Change Is Good . . . You Go First!


The Five Keys for Overcoming Resistance to Change


Sky diving. Bungee jumping. Implementing change. They are all good ideas, but who wants to go first? When it comes to most employees, the usual answer is: “Not me!” How then, can your organization get better, compete and grow?


In today’s highly competitive and uncertain environment, implementing strategic change is vital. Organizations often have superbly crafted project plans to implement a change. And yet, 7 out of 10 change initiatives either fail or do not fully realize their intended results. This 1 hour seminar focuses on the five key reasons why change initiatives do not always yield the results sought by organizations and provides tools for identifying and overcoming the root causes of resistance to change that if not addressed, can lead to less than successful project outcomes.


In this webinar, change management consultant Dr. David Grau of Ascent Advisor, Inc. reveals the five keys for overcoming resistance to change. As a project manager, learn tools for diagnosing why a project team is stuck (and how to prevent that from happening) and what to do to get the project moving.


By the end of this webinar you will know how to:

 • Build common purpose around a shared vision

 • Focus the organization and project team on the most vital priorities for moving a project forward

 • Learn how resistance to change is demonstrated in a group and how to eliminate the root causes of resistance to change


Build momentum that leads to highly engaged project team members

Join us for an informative and engaging presentation from an expert in mastering change—Dr. David Grau. Bring up your questions and receive sound advice to lead change in your organization.
