    The Science of Change Series. Episode 4: Where is your team on the change curve?

    Today we continue with our series on The Science of Change.

    Many times as you bring change in, you miss that what your people are going through is exactly what you went through when you first heard of or contemplated the change.

    They are simply behind you in terms of time.

    Most managers and leaders miss this, however, and endure the consequences.

    Today, we focus on helping understand and manage the change curve that is a natural part of change

    The Science of Change Series. Episode 2: What Most People Miss With Change: Managing The Invisible

    Are you going through a big change at work and struggling to help people change?

    Are you struggling with change yourself?

    It goes without saying that change is hard but a big reason you struggle is because you are likely missing the most important part of change, something that is invisible to you.

    Are you struggling to help people change?

    Whether it is someone you work with or manage or someone at home, are you finding it challenging and frustrating?

    It goes without saying that change is hard but a big reason most people struggle to help others change is because they do not understand what is going on at the brain level as people try to engage in change.

    Over the next few episodes, we are going to cover the Science of Change series. In today’s podcast, I look at why change is so hard.

    How Do You Show Up When You’re Under Pressure?

    How Do You Show Up When You’re Under Pressure?

    You want to build a great team. But you face lots of pressure and stress to deliver on deadlines and to manage change. And it is hard.

    And people are burning out. What to do?

    It is in these moments, when we are under pressure, when we need to be especially aware of how we show up.

    Because it matters. It sets the tone for the teams we are on, it creates the culture, it affects important things like burnout, and whether people stay or leave.

    In today’s podcast, I discuss the importance knowing how we show up.

    So glad you are here.

    "The words of the tongue should have three gatekeepers: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary?"
    Arab proverb

    "A smile or a panic will spread through a group of people far faster than any virus ever could. When you walk into the office or a negotiation, then, wash your bad mood away before you see us. Don't cough on us, don't sneeze on us, sure, but don't bring your grouchiness, your skepticism or your fear in here either. It might spread."
