We're looking forward to hearing your thoughts about the webinar, comments on the book and questions for the author - Gina Abudi

From Amazon:
In today's increasingly competitive global marketplace, organizations that do not regularly undertake change initiatives will find it difficult, if not impossible, to continue to be successful long term. This guide explains how to develop a continuous improvement culture of change that will be perceived by employees as a valuable opportunity instead of something negative to worry about and resist. It outlines a strategic project management approach for ensuring successful implementation and desired results, and includes mini case studies, tips, and practical examples.

The book: ISBN-13: 978-1604271331 ISBN-10: 1604271337

In response to your question, one potential challenge will be to engage others in change by focusing more on the emotional side rather than the rational side when discussing change. Another challenge will be to develop a supportive environment that both welcomes and embraces change.

That can be a challenge, Ezara. It is not always easy to focus on the emotional side.Sometimes it is not comfortable for people or it may be that it is difficult to find an emotional connection. Often the logical comes through easily. If we don't understand much about the change ourselves, we need to learn more to even begin to craft an "emotional" message. And your second challenge is another good one! If we are working in an environment that does not welcome and embrace change - we need to find a way to welcome change in our own area of control. For example, if I lead a team, I may be able to structure an environment for the group that welcomes and embraces change even if the organization as a whole does not. Thanks for responding to me!
