Rapid and relentless change is now the norm in today’s global business environment. Markets shift overnight, teams must collaborate across geographies, time zones, cultures and the future is consistently uncertain. Business is distributed globally and company cultures are struggling to keep up, much less capitalize on our ever-changing world.
What does this mean? It means leaders driving transformation or change initiatives must adapt how they inspire and motivate performance. This starts with understanding the human brain. Our brains are wired to seek reward and avoid pain, and change is associated with fear of the unknown. And what does fear do to our brains? It shuts down the areas of the brain responsible for planning, innovation, and emotional engagement.
This means if your high potential employees and developing leaders enter periods of change, fear may takeover and undermine their performance. How can leaders help their team members shift from stress and fear to trust and enthusiasm in change scenarios?
In this dynamic and highly interactive keynote, we’ll explore how humans react to change and how we can powerfully shift how people experience it, so they feel excitement instead of fear.
You’ll learn how to apply simple and highly effective techniques to help your team feel deep levels of safety, belonging and mattering, and get them out of fear and into to the parts of the brain which yield greater innovation, social connection, vision, emotional engagement, and open communication.
As a result of this training leaders will be able to:
- Shift groups to focus on outcomes versus problems
- Teach your leaders to reframe, make new meaning, and anchor powerful positive states
- Spark innovation and teamwork in the workplace—and keep it burning
- Empower your people to embrace change as a new opportunity for growth
- Add humor and humanity to the change process, enabling empathy, compassion, empowerment and true
collaboration and teamwork
