CMI extends a warm invitation to its members to attend this exclusive webinar event.

Looking to build out your change toolbox? Struggling to identify why your change programme is struggling? Can’t understand why your people are not engaging with your change?

As practitioners we are always looking for new and interesting ways to think about how we deliver and embed change. Join our latest webinar to hear just that….

In a recent McKinsey article, Boaz and Fox state, “many people aren’t aware that the choices they make are extensions of the reality that operates in their hearts and minds. Indeed, you can live your whole life without understanding the inner dynamics that drive what you do and say.”

Consistent with Boaz and Fox, the idea proposed in this presentation is that a lack of desire at an individual level, is a key impediment to change and that the application of organizational attachment based interventions which aim to provide some understanding of the individual inner drivers will increase the likelihood of successful change.

When an organization undertakes a change activity, the presence of organizational attachment style as a change driver, can range from being overtly known (but not necessarily understood) through to being completely invisible to the primary sponsor. Is attachment style the underlying driver in preventing the successful implementation of your next organizational change?

Following from their successful session at the 2017 ACMP conference, Dr Victoria Grady and Ian Noakes talk about how change managers can benefit from the application of Organizational Attachment to their change management project.

Victoria M Grady is currently the Director of MBA/MSM Programs at George Mason University. She is also an Assistant Professor Management/Organizational Behavior in the School of Business at George Mason University. Victoria’s research is focused on the behavioral implications resulting from loss of stability suffered by organizations introducing and implementing organizational change. Her consulting practice includes federal government institutions, non-profit organizations, higher education, and health related institutions. She is co-author of The Pivot Point: Success in Organizational Change. Victoria is a founding member of ACMP and is a current member of the ACMP DC Chapter.

Ian Noakes is a management consultant with an extensive organizational change and marketing in regulated sectors—notably telecoms, insurance, rail and food manufacturing. Ian’s corporate portfolio includes Price Waterhouse Coopers, IBM and Hewlett-Packard with diverse cultural experience spanning Asia Pacific, Europe and the USA. Coming from an IT and Telecom background enables him to assist clients on IT based transformation programmes where people and business change intersect. This is arguably as important as the technical element integration in the successful implementation of change but is often overlooked.
