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 breathe, 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 kanjis – Crisis + Opportunity.
Join us to learn science- and experience-based ways that you as a Talent Management/HR/L&D professional can help yourself, your team, and your organization leverage CQ® to lead through the A.R.C. of change – emerging more Agile, Resilient, and Capable than before. Let’s come together in this time of uncertainty and emerge with actionable insights to equip us to:
Start with your self – cope with the stress of change and develop personal resilience.
Support your team – transition from isolation to engagement, pessimism to positivity, and angst to agility.
Set-up your organization – inspire a growth versus fixed collective mindset, position challenges as pop-up learning labs to build change skills for now and the future, and accelerate transformation towards an even more change-capable culture.
