Overcoming Immunity to Change (Peter Green)

Limited Capacity seats available

When advised by their doctors that they need to change their habits or they will die of a heart attack, only three out of ten people can successfully make the changes requested. Hard changes are hard not because of a lack of desire or willpower, but because our brains evolved a natural immunity to change. Unexamined, this immunity puts the brakes on difficult personal and organizational changes.
In this session, attendees will learn how to use a simple set of practices to become aware of the hidden competing commitments that impede our ability to make meaningful change. These hidden competing commitments point to big assumptions that we have not yet challenged. The output of the process is a set of safe to fail experiments that help us challenge our big assumptions, easing our brains into new possibility.
So, come with an important personal change that you've been contemplating or struggling with, and leave with excitement about your experiment to finally break through!

Learning Outcomes:
  • The difference between an adaptive and a technical change
  • Why willpower doesn't work for adaptive changes
  • A simple tool to map our personal immunity to change & discover small experiments to help us finally move forward
