Individual resistance to change can be a significant stumbling block to progress. Whether a change is complex and far reaching – or a smaller more localized change – leaders need to be able to get their team members engaged in meaningful ways. Drawing on several psychological approaches, including motivational interviewing, this workshop offers a new lens through which leaders of change can view resistance. Participants will learn tools and strategies to allow them to coach their team members toward engagement and success.
