Identify responses to change and discover how to manage those responses within yourself and your team.

"People don't resist change; they resist being changed."

– Peter Senge

There are countless obstacles to implementing and managing change in a modern hospital. Inside every hospital, multiple organizations are dealing with federal and state regulations, accreditations, and competitive pressures, as well as constant changes in technology, administrative processes, and medical practices. All this happens within the life-and-death, 24/7 environment.

It's a fact—change happens. It's how we respond to change that really matters. By recognizing the different responses to change, you can more consciously respond to change and help others learn to adapt to change in a similarly effective way, without impeding patient safety and quality of care.

During “Prime Yourself for Change,” you will get real-world, hands-on guidance that will help you identify your own preferred style of managing change while you learn to more effectively respond to the psychological and physiological responses to change.

You will also receive practical concepts from Kurt Lewin's theory of change, as well as best-practice strategies from Christopher Musselwhite's book Dangerous Opportunity: Making Change Work to help you better manage change within yourself and your team.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Analyze physiological and psychological responses to change, and identify your individual response to change.
  • Recognize and identify types of resistance to change.
  • Apply your understanding to manage adapting to change with self and others.
