NEW! TAKE THE LID OFF THE JAR... IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE!
Escaping the Barriers That Trap Potential and Prevent Change

Taking action to capture potential is what change is all about. For decades, we have applied a process-focused approach to do just that. Some companies have reported significant improvements in production or cost but many of those improvements were not sustained. Other companies experienced shortfalls in profit and change and management lost credibility as they tried to explain them. What causes these problems? Hidden barriers that work behind the scenes to sabotage change. The lid on a jar prevents the contents of the jar from escaping and prevents anything on the outside from getting in. Barriers to change act like a lid - they hide potential or keep it just out of reach. The same barriers also prevent new ways of thinking from helping us change faster. We have a vision for what can be accomplished but the invisible lid on the jar prevents us from achieving it. We can't see the lid, so we don't understand the dynamics at work - we just know that things still aren't changing as expected. With millions of dollars at stake, it is time to focus on the barriers to change and take the lid off the jar. All sustainable change starts with a new way of thinking, followed by removing the barriers that work behind the scenes to sabotage improvement. I share many stories about leadership, trust, management credibility, the freedom to speak about problems, management's response to problems, courage to tackle uncomfortable issues, barriers that "hide potential and divide people", and more. Actual business cases illustrate how management choices made the difference between success and failure with change. 1-Day Seminar, Can be Condensed for Keynote Delivery Morning Agenda: Perceptions and Barriers • Change • Management’s Role in Change • Barriers that "Hide & Divide" • Real Business Cases that Illustrate What's at Stake - The Coffee Pot Syndrome, Facility Start-Up Process, The Sacred Go-Live Date, Immovable Targets, others • Strategies for Removing barriers Afternoon Agenda: Barrier Assessment • Group exercises listing barriers in their companies • Group discussion selects the “Top 10” for further exploration by the group • Apply new insights and “a-ha moments” from morning session • Action items to apply in the workplace – specific to each management level • Summary of insights from group discussions, recap of takeaways.
