    EPISODE TRANSCRIPT
    PHIL: Hello everyone, welcome to the change on the run podcast, where we discuss common change challenges and ways to address them. When you're short of time, and I'm your host, Phil Buckley. Today's topic is identifying your lessons learned. Understanding how our experience impacts outcomes helps build change capacity and skill and dramatically improves organizational knowledge of how projects work within our cultures. Experience is the best teacher, which enables us to repeat success patterns and eliminate future roadblocks to achieve our goals in the quickest and most effective way. Learning occurs in the moment. Something worked or didn't work because of specific factors, and we often lose learnings we don't record quickly. This applies equally to organizations and individuals and is especially true in the middle of projects because we tend to remember only beginnings and endings, leaving the key middle ground foggy. So, how do you identify, record and learn from your experiences during a large change initiative? And my guest today is Kathy Repa. Kathy, welcome to the show.
    KATHY: Thank you so much for having me, I am so excited to be a guest.
    PHIL: Thank you, Kathy, and thanks so much for taking the time to be here. Kathy has over thirty years of global human resources and change management experience. She is currently the Vice President HR, Global Supply Chain at Mondelez International. Kathy holds a BA, Human Resources Development at DeSales University. So, Kathy, looking back at your thirty-plus year’s career and we've known each other for over ten years, what's been your experience with personal lessons learned. I look at you as the queen of lessons learned and I've learned so much about how you do so just generally. What's been your experience?
    KATHY: You know, one of my biggest lessons, and I think your book Change on the run really triggers a lot for me, is that we run a lot when we're doing these changes. We run from one change to another. We're change junkies. It's sort of our drug of choice and we look forward to those things. What we don't take time often enough as change professionals, to take a pause and to think about what we have actually learned, what lessons we can pass on to others or what lessons we can take forward ourselves, and I think that by doing that you don't often get as much value as we possibly could from that pause for purpose, that time to refresh, that time to reflect, and I'm a huge journalizer, so I do often sit back at the end of the week and maybe as I've gotten into my twenty and thirty years of running change, I do it much more frequently to say, you know, what things went well about this and what am I most proud of and what do I want to learn from that to take forward and make sure that I incorporate in the next ones? You know what things didn't go so well, and sometimes we punish ourselves for what didn't go so well, and I like to sit back and say, well, was that in my control? Because if it's not in my control, then why would I punish myself for it not going well? Then? That's not to say I don't take that as a lesson to do something differently, but I don't sit there and beat myself up over and over again about something that wasn't in my control, but rather reflect on how I can manifest it into something that next time might be much more controllable. And then I do celebrate, even if I do a happy dance around my place by myself. You do have to pat yourself on the back, you know, because it's not that peop

    Making Decisions with Stephanie Wilkes

    Making Decisions with Stephanie Wilkes

    Phil is joined by board member, breakthrough consultant and executive and team coach Stephanie Wilkes to discuss how to make decisions during change.
    Most transformation post-mortems uncover decisions that led to success or failure. Facts, options, assessment criteria, available time and risk all play roles in the decisions made and the ability to implement them.
    During large change initiatives, decisions are often made quickly in response to new conditions or information. They require focus, process, and at times, management intuition to make the best call and align leaders and their teams on how to activate them.
    So, how do you make decisions during transformations that direct and move an organization to new ways of working to adopt change?

    Rewarding Team Members with Matt Lloyd

    Rewarding Team Members with Matt Lloyd

    Phil is joined by CFO/COO and change leader Matt Lloyd to discuss how to reward team members during change.
    People have a need to be recognized for work that is meaningful and is necessary for success. From recognition to gifts, rewards play an important role in maintaining morale, focus, and performance. They acknowledge people’s hard work and give them confidence in their future contributions. 
    Rewards also shape team members’ perceptions of how they were treated, appreciated, and valued, influencing their levels of engagement and commitment to future projects.
    So, how do you reward team members to acknowledge their work and inspire future efforts and performance?

    Responding to Adjustments with Laura Oliver

    Responding to Adjustments with Laura Oliver

    Phil is joined by change management and not-for-profit leader Laura Oliver to discuss how to respond to adjustments during change.
    Change initiatives typically involve continual revisions. New information emerges, stakeholder needs shift, and requirements change. Many people dive into accommodating the changes without assessing whether they help or hinder the projects and their success. Conversely, reacting quickly and taking action can be more important than extensively assessing options and determining the best response.
    So, how do you respond to plan adjustments that accommodate necessary changes and keep resources focused on delivering your defined outcomes?

    Leveraging Your Existing Culture with Sarah Smith

    Leveraging Your Existing Culture with Sarah Smith

    Phil is joined by change and transformation expert Sarah Smith to discuss how to leverage your existing culture during change.
    An organization’s culture describes how work gets done. It’s a collection of attitudes, beliefs, practices and behaviours that dictate how people treat each other. It is also a source of strength you can tap into because it’s familiar, deeply rooted and has emotional connections with people.
    So, how do you leverage your existing culture and its strengths to adopt new ways of working?

    Identifying Project Lessons Learned with Brendon Baker

    Identifying Project Lessons Learned with Brendon Baker

    Phil is joined by change expert Brendon Baker to discuss how to identify and apply project lessons learned.
    Managing the closing of a change project and capturing learnings is challenging because most leaders and project team members have mentally moved on to their next roles and challenges. 
    A lessons-learned exercise is essential for building change capacity and skill in your organization. It documents which approaches and activities worked and should be repeated by other project teams, and which didn’t and shouldn’t.
    So, how do you identify project lessons learned that are instructive, recorded, acknowledged and embedded in an organization's ways of working?
