Leading Change Today

ATD 2014 Session: W113
Patricia McLagan | May 07, 2014 | Video

Your work is all about change: seeing the need for it, helping organizations and people prepare for it, introducing it, and riding and harnessing its often turbulent waves. But what you plan, say, and do as a change leader depends a lot on the lenses through which you view change and your role. This session will draw on McLagan's 40 years of research and sitting in the fires of change with people at all levels in businesses and agencies globally, including for several decades in South Africa. It will focus on what needs to be in your mind and skill bag so you can be a positive force as you continue with your important change agent work.

Bring Your Strategy To Life: Innovations in Employee Engagement

ATD 2014: Session TU315
Kurt Hine | May 06, 2014 | Video

This highly participatory session will focus on innovative best practices for how senior leaders, managers, and the L&D function can collaborate to get employees aligned and energized during times of major change. The speakers will show how the principles of cognitive diversity, combined with a experiential-learning approach, helped employees at a major U.S. food company understand and embrace a new corporate direction. Using a case study approach, the speakers will share real-world lessons from their joint work with the company's CEO, L&D leaders, and extended management team. They will: Define and give examples of cognitive diversity—the different ways people see and experience organizational life, apply the latest neuroscience research to the challenge of promoting workforce engagement, share the innovative engagement model developed by Dialect to address the known differences in thinking styles and promote organizational 'sync' across departments, demonstrate why discovery learning has proved uniquely effective at translating a new strategy and creating meaning for employees, 'go under the hood' of the discovery learning developed for the company, including the incorporation of creative visuals, gaming elements, and small group discussion, describe the collaboration between the L&D team and the CEO in cascading the company's custom learning to the entire workforce, and discuss key takeaways for session attendees.

It is All in the Mind: Change the Way You Think About Change

ATD 2014 Session: SU110
Tenille Halliday | May 04, 2014 | Video

As organizations change, leaders are faced with competing priorities, assumptions, attitudes, and capability gaps. Change management strategy can often focus on implementing new processes and equipping people with the requisite skills. Management can often take responsibility for overcoming and out-guessing the resistance to change. The barriers to change are of course different for every individual, and can prevent new skills and knowledge really 'sticking.' How do we overcome this potential immunity to change? The answer lies first in the mind. For long term sustainable change, leaders must aim to create a culture that is resilient and eager to adapt. They must focus on cultivating people's desire to learn and grow. This high impact session will ignite a new way of thinking about managing change in your organization. The speakers will introduce you to compelling theory and research linking the cultivation of a growth mindset to the creation of a culture that is adaptive and thriving. The session will explore the concept of fixed and growth mindsets, deepen your understanding of single- and double-loop learning, and how to expand people's desire for change.

Measuring the Success of Organization Development

ATD 2014: Session SU304
Lizette Zuniga | May 04, 2014 | Video

The basis for adding value through an OD intervention rests on the rationale for its existence and the extent to which it relates to a specific business need. This fundamental concept requires thorough diagnostics, which are foundational to measuring the effectiveness of organization's development. This session is for those who want to align OD and change management interventions to what matters most. Exercises, examples, and tools serve as a foundation for building a successful OD practice. An organization culture change case study will demonstrate the application of this process.
