EXec EXcel Group president Ian Ziskin, lead author of The Secret Sauce for Leading Transformational Change, joined HRUprising Podcast host Lucinda Carney recently to discuss leading transformational change on an individual, team, organizational, and societal level.

HRUprising Podcast with Lucinda CarneyKey takeaways from the session included:

  • We should always be open to adaptation and change.
  • There’s a tremendous amount of wasted energy in denying data and explaining away things that do not reinforce our preferred view of the environment.
  • We must surround ourselves with good people who wish to aid us in driving change.
  • Most successful change efforts involve moving at a speed that feels uncomfortable. We need to embrace this discomfort, for that is where change happens.
