The Benefits of Successfully Navigating Change in an Ever-Changing World by Scott Lesnick

From new staff to new managers. From new and agile organizational direction to constant change. Now, we also must focus on health and safety concerns and this will not change anytime soon. Staff is surrounded with change and the effect it has on jobs and on their workplace satisfaction, retention and productivity. Employee engagement and talent support is essential. If those we work with can successfully navigate the intricacies we’ll continue to grow our productivity and have a distinct advantage in successfully completing projects!
As Project Managers, if we assist our team by leading through change, our projects will have a better chance of coming in on time and on budget.
Sometimes it’s organizational change- cultural transformation. Or, it can be the people side-how to cope. Fear and anxiety, new management new staff and new roles can be an opportunity for growth. Plus, an opportunity for additional learning and possible advancement too.
We understand that change is a constant and it’s our job as PM leaders to assist staff who are struggling, give them the tools and let them know they’re not alone. From innovation and technology to increase sales and a strong workplace culture. We’re in this together and change is constant.
This popular session is designed to show you how to best assist all staff, create a culture of openness and ideas and successful navigate change in your workplace.
• Demonstrate a greater ability to successfully lead through and navigate change
• Prepare a stronger vision to stay productive, grow as a leader and develop stronger more agile relationships
• Key factors that allow individuals to stress less and produce even during difficult times
• Improved change management skills, grow communication skills and a stronger more staff/team
• Learn to grow, mentor and engage even during times of significant change
