Change and Transition

It’s a common belief that people don’t like change. True. But research has shown that what people really don’t like are the transitions from one reality to another—from the old to the new. Transitions can be slow or they can be fast. They can come as a surprise and they can come over and over again. We offer several presentations to help you and your team understand change and transition. Contact us if you’d like to book a speaker.

One of the most important skills you can develop is foresight—the ability to anticipate the cascading impact of an event, action, or decision. This is particularly true in environments characterized by rapid change and transition. Even in more stable and predictable environments, foresight plays a pivotal role in functions such as marketing, Human Resources, strategy, and more. We offer several presentations that demonstrate what foresight looks like in real life situations, from business to government.
Collaboration and Mobilization
Often, we find ourselves accountable for producing results with people we didn’t hire and we can’t fire. Collaborating with and mobilizing others takes hard work and it always works better when you have a plan. We understand the process behind effective mobilization efforts and our presentations will teach you how to anticipate and avoid the landmines that commonly derail collective action.
Leadership isn’t restricted to certain positions or titles. It’s not tied to an age or to years of experience. We’ve developed a series of presentations that deconstruct leadership, casting it as an authentic performance intended to persuade others to commit their attention and their resources to the pursuit of a shared goal.

Here’s a short clip of Dr. Robinson talking about why change is so difficult at the ACMHA Summit in 2014.
