Strategy Challenges of Culture and Change
Presented by Dina Readinger
Change. The emotional storm of the unforeseen future leaves most employees focusing on the myriad of misguided assumptions resulting in physical and emotional opt-outs. Times of mergers, divestitures, culture clashes and other leadership challenges often find participants in strategy meetings immediately jumping into solutions, often oblivious to solving the right problem to align performance to strategy. It is one of the most prevalent and pernicious maladies in organizations, leading to high costs, turnover, and lack of employee engagement.
How can the OD professional effectively coach under lack of engagement, poor moral and even constant turnover during challenging times? Is there a process for handling change that is effective for all stakeholders? Can companies develop high-performing resilient teams that also meet shareholder expectations?
Whether the field is healthcare, public service or manufacturing, the needs of teams do not change from industry to industry. Dina Readinger will share tips for getting the most out of your teams and leaders when Change and Culture variables challenge the most capable and experienced OD professionals. Participants attending this session will
- learn how to assist teams in solving the “right problem” the first time
- receive tips for managing team behavioral shifts
- be better prepared to identify traps that derail individuals and teams
