An ICL Interactive Workshop Wednesday, June 12, 2013. United Way of Greater Portland. 1 Canal Plaza. Portland. 9:00 am – 4:30 pm. Register securely online for $165. If you work for an organization that sends two or more people: $140 per person. Fee includes lunch and a participant manual. This engaging ICL workshop provides immediately useful concepts and tools for:
- Individuals who anticipate embarking on a difficult change;
- Leaders (formal or informal) who want to hone skills to work in complex, changing situations;
- Teams that want to debrief a recent change process or plan for a future change.
Participants will learn though collective discussion, small group work, team activities and individual application. Led by Laura Moorehead, ICL Director of Training, and Amey Leadley, Training and Development Consultant with KMA Human Resources Consulting, the workshop will explore:
What do we need to effectively orchestrate change? What can we learn when we view change as an incubator, a time of ambiguity and chaos, or a challenging crossing to something new? How do we serve others and the issues at stake, without losing ourselves?
Using the work of top change theorists (including Kegan, Senge, Bridges, Heifetz & Linskey, and Wheatley) this workshop offers concepts and approaches to leading complex change in organizations and across communities. We’ll dive into the leader’s work of effectively engaging others in the change process, bringing groups and organizations to a new beginning, and personally weathering the pressures and challenges with resiliency and focus. This is NOT a project management workshop. Rather, this interactive seminar explores how individuals can significantly move a group closer to their goals, recognizing that the process can be complicated.
