How to Successfully Manage Change for Leaders, Teams & Organizations

Are you or your team facing a change or professional transition? Listen to Dr. Michael Watkins share his latest research findings on the challenges and solutions of professional transitions–for leaders, teams, and entire organizations. When leaders take new roles, they need to climb steep learning curves, define direction, build their team, and get early wins as rapidly as possible. New leaders often also need to assess, reshape, reorganize, and accelerate the teams they inherited. Major organizational changes, such as restructuring, accelerated growth, and post-acquisition integration, involve many leaders taking new roles and many newly-formed teams in need of connection, alignment, and acceleration.

The Flip: How to Rethink Networking

Networking can be intimidating. It is not always easy, however, it can be beneficial if you change your perspective and "flip" your view of the situation. This requires flipping your perception of yourself, your jobs, and most importantly, your relationships. Rather than putting yourself under the often-misleading pressure to expand your networks with new contacts, consider mining already established relationships. "The flip" means redefining who and what your network is and does--for you and them--and is a different way of approaching networking.

Leading Diversity: What Top Managers Need to Know

Workforce diversity is a reality. If you are not addressing the challenges of a diverse workforce today, then demographic change, globalization, the purchasing power and demands of diversity markets, as well as the advantages of a diverse workforce mean that you will be confronting those challenges tomorrow. Yet, progress toward creating competitive advantage through diverse workforces has been interminably slow as many employees fear and resist diversity. Bias demonstrably permeates talent decisions, and employees and managers find it difficult to follow leaders who don't demonstrate a clear commitment to diversity.
