Upon communicating change to employees, did you ever hear: "When is management going to understand it is the real world down here?" How about, "If my boss would just get off my back and let me do my job, everything would be okay!" How about, "Why can't they leave well enough alone?" These expressions reflect symptoms of employees not only resisting change, but more importantly, leaders potentially not fulfilling their responsibility in communicating change. This presentation has been designed to help leaders communicate change and helping employees overcome resistance. Common sense says, if employees are good at resisting change, a leader needs to be just as effective in getting them to accepting change.

John Graci is an Author, Consultant, and Leadership Adviser with more than 20 years of management experience in production, office, union and non-union environments. He has the unique ability to look at the leader and employee relationship in straightforward terms which allows him to coach managers through the process of changing their employees’ attitudes and performances. John also assists leaders in understanding the responsibilities that go along with their position and the consequences of not applying their knowledge. John possesses a folksy, tell-it-like-it-is approach that comes across as refreshing and riveting. Executives often thank him for articulating, in very practical terms, what they have been trying to get across to their employees for years.   

John has a Bachelor of Science in Speech Communication from UW-River Falls and is a frequent presenter at SHRM events.

The session is approved for 1 hour General Credit through HRCI (SPHR, PHR) and 1 credit hour for SHRM-SCP, and CP.
