LEARN STRATEGIES TO DEAL WITH RESISTANCE
Participants of this employee development program begin by identifying the most challenging times they have had to manage resistance and then learn about:
- The nature of resistance
- Different levels of acknowledgment
- The power of asking the right questions.
By asking the right questions and listening actively, employees learn to understand different perspectives and build cohesive teams. Using the Naturally series colour metaphor, participants develop a powerful and memorable framework for understanding their team members and the sources of their resistance. This interactive approach to team building connects people and illustrates that resistance is an opportunity.
MANAGE RESISTANCE TO IMPROVE TEAM COHESION
Handle Resistance Naturally gives participants direct experience with new techniques for alleviating the stress, conflict and tension that arise in times of change. Using self-reflection and shared learning processes, participants learn how to manage resistance to change. Employees discover that resistance can be seen as a source of information and opportunity while they explore new modes of conversation that energize teams and improve interactions.
LEARN HOW TO OVERCOME RESISTANCE TO CHANGE
Handle Resistance Naturally is a forum to engage senior leaders in the behaviors required to successfully implement strategy and create results. This program interrupts the destructive pattern of allowing and engaging in reasons-based conversations.
After completing this workshop your team will be able to identify the reasons and symptoms of resistance that each leader handles most frequently. You’ll understand better where the issues are in your leaders, teams, and internal workflows. This helps us determine what future sessions would optimize work and change projects and teams.
OUTCOMES OF THE HANDLE RESISTANCE NATURALLY WORKSHOP
CRACK THE CODE TO SUCCESSFUL RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT
Your leaders will apply practical tools to end the ACTUAL resistance they get from their teammates and customers. Everyone learns together and from each other.
CREATE LEADERSHIP ALIGNMENT
We call it the All–for–One–and–One–Approach–for–All outcome. Your leaders talk about the importance of interrupting reasons-based conversations immediately because they spread. Be aware executives, you will also get your employee resistance handled as team leaders become more adept at focusing on the critical path to results!
LEADERSHIP JOB AID DEVELOPMENT
All reasons and resistance get handled effectively by acknowledging the person and immediately redirecting to a results-based conversation. During the workshop, teams identify each reason and resistance, then work through how to respond. The best solutions get captured and curated for the current leaders and any new leaders who join your team.
TROJAN HORSE EFFECT
While your leaders learn how to handle the resistance of others, they actually learn how to handle their own resistance to change. They naturally become more results-focused and find reasons-based conversations pointless.
