Change is welcome when it's in our control — and usually unwelcome the rest of the time. We are wired to use the wrong paradigm.
To resolve this tension, we need to shift our lens.
The Association for Talent Development (ATD) invited me to share my perspectives on how to shift our relationship with change.
➡️ Why do we struggle with change?
➡️ How can we normalize it?
➡️ How can we deconstruct it, to make it less scary?
➡️ What are some resounding workplace trends when it comes to change?
➡️ How can leaders better prepare themselves to be more resilient and lead through ambiguity with grace?
My thanks to host Ann Parker for inviting me back. It was inspiring to think about our relationship to change and helpful to articulate my thinking about how we can leverage change, normalize the experience, and reduce anxiety.

From Ann Parker:
I recently chatted with some #talentdevelopment #leaders who expressed their weariness at the field's ongoing focus on #change. "Why are we still talking about this? Change is the only constant; change is here to stay." I couldn't agree more. And I've been mulling over how TD leaders might think about and deal with this significant challenge that will never go away.
So I sought a voice that I knew would bring the right mix of authentic experience as a former Fortune 5 CHRO and rich insights from her years of coaching executives. And our conversation did not disappoint - the thoughtfulness with which Amii Barnard-Bahn, JD, PCC approached the topic of change and #changemanagement left me, at moments, speechless.
I can't think of a better way to turn the page from 2023 to 2024 than to consider how we might prepare ourselves to be more #resilient and lead through ambiguity with grace.
