Theme: The Art of Helping People Change
Format: Two Hour Workshop
How do you encourage other people to change? As a leader, teacher or trainer, we are often the first to espouse needed change, but also likely to be frustrated by a lack of understanding and action. This session will illuminate the hidden human drivers of resistance and how to neutralize them in order to mobilize people.
Attendees will learn about proven, practical tools to influence change in individuals and across organizations. Participants will come to fully understand that to effectively influence others to change we must let ourselves be changed…and that one of the best ways to change ourselves is to truly focus on others’ needs, challenges, and objectives. By the end of this session, participants will have been introduced to tools that will help them change their own perspectives and then invite others to change in ways that reduce resistance and inspire commitment rather than compliance.
Each attendee will receive a copy of Arbinger’s book The Outward Mindset
New Workshop Format: one of our four formats for 2020, the workshop format is a two hour session mixing expert presentation with hands-on application. You will both learn new skills and practice using those skills in a workshop environment.
