Book Club Event : Think Again
We're excited to announce our first book club meeting of 2022! Over the course of the next year, we will hold quarterly book club meetings to discuss trending topics that affect the change management space. We'll highlight key takeaways and discus how to apply them to past projects while also discussing ways in which we can apply them in the future.
Our new book club will hold our first meeting on August 26th where we'll discuss Adam Grant's newest book, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know. Lauded by other well-known authors like Brene Brown and Daniel Kahneman, Think Again explores the relatively new topic of unlearning and rethinking as a way to promote a culture of learning at work and at home.
"The bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals examines the critical art of rethinking: learning how to question your opinions and open others people's minds, which can position you for excellence in work and life"
The book is divided into three parts:
1) Individual Rethinking
2) Interpersonal Rethinking
3) Collective Rethinking
1) Think like a scientist - treat your views as hypotheses, not facts
2) Embrace the joy of being wrong - it means you learned something new
3) Seek out those who challenge your views and leverage task conflict for learning
4) Recognize that contentious topics are complex and discuss as such
5) Establish psychological safety through leaders who lead by example
Application from a change management perspective:
How can we as change practitioners convince our clients to rethink their normal process? For example, how do we address our own previously held beliefs as individuals while also leveraging constructive conflict in teams as we build cultures of learning at work?
Overcome the barrier of "This is the way we've always done it." A good portion of this book is focused on questioning previously held beliefs like this whether it's at the individual, team, or org level. Ultimately by questioning these assumptions, one will be able to do better in life and at work.
In this engaging LIVE virtual Change Management Boot Camp, participants use a case study and the ACMP Change Standard, to demonstrate how to successfully plan and execute organizational change, use behavior to trigger, action and reinforce change, mitigate change resistance and change saturation and plan for and measure change adoption, proficiency and sustainment all while gaining 22.5 credits for the full CCMP™educational requirement!

Advocate for Chaos: Coaching Leaders Through Change
In this session we will explore the role of the change leadership coach, specifically as a change leadership advocate.
As change management practitioners we often focus on what we need to do and how leaders can help us. We provide leaders with draft communications, with work plans, and with insights about their organization that we uncover either through assessments or from professional observation. We even give them instructions about how to be a change leader. Yet, are we really helping the leader or are we just overwhelming them?
The leader who finds themselves in the midst of change is often bombarded with advice, guidance, and direction, but who is advocating for the leader? Enter the change leadership coach.
1. The change leadership coaching role
2. Identifying leaders in need of a change coach
3. The change leadership coaching process
Jeff Bailey has been supporting change efforts for 30 years starting as a training designer and developer at Arthur Andersen’s Professional Development Center in St. Charles, IL. He also helped expand the training and development team at First Card in Elgin, IL, which was a division of the former First Chicago Bank (Yes, he realizes that was a while ago).
Jeff has been focused on the change management discipline most of the last 20 years, specifically within the context of large-scale systems implementation. His clients have been state and local governments that are typically replacing 20 to 30 year old systems and processes. Fun times! Most recently Jeff created a pilot CCMP study group through the Midwest chapter. A new study group is forming soon.
Jeff earned his masters degree in instructional design from Northern Illinois University and his doctorate in organization development from Benedictine University where He has been an adjunct faculty member for more than 12 years.
Jeff lives in downstate Illinois, just north of the Bloomington/Normal area with his wife who together have rescued dozens of beagles over the years. If you give him a call, you’ll hear the foster failures in the background.
