Say YES! to Change: Leadership Version
3 Keys to Getting Employees to Say YES! to Workplace Changes

Up to 70% of all change efforts fail to achieve their goals. That is right - whether a culture change, reorganization, merger, layoff, new project, outsourcing, process improvement or new leadership assignment - close to 3/4 of these change projects fail to meet their objectives. In this high energy, information packed speech, Polsky reveals the research based keys to beating the odds. Get your team ready, you are all about to change. And this time it will stick. This speech will provide your leaders of reorganizations, mergers/acquisitions , new strategies or new leaders of an organization the tools they need to get their employees to say YES! to any change. Lawrence, the world leading expert on Rapid Change, has inspired and instructed thousands of leaders on 5 continents, in companies and government agencies to activate and motivate their employees to say YES! to change. The 3 keys to YES! are taught through fun and engaging stories, examples and quick activities of how to apply the YES! Attitude to succeed. Leaders learn how to engage themselves and their employees in making change work through: Y = You need a big Y, a compelling reason, to get employees to change. Hear what other famous and not so famous leaders used to get themselves and their employees motivated. Find out the 2 key elements of a strong, motivating WHY Change message and how to communicate it in 60 seconds. E = Expect Emotions. All change is emotional. Learn the one missing element in most change communication and how to use it to engage skeptical employees. Also, a simple 3 step process to handle the emotions of employees in one on one and group settings. S = Support. You can't succeed on your own. Find out what the research says about which of your employees you need to get on your side first. Learn strategies to support yourself through the stress of it all. Lawrence knows first-hand how change tests a person's character and gives us the opportunity to learn how powerful we are. In January 2000, he learned on the same night that his wife was pregnant with their first child and that he had a tumor. The 3 years that followed tested his strength, courage and ability to cope with change on every level. His lessons from that experience, and subsequent research of others overcoming major life challenges are the basis for his best-selling ebook Say YES! To Change: 27 Strategies for Motivating Yourself and Your Team. In the business world, Lawrence has led corporate IT and HR change initiatives and consulted to leaders around the world on how to change company structure, processes & culture. Since 1993, Lawrence has inspired and instructed close to 10,000 professionals in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia to thrive during change. His high energy programs make him a sought after speaker at international conferences. He applied the lessons from these experiences in co-authoring another best-selling Perfect Phrases for Communicating Change (McGraw-Hill).
