Understanding, Managing & Overcoming Resistance to Change

presented by Salima Hemani

For many organizations that aim to transform, internal resistance to change is their biggest roadblock. The longer the change remains in elevated states of resistance, the greater the impact on productivity and operations, and greater the risk of general resentment, low employee motivation and even loss of valued talent. Salima Hemani, President SZH Consulting, will lead this interactive session, driving critical conversation around how to effectively recognize and address various forms of overt and covert resistance. We’ll introduce new and proven techniques, based in neuroscience and organizational effectiveness methodologies,  to help change leaders successfully plan, prepare and manage the resistance and build change savvy organizations.
