Become a Change Champion: How to Support Positive & Productive Change

Nothing is constant—except for change. It’s an inevitable part of modern work life. Even under the best of circumstances, change is a disruptive force and, for many professionals, it’s a trigger for stress, fear and anxiety. If not carefully managed, it can destroy morale, decrease productivity, and wreak havoc on the organization. As an EA, you are in a unique position to be a champion for change—to not only support others as they adapt to it, but to also advocate for changes that are needed. This session will show you how to embrace the spirit of change and become an informal change management leader in your organization. In this session, you will learn:

 

  • Why humans are biologically hardwired to resist change—and how to effectively manage that natural instinct in yourself
  • The 4 stages of transition, how to determine which one your leadership is in and how to provide the right support for each
  • How to identify opportunities for positive and productive change—and how to persuasively present your ideas and gain buy-in   
  • How to help your executives manage change more effectively by leveraging proven tools
