Organizational Change; How Leaders Build Trust and Buy-In
Facilitated by Karalee Picard with North Omaha Music & Arts(NOMA)
Adaptive leadership is both a practice of (1) collectively marshaling people to confront tough challenges, generate solutions, and thrive, and (2) being agile and adept in the face of complexity to intuitively assemble people and create space for people to tackle tough challenges, create innovative solutions, and flourish. During organizational change, leaders must engage with employees to deliver information, offer opportunities for participation, and to build trust in those members managing the change. Throughout individual leader-follower interactions, leaders will learn about people and will better understand what is valuable in the organizational culture and must be preserved, as well as how to motivate and mobilize change through focusing others’ attention on the needs of the organization. In organizational change, leaders must understand that followers will mobilize behind the leader to achieve collective efforts or goals, and in order to accomplish that, leaders must understand that success will likely only come when followers can help create the change.
Attendees will understand how adaptive leadership is necessary to create buy-in and build trust with followers in order to create change in an organization. Understanding your own leadership and communication styles will help to be able to adapt to others’ styles. Attendees will leave having an idea about how to engage with people who have different styles to build relationships and trust.
