Speaker: Dr. Susan Raines | Associate Director, School of Conflict Management, Kennesaw State University
Sometimes the biggest obstacle to positive culture or policy change within an organization is denial on the part of leaders who insist on believing, “We don’t have a problem”. Yet their buy-in, leadership and even their vision is critical to addressing the roots of organizational dysfunction.
This session provides specific strategies and concrete steps for HR leaders seeking to informally coach and “get through” to their leaders in order to bring needed changes.
In this session you will:
- Assess the obstacles to changing organizational culture and develop a concrete plan to overcome them
- Develop skills to negotiate with those in higher power positions
- Develop a plan to address long-standing challenges in your organizations
- Leadership & Navigation
- Relationship Management
