We all know the healthcare industry is experiencing unprecedented and high velocity change unseen in the history of the industry. Reacting to change rather than understanding the cognitive origin of rapid change can be harmful to the organization and may create a work place that lacks “listening”, and acts more punitive in its’ nature. The pace of change combined with competition for human capital and the pressure change causes in organizational behavior creates new leadership requirements for human resource professionals at all levels. Transforming your “Lens” as a HR leader during unexpected and rapid change is not an option but a mandate. The presentation will introduce human resource leaders to a different viewpoint about unexpected change through an exploration of Karl Weick’s (1995) theory about sensemaking and its’ applicability to creating a different view of change that can be leveraged to raise HR’s
influence in organizational change. Participants will learn the seven properties of sensemaking and assess their individual and organizational behavior in change readiness and acceptance. The learning in presentation can facilitate leadership development and be used in the workplace to foster change using greater awareness of change impact, increasing communication and develop a platform of humanity in change.
