"Change is 'the
new black,'" Meredith Masse, senior vice president at Innovative Career
Consulting, told 80 NEW members at the NEW Denver learning event, Feb. 5, 2015.
While change has
become a constant in the business environment, "people don't resist
change, they resist being changed," Masse said during her keynote
presentation, "Leading Compassionately through Change."
View album on
communication is essential to navigating change, Masse said. She urged NEW
members to consider four Ps and an R when considering and communicating change:
- Purpose – the
- Picture – what the
future will look like
- Plan – how you'll get
- Part – the role
just the "what" but the "why" for any change is critical
for successful transformation, Masse said. Engaging employees in seeing and
feeling why change is important is key.
large groups to the event include Altria, King Soopers and WhiteWave Foods.
