Workshop: Changing Mindset and Behaviors 
Global research on change initiatives indicates that 70% of them are not successful. The reason for this trend is not because of lack of planning or execution but inadequate attention and effort put into dealing with the human factor involved in change. The workshop exposes the participants to a model that can be practiced in any kind of change initiative that involves people. Organizational examples and cases will be used to illustrate how different facets of the model can be applied, especially to bring about change in the mindset and behaviors of people involved in the change. The workshop will also draw on the change experiences of the participants and allow for discussion and sharing of views and perspectives to make the learning enjoyable, insightful and practical.
