How Can I Identify and Overcome Obstacles to Change?
This program shows you how to identify obstacles to change and then remove them, identify information gaps and eliminate them, and identify unsupportive peers and enlighten them both before and during your change process.
Barrier-free change: It’s possible. Here’s how.
If change were easy, we wouldn’t worry about it. We certainly wouldn’t need to talk about it so much. And we wouldn’t be afraid of it.
Yet change isn’t hard because it is inherently difficult or complex. Change is a challenge because we don’t always go about it the right way, because we don’t plan appropriately, or because we don’t recognize what might derail our efforts once we get going.
When we do it the right way, change is simply a process—not a problem.
Part of that process is looking for barriers that are bound to get in your way and figuring out what to do about them.
You’ll learn how to do exactly that in How Can I Identify and Overcome Obstacles to Change?, a Magna 20-Minute Mentor with Lynn Gillette, Ph.D.
Gillette will present several examples of real improvements and true transformations realized using his methodologies. Drawing upon decades of experience and scholarly research, he will change the way you see change and prepare you for success on your campus.
