Karen Hough | May 07, 2014 | Video

Getting outside your normal working and thinking mode is critical to creating elegant, meaningful solutions for your organization. Learn how to frame innovation so that your team can experience a whole new paradigm for thinking, based on the skills of improvisation, which leads to more creative, flexible, and adaptive work. We not only examine creativity—we apply it to real situations so that the information is useful rather than theoretical. You'll learn how improvisers can be so creative in risky, stressful situations. We will examine how creative and innovative people and organizations interact, how they manage risk, and the most effective ways to implement creativity in a culture. You will engage in improvisational exercises, small-group discussions, and intense challenges.

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.
