Projects are hard enough when the focus is on getting the technical result produced, on time, on budget and to specification. When we add in the complication of getting that used, however, the challenge becomes much more significant. Organizational change requires the evolution of structures, roles, responsibilities. processes and - above all - behaviours. It is all about getting people to work in new and different ways, and to embrace why they need to make this change.
As project managers we often have projects handed to us. We are often not involved in defining the compelling reason to make the change or do the project. Our involvement often begins with a: “Hey Sue, would you take this one on?” And off we go to plan and deliver the project, sometimes in a bit of a vacuum that can bite us along the way.
Change Management is viewed more and more as critical to project and organizational success. In this Change HEADWAY webinar, we will be examining the change management process from a project manager's perspective to understand how change management can impact all aspects of your project.
As our gut-wrenching experience with COVID-19 demonstrates and neuroscience validates, unexpected, unwanted, and undeserved change can plunge us into fear/threat mode, causing the good stuff that feeds our brain (oxygen, glucose) to rush past our necks so we can fight/flight/flee, robbing us of the cognitive capacity to think clearly and creatively. During the stress of change, when our IQ inevitably goes down, building our CQ® (Change Intelligence®), is like putting our own oxygen mask on first. We remember to breath, separate our knee-jerk, fear-based reaction from a more mindful response, and remember that we have options – and the more options we have, the more power we have. The Chinese symbol for Change consists of two characters – Crisis + Opportunity. Join us to learn science- and experience-based ways that you can help yourself, your team, and the projects you manage leverage CQ® to lead through the A.R.C.s of change – regaining Autonomy, Relationship, and Certainty and emerging more Agile, Resilient, and Capable than before.
If only CHANGE were easy. We lead projects and initiatives every day and the odds that they will be successful are not in our favor. It is like herding cats. Evidence shows that incorporating Emotional Intelligence makes it easier to lead people down a different path than they are currently on.
