Change Management Keynote Speakers

Why Most Change Efforts Fail and How to Avoid That Fate

“People change what they do less because they are given analysis that shifts their thinking than because they are shown a truth that influences their feelings.” – John Kotter  

IHHP represents change management keynote speakers with a unique take on how to get change efforts to succeed.  We believe that a great change management keynote speaker must provide new and practical insights on what is needed overcome the challenges that hold back the results of strategies that involve significant change.  Our change management keynote speeches do just that, explaining the brain science of how change impacts people’s emotions, creating fear that prevents them from embracing the change.  And our keynote speeches provide applicable tools to overcome these obstacles.

The usual approach to change management does not take into consideration the human brain and its neurological realitiesThe brain’s primary hardwired mission is ‘first, keep alive.’ When change is coming the brain senses personal danger and all too often its built-in responses are to resist and prevent change. This is the major reason why over 80% of change efforts fail.

To get your organization to successfully adapt to external disruption and the new world of work, requires managers and leaders to accept that all change is personal and that they need to start managing from this point of view so their people will step into uncertainty and take the risks required to achieve successful change efforts.

In this provocative keynote, your team will learn best practices from organizations who are successful in adapting to change and disruption by leveraging the operating system of the brain.

In this change management keynote speech, your team will walk away with: 

  • How to identify the traps leaders fall into as they attempt to manage the pressure of change. 
  • How to create an environment of risk-taking and learning to adapt to disruption. 
  • Concrete tools to help leaders manage their emotions, thoughts and conversations to lead more effectively in the face of change and uncertainty. 
  • How to help your organization take action and approach the pressure associated with change and disruption with more confidence and enthusiasm.
