As healthcare leaders and practitioners, you are expected to change to meet demands or capitalize on opportunities. Sometimes you get to guide the change from the beginning and other times you are expected to implement a change determined by someone else. Regardless of the impetus, how do you help change efforts succeed particularly given the historical odds of success? Only about a third of change efforts accomplish their designed purposes, another third fall woefully short, and a third fail. In this presentation, and drawing from over 25 years of research on the “Building Readiness for Change” model by Achilles Armenakis and Stan Harris, you will explore the five key concerns that underlie individuals’ decisions to resist, comply with, or support changes and examine them in your own context. You will also gain insight into the six leadership behaviors that can shape these concerns to build change support and enthusiasm.
