Successfully Navigating Teams Through Change (Podcast)

Welcome to the next installment of the Leadership Vision Podcast, where we share our expertise in the discovery, practice, and implementation of StrengthsFinder.

Today on the podcast our President and CEO, Brian Schubring, and I discuss the topic of change. No matter your scope of influence or the number of people being affected, change will always be one of the challenges facing leaders. Change can test your adaptive capacities, cast shadows of doubt within yourself, cloud your vision of the future, and erode the clarity of a well-planned strategy. Change may threaten the trust of team members and distract even the most focused members of your team. On the other hand, change can also be a welcome catalyst for greater clarity, compassion, and community.

change can be very relational because it helps us understand really what a person has to contribute even in the midst of their own limitations. ~ Brian Schubring

As we look back on our year at Leadership Vision, it has been one involving lots of change for us. Changes to our team, changes to the way we’re doing business, some changes to our focus and more. Parts of that change have been easy to navigate, while other parts not so much.

Sometimes change is nothing more than an admission of confusion which provides a team an opportunity to remind themselves to clarify what their focus really is. ~ Brian Schubring

So today, Brian and I share three strategies for navigating change that will help teams and individuals come out stronger on the other side.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The first question we ask teams when dealing with change.
  • Understand how you best engage with change (before, during, or after).
  • Strategies for understanding your personal response to change.
  • How your Strengths impact your response to change.

And more!

…change typically provides us with a moment where we can show up for each other for what it is that we are surrounding ourselves with that purpose that we’re all achieving which provides a greater sense of team a greater sense of community and that is what results in trust. ~ Brian Schubring
