In 1992, I started the Center for Inner Quality based on a wholistic model of personal leadership which helped my customers create internal climates for success so that they were able to adapt and manage work and life changes in resilient ways and not get caught in the undertow.
After conducting hundreds of workshops on change and listening to the challenges and solutions of participants, I created “The Waves of Change”, a model which has successfully helped leaders and employees gain perspective on what is happening to them, and the resistances they are experiencing.
During interactive training sessions, participants create specific steps they can take to ride those waves, compare and combine them with previous participants’ solutions and apply this knowledge to navigate the five key change categories that organizations commonly face during transitions. The goal is to proactively and consciously choose actions in a strategic way rather than emotionally react and have their efforts and energy get soaked by the churning waves.
Below are programs which have been created to meet our customer’s challenges.
LEADING CHANGE – VISION, VALUES AND VELOCITY
Every time we ask any employees to change a form, learn a new computer system or change a behavior, we often meet resistance, low productivity, low morale, challenging attitudes and absenteeism. Leverage the dynamics of change and transform it to advantage through proactive strategies and tools aimed at involvement and productivity.
Learning session or series can be designed from a leader and/or staff perspective to fit your needs.
KEEPING UP AND MOVING THROUGH CHANGE
We feel the “burn’ in stretching our resiliency muscles to match the pace of rapid shift change, rearranged hours, increased popularity and schedule changes. Leaders and staff ease the burn as they gain immediately useful tools in the 12 Step Resiliency Strategies to Keep Up and Move Through.
