Why is change so difficult, even when we are genuinely committed to it? How can we do a better job closing the gap between what we intend and what we are actually able to bring about? Desire and motivation aren't enough: even when it's literally a matter of life or death, the ability to change remains maddeningly elusive. In this talk, Deborah Helsing will show how our individual beliefs–along with the collective mind-sets in our organizations–combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. When the status quo is so potent, how can we change ourselves and our organizations? Deborah will use examples from higher education to illustrate and encourage.
