Herding Cats: Change Management for Nonprofits
Projects are judged by the impact they have on the organization and for the majority of projects, that impact is going to be hugely dependent on behavioral changes of people. And getting people to change is hard. In fact, resistance to change is often cited by leaders as the biggest obstacle to making organizational improvements.
Why is change so hard? And more importantly, as project leaders, what can we do to make it easier?
This webinar looks at how differing perspectives can challenge our efforts to effect change and what we can do to put ourselves, our projects, and our organizations in the best position for success.
Through this webinar, participants learn:
- Different obstacles to both organizational and individual change
- Why the notion “people hate change” is false
- Specific strategies and tactics for successfully managing change
- What the hardest thing is about organizational change
This is a recording of a live webinar from April 25, 2019.
