Introduction of Participants
  7. 7. Opening Change Activity Opening Activity Introduce Activity: Once everyone is relocated, the following questions are discussed: •What were your reactions to being required to change seats? (e.g., positive, since I didn’t like that seat anyway, negative because I had to move from my comfort zone or neutral, didn’t really care) •How did the arbitrary order make you feel? (angry, relieved, confused, etc.)
  8. 8. Activity Discussion Questions • How did you respond? (moved as close as possible to my current seat, resistant to moving, etc.) • What would have made the demand easier to comply with? (If told a reason for the change, If allowed to have input, If asked rather than ordered)
  9. 9. Intro to Change “Self-assessment can motivate change. Fear of self-knowledge can prevent it.” —Walter Turnow
  10. 10. Overview of Change It has never been more true that today and tomorrow will be a time of constant and rapid change. Managers and leaders need the skills to help their people and organizations navigate the rocky and chaotic shoals of change. Without the proper tools and understanding of how to lead change, you will be unable to prevent your organizations from being destroyed on the sharp edges of ambiguity and chaos.
  11. 11. Personal Reactions to Change -Group Exercise Individuals will brainstorm reactions to the question: What words do you first think of when you hear the word “Change.”
  12. 12. Virtues vs. Vices - Discussion We will look at such positive aspects of change as: innovation, risk-taking, creativity, diversity, openness to new ideas, strategic thinking and risk taking. We will explore the nature of entrepreneurism. The negative side of change will also be explored as we examine the harmful effects that change can have on people and their workplace.
  13. 13. The Pace of Change Discrete Steps: •Specific actions that address a particular problem or need. •Relatively small and short-term with an end date. Continual Steps: •Do not carve out dramatic, widely spaced steps, but rather continual small shuffles. •There is no end date, but committed to learning forever.
  14. 14. Pace of Change, Cont. Technological Changes •Number of years until mass use: •Electricity -46 •Telephone -35 •Television -26 •Personal Computer -16 •Mobile Phone -13 •The Web -7
  15. 15. Labor Changes · During the early 1900’s, 85% of our workers were in agriculture. Now agriculture involves less than 3% of the workforce · In 1950, 73% of U.S. employees worked in production or manufacturing. Now less than 15% do · The Department of Labor estimates that by the year 2000 at least 44% of all workers will be in data services – for example, gathering, processing, retrieving, or analyzing information
  16. 16. Organizational Response to Change Time needed for Different Personalities to change: •Innovators and Early Adaptors – Short time to change and join the organization. •Intellectuals – need more time to process. Will eventually come along. •Late adaptors – Need more time to change. •Traditionalists/Diehards – Will hold out to the end until they have to change.
  17. 17. Positional Response to Change Top Management •Isolated at the top and may underestimate the impact of change. •Avoid communication in fear they do not have the answers. •Depend on Middle-Managers to make change happen.
  18. 18. PRC, Cont. Middle Management •Squeeze between Top Management and Workers. •Feel pressure to make change happen. •Often feel deserted, blamed or misunderstood when there is resistance to change.
  19. 19. PRC, Cont. Workers •Often feel attacked that they are not doing a good job when changes are made. •Many respond with anger, frustration, and confusion. •Become afraid to take risks or be innovative.
  20. 20. Principles of Managing Change • Major change is an untidy process • Vision for changes comes from different parts of an organization • Changes must be championed • Leaders must put tension into the organization • Beware: change is costly • The location of power is key • Change in one area affects other areas • Stress must be managed • Avoid “death by 1000 cuts” • Indoctrinate and train all those involved • Leaders must retain trust • Opinion leaders need to be identified and led toward a deep consensus about ends and means • Positive change must be rewarded • Leaders must find ways to listen • Heroes have to found and praised
  21. 21. The Change Process
  22. 22. Reasons for Change Failure · Allowing too much complacency · Failing to create a sufficiently powerful guiding coalition · Underestimating the power of vision · Under-communicating the vision by a factor of 10 · Permitting obstacles to block the new vision · Failing to create short-term wins · Declaring victory too soon · Neglecting to anchor changes firmly in the corporate culture
  23. 23. Consequences of these Reasons · New strategies aren’t implemented well · Acquisitions don’t achieve expected synergies · Reengineering takes too long and costs too much · Downsizing doesn’t get costs under control · Quality programs don’t deliver hoped-for results
  24. 24. Personal Change Experience Recall an experience in your life when you went through a personal change. This may be a major or minor life or career change, but should be something you are willing to share with others. Make a few notes about the change.
  25. 25. What we call the beginning is often the end And to make and end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. -T. S. Eliot “Little Gidding,” from Four Quartets

Be a careful listener. Avoid rumors. Address problems when they come up. • Take care of yourself. Spend time with friends and family doing the things you enjoy. Don’t let it take over your life. • Try to focus on the things you can control.
