On October 19, Erich Buhler is presenting a talk about enterprise agility and accelerated change at the DC Scrum User Group (DCSUG).
Chances are nobody told you that leaders and consultants need tools to increase agility—not just in the IT department but across the entire company.
Nobody probably told you either that adults have to deal with people who hold different values and mind-sets, all of whom need to feel comfortable in the face of accelerated change.
And definitely nobody mentioned that human beings are not physiologically prepared for constant alterations in processes, roles, and ways of working.
Unfortunately, if members of a company cannot accept new situations and realities (mental agility), along with acceptable levels of personal stress, they will struggle to adapt to new situations (outcomes agility).
How do you help people from all areas of the company to be flexible enough to feel comfortable with constant change? How do you lower their resistance to new situations and enable them to be open to new ideas, with positive and proactive attitudes toward learning?
In the first part of this groundbreaking session, acclaimed Leading Exponential Change author Erich R. Bühler helps you understand what employees feel when exposed to situations that challenge their values and capacity for change.
In the second part of the session, Bühler explores neuroscience and organizational psychology to help you understand resistance to change and teach you how to make people comfortable when dealing with constant change.
As Bühler shares his hard-earned experience in the realm of enterprise change, you will increase your understanding of enterprise agility, recognize its relationship to mental agility, learn about change plans, and discover models that will help you accelerate the adoption of new ideas in your company.
