Instructor: Laura Goodrich
Do your leaders have a “Mindset for Change”, or are they tethered to what has worked in the past? Did you know that 90% of CEO’s fear their organizations do not have the agility to maneuver the road ahead, and that 87% of employees feel there is not enough focus on “how” to change? Everyone is saying we need to change, but few are saying “how” to change.
When it comes to change, most leaders and organizations focus on structures, processes, and systems. Few recognize that without an individual and collective “Mindset for Change and Innovation” their best efforts will fail. This session will show what is really getting in the way; how an intentional and clear focus on what you want rather than on what you are trying to avoid turns insight into actions and actions into breakthrough outcomes. Laura will explain how this focus can benefit you, why we unconsciously focus on negative thoughts, and how we can rewire our brains to focus on positive outcomes. As a result, we can steer toward opportunities and away from the threats that a world in transformation will bring.
This is not another positive "attitude" session. This is a session that delves into our natural instincts and focuses on what we fear and are trying to avoid. Once people understand this concept, their awareness of intentional and clear focus on what they do want becomes very powerful. Laura will demonstrate simple tools to help turn you and your team's focus around and provide stories of how organizations have implemented this successful mindset. Leaders will walk away with a clear method of how to create a positive future for themselves and their team.
Real change is not an event. It’s a process. In this session, you will learn:
- what is getting in the way and how to change it
- the neuroscience of change and understand why most change efforts do not stick.
- about leading and creating a collective “Mindset for Change” in your organization
