Culture, Change & Leadership - 3-day workshopDo you need organizational change to succeed?Whether you’re an executive, a team leader, a HR manager or an external consultant, I guess you do. Organizations are changing in this fast-paced era, responding to digitalization, globalization and anticipating competition, innovations, disruptive technology developments and a workforce of highly-educated professionals who want to develop themselves, be challenged and engaged to achieve an inspiring purpose.The old, industrial, command-and-control times are gone. And so are the old-fashioned top-down change paradigms of unfreeze-refreeze based on control, experts, planning and paperwork. Many organizational programs fail because they don’t take the culture into account as in “the way we do things around here”. The top might have decided that the others (the employees) must change. Many change programs fail because they are too conceptual and organization-wide.Welcome to the 21st Century! Here’s a better approach of guiding change while preparing your organization to stay future proof.The Change Circles approachBased on the book “Organizational Culture Change: Unleash your Organization’s Potential in Circles of 10”, author, consultant and trainer Marcella Bremer will guide you through the “Change Circles of 10”-approach of successful change. This approach:includes everyone in Change Circles, engages and empowers people toco-create the change that will work for them. You learn to build trust, dialogue and engagement, you focus on specific behaviors, on what is working well and on who does it and how to do it.You guide change and develop your co-workers and your organization into a great place to work.What, How and WhoMarcella Bremer uses the validated Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI - developed by Cameron & Quinn) to start the dialogue of WHAT needs to change. Next, you engage, energize and empower people to find the HOW of successful change in small teams; the change circles. This requires an advanced level of change leadership: you are a crucial WHO, who guides change by building trust, practicing dialogue, enhancing awareness and developing people with respect. Learn to be the change you want to see in the team... because leadership shapes culture and change!Focus from Values to BehaviorsChange only happens when people change behaviors. Coworkers copy, coach and correct each other in their teams. To change behaviors and thus outcomes, we need to work with people and their interactions in groups (copy, coach and correct) while we try to leverage the change by engaging “positive energizers”.Yes, you can guide change, too!This international, English-spoken workshop is a great opportunity to learn to apply the validated Competing Values Framework and the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrumentlearn to guide effective Change Circles and engage leaders and employeesmeet other consultants, Organization Development practitioners, leaders and HR people like yourselfexchange experiences and learn from different cultures and cases practice your people skills and change leadershipadd to your vocational learning (24 credits toward GPHR, SPHR or PHR recertification) How will your change succeed? Lead!But will this approach work? Some say that culture can’t be changed - because people don’t really change. Here’s the thing: we can use the “stickiness” of habits and culture to our advantage... People like to belong to a group and do what others do. That’s why we engage people in small change circles. This differs from large-scale organizational change where people in the back may hide objections and fake commitment. In Change Circles people have a better chance to change because they feel safe and supported and they like to belong to the team with good leadership. Whatever you believe about organizational change, culture and leadership - wouldn’t you be happy to achieve successful organizational and personal development? I guess you do.
