Latest Book: Corporate Learning Strategies (2006)

The Crossroads of Learning and Change

Anytime you reach a crossroad, it demands both decision and action. It is at that flashpoint of change where learning can be embraced or ignored. One road leads to an upward spiral, while the other does not. It is essential to navigate that crossroad effectively and that is where my work contributes its greatest value. It is possible to accelerate through the curve of change and create significant value through learning.

Most executives interacting with me say "Yes I'm at that crossroad! ... But how do I move forward from here?" I find that executives:

* Already know that change is necessary and is happening with or without their approval
* Are seeing their organizations spend significant dollars on poorly managed change efforts
* Know the standard employee resistance to one more change event all too well - hearing them say "What's next?"
* Are increasingly frustrated with the lack of long term results from change efforts
* Face mounting pressure from employees resisting anything new

Does that sound like you? If so, you might be interested to know that there is another way to move through planned change when

* Learning and Development are used as initiators of change instead of just response mechanisms
* People are engaged in the learning process not just the outcome
* Resistance is embraced as opportunity
* Change becomes the springboard to a new future

If you find commonality between these phrases and your experience, it may be time for us to talk. This year you can join others who have accelerated performance through positive employee engagement in change initiatives.
