Change Management Speaker Series
Session One: The Myths of Change
Thursday, March 2, 2017


The security industry changes each time new technologies enter the market - and while it's one thing to learn how to use those technologies - it's another thing entirely to assimilate the changes they bring into our organizations. 'Change Management' isn't about the technologies that introduce change, its about how we manage the disruptive nature of those changes. When we've done something a particular way for a decade, there is a natural reluctance to start doing things differently. Change Management is about how we deal with that 'reluctance' and enable our organizations to move into the future faster, and with less chaos, stress and confusion.

CANASA is offering an expert on management strategies and this will serve as a value to our members. Please click here for a sneak peek at the professional speaker we’re providing to help you grow with your business.

What is Change Management Really About?
The presentation is highly interactive, thought provoking and guaranteed to generate good, deep, discussion about how Change is, and should be, implemented in an organization. It is also, unavoidably fun.

Ask most managers this simple question, “Do people resist Change” – and their answer will be an enthusiastic and uncompromising “Yes!”

If you’re in charge (Or think you’re in control) of Change – then it’s necessary to understand that some of our beliefs surrounding Change are Myths – and that acting as if those myths were true, make Change more difficult than it needs to be.

Once those myths are put to the side, there’s huge opportunity to transform Change from the threat that we seem to think it is, to a situation ripe with possibilities. Change, regardless of our views about it, is how we grow – it’s also necessary to understand that sometimes, when we’re surrounded by start-ups and new technologies – Change is necessary just in order to maintain our position in our industry.
