Because change is constant, organizations need to drive change through people rather than driving people through change. With the right communication and approaches, your employees can withstand drastic or even small organizational changes without a negative impact on business results. Learn about the need for and process of finding “change architects” to facilitate the organization’s movement through a change initiative, using “broadcasters” to communicate the change with stories and data, and having “coaches” to address the personal resistances of change. Accountability and ownership for change are diffused throughout the organization.

Take a moment to consider some of the top performers in your organization. Perhaps some of them report directly to you. As you think about these individuals and their future careers at your company, what next steps do you envision they will take? Will your best programmer someday become Chief Technical Officer? Does your best accountant have what it takes to become a CFO? We’ve often heard the adage, “Past behavior is the best indicator of future performance,” but this phrase can be confusing. Future performance is not the same thing as future potential.
Review the forces behind our new world of work, while challenging how you think about the future and tools you will need to prepare for what is on the horizon.
Change is ambiguous, and we find those who adapt the best to constant change are comfortable working with uncertainty – managing in shades of gray. Indeed, the hardest part of being a manager is handling the "gray areas” ...Read more

Opportunities for learning in the workplace have never been greater nor more accessible than they are today. The rapid development of virtual, mobile, on-demand, open, and customizable training solutions has revolutionized not only our traditional educational system, but also quickly advanced to its more utilitarian business counterpart—the corporate university.
