Discover how to melt people’s resistance to change and facilitate profound leadership and personal transformation. Join Dr. Dean Herman, the Principal of Herman Consulting, a psychologist and executive consultant, to learn a systematic approach for identifying and dissolving engrained personal patterns and generating deep, lasting change.

This presentation will provide learning relevant to both the
Change Management and the Coaching competencies in the ASTD Competency Model.

Lifelong personality patterns impel people to resist their own growth regardless of the quality of your services or coaching. In this dynamic and interactive presentation, Dr. Herman will describe a precise and logical approach he has developed that dislodges stultifying personality patterns and generates deep, lasting change. You’ll pick up valuable tools and strategies to foster an exquisite degree of self-mastery and relational mastery.

In attending this session, you will:

  • Understand how to melt resistance and get leaders deeply committed to changing.
  • Gain penetrating psychological wisdom that will fundamentally shift how you see the behaviors of those you serve – so that you can help them calibrate their actions and elicit the responses they need.
  • Acquire a framework for showing managers how they create the very situations that so frustrate them – and how, through self-awareness, they can generate very different outcomes.
  • Learn a powerful system of insights and tools for triggering profound leadership and personal transformation.
  • Attendees will be provided a precise graphic map depicting (1) the emotional states that block openness to change; and (2) the separate paths (with accompanying tools) for transforming each of these states.
  • Attendees will receive additional mapping tools they can use with their clients to show them (1) how they are creating most of their own difficulties; and (2) how they can bring in different perspectives and behaviors to produce more optimal outcomes.
  • Specific additional tools will be provided for transforming resistance to change.
