That change is the only constant has been repeated ad infinitum and implanted into the minds of everyone in management from the boardrooms to the cafeteria over the years. Almost everyone seems to be aware of this, at least in theory. Unfortunately, when it comes to adapting and implementing change; most managers and other levels of staff seldom put this idiom into practice the way it should be. Most organizations, even very well-known ones, and managers, fall short for lack of direction. These rather baffling statistics from critical studies reveal the reason why change fails to bring about the desired result in most organizations:
- A 2105 study done by IBM showed that over five-sixths of employees have no focus on how to change, even as they face pressure constantly to change
- A shockingly high 90 percent of CEO’s lack the confidence that their organization is equipped with the agility to successfully foresee and handle the road ahead, as evidenced by a Bersin-Deloitte CEO Survey 2016 carried out in 2016.
No matter how hardnosed many executives are; in addition to lacking the vision to change, they are also convinced that somehow, the road ahead is a smoother and that it will offer more opportunities than threats. While one can marvel at their optimism; one wishes it were true for all organizations all the time.
Mindset is the all-important element
So, where do such organizations and managers go wrong? They lack one critical element: the mindset to change. This is at the core of all the unreasonable and faulty reasoning that leads them to poor outcomes brought about by the inability to change for the better.
The nuances of how to inculcate the mindset to change will be explored in detail at a highly valuable and entertaining webinar that is being organized by TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the areas of human resources. At this webinar, Laura Goodrich, an accomplished Senior Executive, Consultant, Thought Leader, entrepreneurial technology leader and global workforce change expert and Co-Founder of GWT Next; will be the speaker.

Credit is awarded based on the actual educational time spent in the program.
Getting the mindset right
Laura will drive home the point that while most managers put in place the tools and processes for bringing about change; none of these can succeed if they are not placed in the condition that fertilize them: the mindset for change. When all these processes, structures and systems are unaccompanied by this foundation; the entire exercise of bringing about change into the organization becomes rudderless and unfocused, creating the ideal condition for the best of intentions and efforts to fail.
At this webinar, Laura will help participants understand what is preventing them from inculcating this mindset and how to chalk out a focused path based on the organization’s needs and priorities. This will help organizations and managers look to the future with a clearer vision. She will disseminate her message in clear, compelling and sharp ways, but without causing panic or fear in the minds of the participants. At the end of this session, participants are sure to feel refreshed and positive, eager to embark on the changes that are imperative for their organizations.
At this session, which will be of extremely high value to executives who are at the forefront of bringing about the mindset needed for change, such as CEO’s, COO’s, VP of Human Resources, Chief Learning Officers, Directors, Project Managers, Operation Managers, Team Leaders and Staff Managers and Supervisors, Laura will cover the following areas:
- Learn about the inherent nature of change
- Learn what is getting in the way of positive change and innovation in your work
- Learn how the brain is wired and how to get it working for you and your team
- Learn how to create an intentional and disciplined focus on the outcomes that you do want.
