The Spencer, Shenk, Capers Change Workshop!

Leadership Process: Motivating Change (LPMC)


Happy 2015! One thing that's inevitable with a new year is change, in both our personal lives and our careers. Instead of just enduring that change, make it a New Year's resolution to thrive in the change and to leverage change so you move forward in the most effective way possible! Spencer, Shenk, Capers and Associates is uniquely equipped with our "Leadership Process: Motivating Change" (LPMC) Workshop to help you successfully manage yourself and your teams through the inevitability of change.

The skill in successfully anticipating and leading change both tactically and emotionally is a business imperative for all leaders. As "change agents", leaders hold the responsibility for monitoring and managing the activities and information that enable employees, customers and other stakeholders to adapt to and embrace change. While change initiatives usually focus on the project management change tactics, the critical emotional and mental processes are overlooked.

LPMC introduces the research and proven sequential processes that best facilitates the emotional transitions accompanying any change. A comprehensive Managers Guide provides the tools and skills to assist people in working through the dynamics of change. Although we cannot predict the speed with which individuals adapt to change, we can accelerate the process by applying the knowledge of The Change Cycle, ultimately decreasing time and productivity loss.

The LPMC is offered as a Public or in-house workshop. If you have an interest in this workshop either for yourself, a small group or a larger session done in-house, we can schedule this training as soon into the New Year as is convenient. While we do not currently have a Public LPMC Workshop scheduled in 2015, if we build a critical mass for one we will schedule it. Please contact Mike Alex at malex@ssca.com to let him know of your interest in this workshop and we will work with you on scheduling!



Desktop Coach - Inner Work

It is probably an overstatement, but I have seldom met a person over 50 years old who was void of a spiritual life and could still claim personal fulfillment and happiness. Maybe a better way of saying this is, “Our frequent failure as leaders to deal with our inner lives leaves too many of us and of our institutions in the dark.” (Thank you Parker Palmer, Let Your Life Speak [link: http://www.amazon.com/Let-Your-Life-Speak-Listening/dp/0787947350]).

Through the wisdom of Parker Palmer, we must ask ourselves: Do we value “inner-work”, the emotional and/or spiritual effort we make to become more aware of our personal needs? We at Spencer Shenk Capers see examples day after day of people behaving in ways that are counter-productive to themselves, their goals, and their organizations. We don’t need to list the ways. People get in trouble because their “shadow side” shows up, resulting in ineffective, detrimental behavior.
