Change Management

Innovation and Change: It's all about leadership!

"Sam Palmisano, Chairman of IBM, says that 'events, threats and opportunities aren't just coming at us faster or with less predictability; they are converging and influencing each other to create entirely unique situations'. I couldn't agree more."

To navigate in this environment, we require new skills, multiple perspectives and an openness to entirely new ways of thinking. Leaders must own the change process and model the qualities that they expect from others. Take this quiz to see how you'll do:

  1. What’s ½ of 8? (Find at least eight correct answers.)
  2. What happens in your brain when you try something new?
  3. Identify four ways to test for change readiness in your organization?
  4. How many things can you do at once? What happens to your accuracy and speed when you multi-task?
  5. If trying new things enhances learning and energy, what happens when we get complacent or change resistant?
  6. Before you make a change what questions do you need to ask?

Explore the answers to these and other great questions that will help you navigate in this complex and unpredictable world.

Studies show that about 50% of us resist change — we're not wrong or difficult, just slow to adapt or maybe just exhausted. No wonder we want to throw our hands up and scream when someone comes up with yet another idea. Even if it's a good one. That's why we need great leadership in times of transformational change.

Brain Science Research is revolutionizing what we know about change. This body of research reveals the remarkable neuroplasticity of the brain and helps us better understand the relationship between the physiology, psychology and sociology of change. Our brains thrive when we keep them active and challenged, but they are wired to support the tried and true. It also helps us understand why our Performance Management techniques/tools don't give the results that we need.
