This event has been CANCELED. We apologize for any invoice this may have caused.

When organizations are ready to adopt Agile at the enterprise level, people are resistant to organizational changes and have a fear of change due to loss. The organizational change could not take effect if management ignores people’s fear of change. The workshop uses Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help audience recognize signs of fear and understand what caused the fear. In addition, the workshop will practice on how to use both self-actualization and NLP Logical Levels of Change methods to deal with the fear due to changes.
Outcome:
--------
The audience will learn it is OK to have a fear when undergoing organizational changes. The workshop provides exercises to help the audience identify their fear, the cause of the fear, and learn how to overcome the fear during organizational changes such as scaling to enterprise Agile. We expect audience to walk away with a method they can use to deal with their fear due to changes.
