Your role as a change leader has always been dominated by your need to communicate. You communicate with your teams, stakeholders, and management team regularly. But are they getting the message?
We learned in science that change needs a catalyst, but what about in life? Many professionals in today’s ever-changing work environment feel stuck, complacent or even fearful about their professional growth. In order to get back on track it is necessary to reconnect with their passion and establish their “WHY”.
In today’s constantly changing workplace it takes more than knowledge and skill to succeed. Charles Darwin says that adaptability, not strength or intelligence, will determine one’s survival. Alana has seen firsthand just how important it is for professionals to balance their technical skills and operational knowledge with leadership and human behavior insight, in order to thrive during change.
Looking for ways to engage even your most difficult team members? Interacting with challenging individuals can often feel like dealing with an unruly child. Cohesive teams are highly productive, drive innovation, and successfully adapt to the changes they face, however just one uncooperative team member can disrupt this dynamic and the team’s overall success. Today’s leaders need a clear understanding of Emotional Intelligence, behavior styles and conflict resolution.
Cultural diversity isn’t just about color, but about recognizing different ideas, talents, and perspectives. In this program, Alana relies on her years as a corporate, non-profit, and independent business leader to explore how to appreciate and manage diversity.
