Blackboard with chalk writing: Psychology of Change

Navigating Resistance

Every project introduces some degree of change. For you, as the project manager, the secret is to acknowledge that change and address it—both proactively and reactively.

In this webinar, we will introduce a sampling of successful strategies for tackling change using basic psychology, proven tools, and real-life stories. The focus will be primarily on stakeholder and communication management, with considerations around risk and team makeup.

Ultimately, we strive to shift your view of resistance to your projects and strengthen your ability to successfully navigate project-driven organizational change.

Topics include:

  • All projects are not created equal
  • What causes resistance?
  • Working with those affected by the change
  • Who are your change agents?
  • Your communication plan "on steroids"
