Change by Attraction

 

Hone your ability to catalyze change.

Everyone I know wishes something were different—managers, coaches, team leads, and team members. And that involves change, whether or not you have change management in your job description.

This course addresses some of the biggest frustrations I see in organizational change:

People may not want to change. We’ll explore why that is, and how you can turn resistance into a resource.

Nothing really changes, in spite of extensive (and expensive) training and coaching. You’ll learn how to “see” underlying structures and factors that hold the pattern in place.

One size fits none, and everyone wants an exception. It isn’t possible to anticipate (or accommodate) every context and every variation. You’ll learn to apply constraints that about bound variation, rather than enforce standardization.

You can’t do it alone. Systems influence behavior, but it takes humans to change systems. In this part, we’ll explore how to build a network of influencers and find support.

This course will provide practical insights, tools, and models for people who need to make changes—from small improvements to major transformations. While the course is written in the context of organizational change, many of the methods are applicable outside the organizational context. The course will be useful to managers, coaches, team leads and change management practitioners.

The course is available in three versions:

Self-Study

The course is divided into four sections, addressing each of the issues outlined above. Each section has an introductory video and three learning cycles, plus a reflection.

I designed the exercises to explore concepts and provide practice within the participant’s context. Resources include assigned book chapters, articles, and podcasts. You’ll receive access to a new section every week for four weeks.

You can finish the sections at your own pace. They’ll be available to you as long as the course is published.

Watch the video, read the assigned chapters and other materials, do the exercises–exploring your own context and the changes that are important in your organization.

(Participants are responsible for obtaining their own copy of 7 Rules, which is available in paperback, ebook, and audiobook.)

Public Cohort

Current cohort begins October 15, 2020.

Join a small group to share insights, experiences, and peer consulting.

As with the self-study, the course has four sections, addressing each of the issues outlined above. Each section has an introductory video and three learning cycles, plus a reflection.

The exercises to explore concepts and provide practice within the participant’s context. Resources include assigned book chapters, articles, and podcasts. You’ll receive access to a new section every week for four weeks.

Watch the video, read the assigned chapters and other materials, do the exercises–exploring your own context and the changes that are important in your organization.

Every week, you’ll meet with me and your fellow participants via live video.  We’ll have discussion, small group work, and potentially, additional exercises. In between you can interact with me and other participants via a private Slack team.

Private Cohort

Use this course to guide change within your own organziation.  For groups of 6 or more from the same organziation, I’ll will arrange a private cohort–open only to people from your company.

As with the public cohort, you’ll work through  four sections, addressing each of the issues outlined above. Each section has an introductory video and three learning cycles, plus a reflection.
