WHAT YOU’LL BE COVERING • Understand how changing our beliefs and existing thoughts can be one of the biggest barriers to change. • Identify existing beliefs—whether at the organizational, team or individual level—that may be impacting our ability to change. • Discuss our level of change readiness, and how it compares to other teams in our organization. • Define new habits or routines to help keep us more open-minded. • Overall, use a current or upcoming change initiative as the backdrop to the Conversation.
