Dr. Hoopes has delivered talks and workshops to clients around the world. She loves engaging people in learning about their own resilience, challenging leaders to build more resilient organizations, and talking about what she has learned in her 20+ years of work in the field of organizational change.
Prosilience: Building Your Resilience for a Turbulent World
Resilience—the ability to navigate high levels of challenge while maintaining well-being and productivity—is a critical life skill. Everyone faces challenging situations in life—small and large, planned and unplanned, work-related and personal. As the pace of change continues to increase, the level of challenge rises as well. In this workshop, participants will learn about the “resilience muscles” that help them thrive in turbulence, assess their current strength, practice using these characteristics in engaging exercises, and plan activities to build their readiness for change. They will walk away with practical suggestions and resources for further development.
Leading with Energy: Fueling Resilience and Fighting Overload
Human energy is the fuel for successful change. Every major initiative draws on a combination of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energy. When the demands of change exceed available energy, people begin to display symptoms of overload, including absenteeism, poor decision-making, and increased errors and accidents. Leaders play an important role in helping people build, sustain, and replenish their energy—first through modeling, and then through coaching, development, and establishing systems and processes that value and protect employee well-being. In this workshop, leaders at all levels will learn how and why energy is critical to productivity, assess their personal energy, evaluate the organization’s energy-enabling practices, and plan a strategy for increasing the organization’s human energy sustainability. They will walk away with insights about themselves, their leadership practices, and the things they can do to build a more resilient organization.
Strategic Change Readiness: Preparing for Permanent Whitewater
As the pace of change in organizations continues to increase, and as multiple, overlapping changes become the norm, leaders need to think strategically about building the organization’s readiness for change. This workshop outlines four aspects of strategic change readiness: building a resilient organization, increasing change knowledge, managing capacity and demand, and creating execution capability. Participants will complete an organizational assessment in each area and identify critical next steps to strengthen the organization’s readiness for living in a world of continuous change.
