Making a Switch: Breaking through Barriers to Change

Join this online session with Becky Querido to explore ways to switch your thinking and actions to break through the barriers to change.

Constant change has become rampant in our workplaces. Even before the pandemic changed the way we work forever, workplaces had been struggling with change fatigue and burnout due to rapid technological change, increased competition, and shifting customer expectations, to name a few. Meanwhile, our personal lives have offered no safe haven from change with uncertainty looming in every choice made about our home, communities, family and personal wellbeing. Our world is rapidly changing, and there’s no signs of it slowing down, so how can we equip ourselves for this new norm of constant change?

To navigate the constant change around you, you need to start thinking and acting differently. You need to make a switch.

Based on the book ‘Switch’ by Chip and Dan Heath, in this interactive session you’ll learn why we find change so hard. We will explore some of the neurological reasons why you find yourself fatigued at the end of a workday, frustrated when your colleagues resist a rational positive change, or ashamed when you abandon that new exercise program only weeks into it. We will then reflect on ways that you can start to switch your thinking and actions to break through the barriers to change and ways in which you can apply these lessons to your change projects.
