Enabling Change as a Project Manager (Regardless of the change, the stakeholders, their appetite for change, or yours!)

Leadership

This is a Webex online meeting.  If you haven't participated in a WebEx meeting previously then you can test your computer here. The meeting link will be sent out to all registered attendees 1 day prior to the meeting and then again an hour prior to the meeting.  Please make sure that your PMI profile has your current email address as that will be where the invite is sent.

Typical Agenda:

  • 7:15 AM: Webex Open for Discussion and Networking
  • 7:30 AM: Welcome/introductions/announcements
  • 7:35 AM  Featured Presentation
  • 8:30 AM: Adjourn

Topic Overview:

Change appetites vary, and changes can be hard. But they don’t have to be. Equipped with a few simple concepts, PMs can help enable change in their organizations.

  • Defining the terms makes it change simpler.
  • A growth mindset helps with any change.
  • A people-positive attitude helps with any stakeholder.
  • Envisioning change as a journey helps set the stage for the messages we need when going through transition, and helps others hear what they need to hear, right when they need it most.

This engaging look at the processes many people go through around change and the messages that help them move forward will help you look at change a little differently, with the end goal of improving your own ability to help others through the transition process – regardless of the magnitude of the change or the change appetite of those facing it.

Objectives:

By attending this course, participants will:

  • Encounter common symptoms of change and transition as well as indicators of change appetite – and what to do about them.
  • Explore how your attitude and mindset can be leveraged to help the attitude and mindset of others.
  • Gain a simple, easy-to-replicate model that offers both strategies and tactics to help bring those around you through change successfully.
