Who’s this for?





Did you know that over 70% of change initiatives in organizations fail to yield the results that were intended? A ton of preparation, time and effort is usually spent on the tactical aspects of a large change—whether it’d be a re-strucuting, or a complete pivot. But how much time do we spend preparing and thinking of the short and long term impact of this change from a human emotion perspective? One key reason why the intended results of a change fail is because we haven’t considered the many angles the human emotions come into play. 

In this workshop we will look at the emotional dynamics of change in an organization, and learn what to do to prepare for a possibly disruptive change. 

During this workshop, we will:

  • Become aware of the emotional side of change
  • Understand why change efforts typically fail
  • Learn the EQ Change Model and the Cycle of Resistance
  • Use the Six Seconds EQ Model to understand the emotional skills required
  • Integrate the key ideas by planning for an upcoming change 

After the workshop, you will have learned:

  • Tactics to integrate EQ when planning a change
