Take Your Blindfolds Off: Reinvent in 2017 | Kate Sweetman | President | Sweetman Cragun
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Kate Sweetman. Change can only happen when both the individual and the company are ready, willing and able to change in the same direction at the same time. Too often, development efforts only address the needs of the individual OR the organization. How do you help individuals to feel a desire to change, and guide them in the right direction? How can you diagnose and eliminate the barriers to learning and change that affect us all? How does the organization identify its own systemic requirements, and fit the people into them in ways that truly inspire the levels of collaboration, cooperation, creativity and energy needed to succeed in 2017? This webinar, based on the award-winning book "Reinvention: Accelerating Results in the Age of Disruption" links these vital needs in ways that are practical, actionable and successful. In the webinar, Kate will quickly set the stage that the ability to lead others in times of change is THE competency of our time. It is especially of relevance in Saudi Arabia as there is so much opportunity for positive change in attitudes, beliefs, skills and behaviors around work. How can work be made more meaningful and, thus, more exciting? How can people shift their energy levels toward greater flexibility and action? In this webinar, participants will not only hear world class ideas around how to get the behaviors they want in their workforce: they will have a chance to evaluate their current status quo and start to think through what they can do to make the shifts they need.
What you learn:
- Connecting individual and organizational change.
- Common barriers to reinvention: individual and organizational and how to get around them.
- Powerful reinvention frameworks, models and tools.
- Assess yourself, your division and org readiness for reinvention.

The 21st Century Organization | Dr. Philip A. Foster | Principal Consultant | Maximum Change
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. Philip A. Foster. This webinar is based off of Dr. Foster's bestselling book The Open Organization. A New Era of Leadership and Organizational Development. Gower Publishing. ISBN: 9781472440112.
Change is all around us. It is part of our everyday life. As we exited the twentieth century we found a time of unprecedented change through the globalization of organizations and economies. This level of change impacts the way we understand the effects culture has on an organization's ability to achieve success. Organizational decision-making styles began to be influenced by generational and cultural attributes of the individuals within the organizational system. The advent of the Internet and other technologies began to link individuals across cultures; creating collaborations unheard of in centuries past. Through this reality, leaders are beginning to understand the impact a globalized economy brings to the doors of their organization. Economic, technological, political, religious and social pressures are moving us toward new changes at an unprecedented rate. The 21st century opened with volatility unlike anything we have experienced before. The century brings us to a new kind of organization increasingly comprised of individuals from differing cultural origins and ages. As the global economy arrives, leaders must now understand geography, language, customs, values, ethics, varying laws, and national psychologies. These skills, coupled with an understanding of technological changes will determine their level of success within the global marketplace. Leaders and their organizations must learn to move beyond their own worldview and open themselves to the complexities of the world that await them. These changes bear down on organizations to create a new kind of complexity. A new kind of organization - one that contains a distribute workforce - one in which efficiencies are no longer focused only on KPIs but also employee happiness. This webinar is designed to open up a new frontier of thinking which will leave the attendee asking the fundamental - yet pivotal question: WHAT IF?
What you learn:
- Global Pressures moving us toward change.
- What is changing.
- Elements of a 21st century organization.

Leading Change Needs to Change | Dr. David W. Jamieson | Professor & Department Chair | Organization Learning & Development, University of St Thomas
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. David W. Jamieson. Leading change in today's world is not the same as it was in the past. When the environment was more stable, organizations were less global, workforces less diverse and management more control-oriented, planning and executing change was easier, more linear and slower. However, now change occurs more continuously, with greater uncertainty and faster. This leads to needs to approach change less incrementally, more rapidly, more cyclically (with act, learn, adapt cycles) and with higher levels of engagement across stakeholders affectedfor commitment and sustainability.
Organizations and their leaders will need to develop change capability internally (in people and infrastructure), use relationships and influence to engage stakeholders and partner with them in changing, learn quicker adaptation as systems and conditions change.
Most of the change fundamentals we have used for decades are still true and useful, but must be utilized differently in a different context and more rapidly. Leaders are critical in how change gets envisioned, positioned and led. Some specific aspects of leadership are more central in this new world, including relationship development, presence, influence and reflective action.
What you learn:
- How leaders need to lead changes.
- The fundamentals of good change theory.
- How to design and lead change in today's world.
- Why so many changes have traditionally failed.

Why Change is So Hard | Dr. Nicole Lipkin | CEO | Equilibria Leadership Consulting
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. Nicole Lipkin. Adaptability is at the core of leadership and organizational excellence and success. However, at a literal level, human beings are designed to fight change at all costs. No wonder being adaptable is the most difficult part of being human and ultimately, the most difficult part of leadership and organizational life.
At the core of change is science: the science of the human mind. This webinar provides insight into the natural inner workings that inhibit our decision-making, judgment and flexibility when it comes to adaptability at the individual and organizational levels. With an understanding of the neuropsychology behind change resistance, leaders are better equipped to manage the individual and organizational change process.
What you learn:
- The basic neuropsychology behind our resistance to change.
- Psychological biases that tempt us to stay mired in the status quo.
- Compelling research supporting the change process.

How to Overcome Resistance to Change in Others and Yourself |Dr. Mark Goulston | Co-Founder | Heartfelt Leadership
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. Mark Goulston.
If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. - Wayne Dyer.
This disruptive webinar on overcoming resistance will forever change the way you view resistance to change in others and yourself.
It will reveal to you that resistance doesn't exist and when you realize it, you and others will spontaneously communicate, cooperate and collaborate.Here is a small example of what we mean.
How often have you been in a argument with another person (often a spouse or teenager) where you feel unfairly attacked?
And how often do you think there is a possibility that they might be perceiving you as saying to them, "I'm right and you're wrong" (which might explain why they are attacking you) when actually from your point of view what you are really meaning to say is: "I'm not wrong!"
If you were to now look at that conversation from outside it, might you conclude, "They're attacking each other" or perhaps, "They're each protecting themselves from feeling attacked?" In other words, "They're both actually on the defensive but are being perceived by each other as being on the offensive."
In this webinar you will learn to view the notion of "resistance and how it doesn't exist" through the lens of evolutionary psychology and you will never look at or approach conflict in the same way again.
What will you learn?
- Why others resist change?
- Why you resist change?
- How in fact resistance doesn't exist?
- To spontaneously cause people to lower their walls.
- To talk WITH instead of AT, OVER or even TO people and get through to anyone.
