20 years I have been supporting organizations in transforming mindsets, and leading successful change management. I believe the pathway to success is fostering great leadership skills. What we believe about people, how we interact, and how we communicate determines how engaged and productive each individual is in the organization.
I have dedicated my professional career to developing processes, tools, workshops and trainings that managers of all levels can implement to make their organization an effective, efficient, and enjoyable place to work.
