Together in Isolation: Change Management

Product Description

To show our support to the library community at this time, the Education Institute has offered 4 free webinars for Ontario Library Association and Partnership members and at a subsidized cost to non-members.

These sessions are meant to build connection and information-sharing as libraries begin to consider what comes next as they navigate this rapidly changing landscape.  

As a non-profit and a charity, we are launching a pay-what-you-can fee structure for our upcoming webinars to help recuperate our operational cost. We will continue to program webinar content that will support you through this challenging time. 

Originally aired Tuesday, May 28.

Purchase the recording to have access to it for 1 year from the date the session took place.

About this Session:

Even the best plans constructed by admirable leaders fail without the support of the staff who implement them. As we know, change is hard at the best of times, and fast, radical change is even harder, something COVID-19 has amply demonstrated. But when staff trust leadership, project managers, and their plans, an organization can be flexible, creative, caring, and nimble, even in a crisis. Trust is not a choice, and it’s not something any leader can demand. Trust must be created and built upon, and change management is the process by which building trust becomes part of any process. In this session, we’ll talk about change management approaches you can apply today that will help to build strong trust in your organization, with a particular focus on how to face resistance to change with curiosity and respect. 

In this session, participants will learn:

  • How to foster strong trust in your organization;
  • How to face resistance to change;
  • Best practices for change management
