Tackling resistance to change

Fothergill House

To deliver change successfully in your business you need to give the ‘people side’ of your project planning as much emphasis as the technology implementation. It’s not just about delivering on time, budget and specification; every individual will make their own personal transition and if you don’t support them in the right way then the change is destined to fail. As the old saying goes: “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink”. If you’re developing exciting technology but struggling to get buy-in; feeling frustrated that staff won’t adopt new ways of working; or failing to realise the value and benefits of your change, then you’re not alone. Join us for this talk and we’ll explore some of the reasons behind resistance to change and learn some tips and techniques to help prepare and support people so you can work together in a positive way. WHO Davina is a change manager and coach. She has 20 years experience working with a range of different businesses and at the start of 2017 set up her own consultancy, Change Ready (www.changeready.co.uk). She works with businesses to help plan and successfully deliver changes, for example new technology, process improvements, product launches and restructures. She’s a firm believer that people will make (or break) every change a business tries to implement and is passionate about delivering change in a positive and respectful way, working with leaders and staff to improve engagement and benefit realisation. Whilst she can’t promise to rewire your brain to enjoy change, she can help you understand why change is difficult and how to navigate your way through the challenges it brings. In her free time, she loves to learn new things, go trail running with her husband Simon (especially in the Peak District), visit new places and plan mini-adventures.
