If there’s anything certain in life – it is change, and yet we all still struggle through it. This is the third installment of Dr. Jackalyn Rainosek’s webinar series on change and barriers to change. This session focuses on the last 6 of the 16 blocks to change, the formula for change, and the change profiles that are present in organizations.
Jackalyn Rainosek is the CEO and co-founder of DTP Leadership Group, which assists individuals with emotional intelligence and leadership skills. She is a master who has trained and coached leaders in the public and private sectors to affect positive individual and organizational transformation.
Specifics of her discussion include:
- A recap of the 6 blocks to change covered in her previous session: Playing the victim, playing by old rules, justifying not changing, attempting to control the uncontrollable, slowing down the process, and being afraid of the future.
- The last six blocks to change:
- Picking the wrong battles and being so invested in the fight that valid reasons for change aren’t heard.
- Unplugging from the job which may look like being complacent, disconnected, exhausted, or quiet quitting.
- Avoiding assignments, passing responsibilities to others, procrastinating, or wanting the job to be formulated like their old job.
- Trying to eliminate uncertainty and stability in an attempt to control what’s going on in the environment.
- Expecting managers to keep staff accountable instead of taking responsibility for one’s self.
- Enabling actions like compensating for others’ weaknesses, taking care of people’s jobs, or being overly sympathetic.
- How the blocks to change can be overcome by:
- Addressing the points of their resistance and presenting the benefits of the change.
- Offering them with options to remain engaged.
- Getting them to reflect on what’s hindering them from contributing and the impact of their actions on the organization.
- Understanding their definition and experience of instability and letting them know what the change entails.
- Clarifying everyone’s responsibility and creating a sense of ownership.
- Reminding of everyone’s respective responsibility and setting boundaries
- The change formula that requires a sense of dissatisfaction, a vision, and steps to overcome resistance, and create change.
- Outlining the change profiles and the roles they play in the process of change in any entity.
- A recap of the process of clearing as a means of grounding.
- The simple LEB model to implement change.
- The importance of moving people away from the blocks to change.
Points raised during the Q&A are about:
- Leaders who are hindering change.
- The best resources on change.
- How new staff members can be negatively influenced by existing employees.
- Distinguishing quiet quitting from just overtasked employees that refuse to take on more work.
