Leading & Managing Change

Leading & Managing Change is a unique and powerful workshop. It combines a nationally known speaker on change and resiliency, with a facilitated workshop to develop the change management skills. This team approach provides both inspiration and immediately usable skills.

The speaker is Trisha Meili, the woman known as “the Central Park Jogger”. She is a New York Times Bestselling author and a highly sought-after motivational speaker. She speaks to groups all over the country, including business professionals, on topics such as facing challenges and resiliency. The story Trisha tells is about her own path to recovery and the skills that got her through. Her story is memorable, pragmatic and inspiring.

As Trisha tells her story of recovery and perseverance, she will introduce skills that were important as she dealt with immense change; holding a vision of what can be, focusing on the present moment, working on what you can control, and being open to support. The skills are illuminated by examples of how each helped during her recovery from being in a coma to returning to work at Salomon Brothers.

Following Trisha’s talk, she and Jim Schwarz, a highly experienced workshop facilitator, work with the group in workshop format. They put each skill into a framework for managing and leading through change. Then managers work with peers on applying the change management skills to their roles.

In this way, each manager will leave with both an awareness of skills and the steps that they can take to apply these skills in their own situation. The managers can use the skills personally, as well as pass them on to their direct reports. The managers leave motivated and prepared to encourage their direct reports as they lead through change.

  • To provide change management skills that managers can use for themselves and their direct reports
