Virtual Session: Handling Resistance – April 23
March 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Within the organization, and particularly as a leader, you are bound to face resistance in many forms over the course of your career — team members who are resistant to take on a new project or assignment; senior leaders who are resistant to give you more budget dollars for new resources; customers who are resistant to take your suggestions for
improvements to a design. And that’s only the beginning…
Although resistance may have a negative connotation, it can actually have a positive result. It can lead you to think through ideas more fully, take different perspectives and look at impacts you may not have fully considered, and ultimately build stronger relationships by handling it effectively.
By the end of this session, you’ll be able to:
- Identify signs of resistance.
- Identify the most common sources of resistance.
- Articulate the potential reactions to resistance and their impact.
- Leverage the Resistance Roundabout to handle situations strategically and collaboratively.
