The Leader as Coach: Guiding Your Team in Dynamic Change Edit Title
Wed, Aug 05, 2015 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date
It's virtually impossible to fulfill your mission over the long haul without change. Key people come and go, the economy surges and lags, new ways to engage donors or members emerge seemingly every day, and the imperative to operate cost-effectively is ever-present. Envisioning, designing, and implementing successful change - the kind of change that positions organizations to achieve and sustain the necessary results - is critical. Change, in fact, is one of most studied phenomena in business, approached from an incredibly wide variety of disciplines and perspectives. Oft-cited statistics like "70% failure" aside, the fact that we continue to search for answers indicate that there are more losses than wins when it comes to change initiatives. Much of the focus is on leadership, but beyond buzzwords and inspirational quotes, there is little in the way of real guidance. In this webinar, Snowflake LLC suggests that real leadership isn't about exciting and inspiring, but about actively coaching throughout the entire change process, which in the first place requires that you know more about and pay more attention to your "followers" than to becoming the next charismatic management celebrity.

I learned that leadership is more than just inspiring your team, but also getting buy in from staff who may have their own agendas, determining steps to get things done, and holding people accountable.

This was a very helpful and informative webinar. I enjoyed the way the facilitator used the analogy of the party and went through examples of specific personalities to look out for when going through change management. I felt that overall the workshop gave me some useful knowledge and tips to use in my organization.

I appreciated the illustrated characters.

Great use of metaphors and examples to describe the process of change. I did not like that the chat box was private. I think that displaying participants with their names and organizations, and providing a space for open commentary, creates a more dynamic webinar.
