Overview: Drucker (1992) suggested there is no greater indicator of organizational survival than its ability to adapt. Researchers draw a direct correlation between organizational sustainability and the ability of the organization to navigate successfully through change. They suggest the most significant factor, identified with the successful implementation of change, is leadership (Appelbaum, Burke, Taylor & Vasquez, 2008). This session describes three critical inhibitors to successful implementation of a significant change within an organization: conflict, indifference, and agreement. It describes the potential impact from these factors and suggests methods for counteracting their negative influence within an organization.
Learning Objectives: At the close of this webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Define the three most prevalent inhibitors to the successful implementation of change within an organization: conflict, indifference, and agreement.
2. Describe how these inhibitors work within the fabric of the organization to stifle creativity, minimize productivity, and undermine employee productivity and engagement.
3. Identify leadership behaviors, as well as, organizational and environmental considerations for blocking the influence of these inhibitors and successfully mastering the change process.
