NOLA SHRM January Quarterly Meeting

Managing Change: The Only Thing We Can't Count On

Presented by:  Tracey McDade, MS

  • “The Only Constant in Life Is Change.”   Although this may sound like the perfect meme to describe the economic, health, political, lifestyle, workforce and other changes we have all shared in the last couple of years, it was actually uttered by the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus around 500 BC.  So, as an organizational leader, whether you’re dealing with a planned initiative or just your routine, unforeseen crisis, change is inevitable so what’s the big deal?  Aren’t we all dealing with the increased costs, decreased productivity, stress, confusion, and fatigue that comes with overwhelming instability?  

    Maybe, but we don’t have to…

    In fact, a 2002 McKinsey study revealed that companies with outstanding change management practices gained an average of 143% of the returns they initially expected.  During our interactive discussion, we will explore how you can use even the most basic change management tools to prepare for the hazards of change.

    At the end of the session, you will be prepared to:

  • Define change management.
  • Articulate the need for managing change
  • Distinguish Change Management truth from paralyzing assumptions
  • Recognize the role of leadership during a time of change
  • Pinpoint multiple change management strategies available to address change with your organization.
  • Speaker:  Tracey McDade (she/her)
