LAST Conference 2018 – Overcoming Your Immunity To Change
My conference talk at LAST 2018 titled “Overcoming Your Immunity To Change” is available on Slideshare.
We talk about people needing to change their mindsets or have an agile mindset. But what does this really mean?
In this session we will cover a brief introduction to the research by Kegan and Lahey where they discovered that behind each of our habits is a strongly held belief that not only keeps us in our groove, but also fights any change that threatens the status quo.
We will discuss why personal growth and increasing our mental complexity is so important for agile and business transformations in today’s VUCA world to succeed.
We will create your Immunity To Change Map which is a simple way to bring to light the your personal barriers to change. We will start by outlining your commitment to an improvement goal. Then we will sketch out the things that you are either doing or not doing that prevent progress towards the achievement goal. The Map then identifies competing commitments, as well as the big underlying assumptions behind those competing commitments.
The objective is to pinpoint and address whatever beliefs and assumptions are blocking you from the changes you want to make.
You will leave this workshop with a better understanding and tools to overcome the forces of inertia and transform your life and your work. And through this journey you get a better understanding of what changing mindsets really mean.
