The Change Landscape Profile helps change agents and sponsors assess the status of 20 project elements that influence the flow of human energy during a specific change initiative, based on responses to an online questionnaire completed by a representative sample (or population) of targets. We are currently looking for volunteers to pilot this questionnaire. If you’re interested in participating in the pilot, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the Change Landscape Profile, see our Products and Services page.

Dear Resilience Practitioners:
While many of you are using group profiles effectively to help teams explore their combined responses to change, the Team Resilience Profile goes beyond this by including a second tool that evaluates the team’s effectiveness in combining and leveraging resources to create better results. This second tool is built on the model of Synergy described in Daryl Conner’s Managing at the Speed of Change. If you’d like to explore this a little further, Daryl has been blogging about the concepts of Synergy recently at http://changethinking.net/.
The combination of Personal Resilience and Synergy will help you focus teams on the things they need to do to enhance their performance during change.
The certification process will take you through the delivery of your first Team Resilience session. It includes online learning, one-on-one coaching, and applied practice. The price is $900, which includes your first team assessment and report.
For more information, see our Products and Services page. If you’re interested, please contact Jacqueline at email@example.com or 404-371-1017 for more information. There are two prerequisites: PRP Certification and past experience in group facilitation.

Change activities are often additive to daily work. Most members of an organization have specific responsibilities and duties that are important to the smooth operation of the business–producing products, talking to customers, keeping financial records, etc. When we ask people to change something about what they are doing, they often need to participate in planning sessions, attend training, meet with leaders, respond to communications, and experiment with new ways of doing things. In many cases, there is a clear but typically unstated expectation that this will be done without impact to daily productivity.
Change consumes mental energy. When we are doing familiar work, our brains operate in “automatic” mode much of the time. Automatic processing of information is described as “unintentional, involuntary, effortless (not consumptive of limited processing capacity), and occurring outside awareness” by cognitive scientists such as John Bargh. In contrast, when we are engaging in unfamiliar activities, our brains need to [Read more…]
