Overview: In this session, Jeff Davidson lays out what top professionals do to maintain confidence and balance, independent of the frequency of change to which they're exposed, and how they maintain a sense of breathing space along the way. If you work for a living, you won't want to miss hearing this. Jeff Will cover a variety of innovative approaches to handling change, among them:
Jump Starting : Initiating a small part of a project or activity in advance (getting a sneak preview) so as to gain familiarity for when the project or activity actually begins
Total Immersion : Surrounding yourself with everything you need to fully engage in the change process. This may involve assembling resources, people, and space, as well as ensuring that you have a quiet, secure environment, free of distractions
Managing the Beforehand : Living with the ever-present acknowledgment that change is continually forthcoming and preparing for activities or events in advance of the need to do so
Leapfrogging : Recognizing that while you can't keep up with all the changes in your industry and environment, you can periodically leapfrog over the developments of the last several months and "catch up," in a way
Picking Your Spots : Related to leapfrogging, pick your spots in the future, say six months, whereby you want to have a new product or service introduced, have some new technology fully integrated into your operations, and so forth
Go Cold Turkey : Simply suspend operations and engage in whatever it takes to incorporate a new way of doing things. This is enhanced by ensuring that you'll have no disturbances, by bringing in outside experts, and assembling any other resources you need to succeed
Days of Grace : After deciding to implement major change, build in "days of grace" to allow yourself to proceed at half to three-quarters speed. Acknowledging that assimilating the new changes will take time and involve some disruption and not expecting to achieve your normal productivity for now
Why should you Attend: Everywhere you look, there are life-long career professionals losing confidence in their ability to stay competitive in our rapidly changing society. Concurrently, no one in society has a long-term lock on any market niche, and no body of information affords a strategic competitive advantage for very long. The reality of our times is that everyone is feeling at least a little unsure of himself, and in that sense everyone is in the same boat.
In such an environment of information and communication overload, it is easy to feel anything but confident. After all, your ability to keep pace is all but impossible. You can remain confident, however, despite the pace of change. What do confident people do to maintain confidence independent of the frequency of change they're exposed to? How they maintain a sense of breathing space along the way?
