Leading Through Change and Disruption

Thursday, December 16, 2021

Workforce Services is offering a FREE business education series for Frederick County business owners, executives, HR specialists, and employees! All can benefit from this high-level, value-added professional training to streamline processes, build strategic plans and develop effective practices during the pandemic and beyond. The professional series will include an engaging and interactive three-hour session each month. These sessions will be taught by certified instructors and business professionals who will pass along relevant, meaningful content, and advice to make your business more successful. You do not have to attend each session in the series to participate - but space is limited, so sign up while you can!

Disruption in businesses and organizations is the norm and even more so recently with the current pandemic. Yet many leaders are not prepared to navigate the internal and external changes that challenge the status quo on a daily basis. Timely communication, understanding the complex emotions that accompany change, and rapid learning opportunities are among the key tools that leaders must bring to the table to help themselves, employees, customers, and stakeholders drive through change. In this interactive and practical seminar, attendees will:

  • Understand and apply the “change curve” to better understand the individual and organizational response to change

  • Understand and apply the organizational life cycle to gauge individual and organizational readiness for change

  • Engage in scenario planning to anticipate and identify emerging business and organizational disruptions

  • Practice the OODA Loop in periods of rapid change

  • Learn the Organizational Change Concerns Model to help employees communicate and adapt to change and disruption
