The author Robert C. Gallagher wrote, “Change is inevitable - except from a vending machine.” Nowhere is this statement more true (sadly on both accounts) than on a college campus. Colleges and universities have always had a paradoxical relationship with change. We owe much of our lore and storied traditions to the past and yet, institutions of higher education are often on the forefront of dramatic technological and social change. Perhaps our romance for the past is driven by how often we are living in the future.
When change is necessary, it can be hard to know how to get people on board. Dr. Adam Peck is an educational consultant specializing in using “confluent values” to drive change. This concept is based on the assumption that when people share values, and these values can be understood, they can be used to set common vision and goals. For example, if a group is intrinsically motivated (motivated by strong personal values of what is right and wrong) trying to motivate them with incentives or money may not only fail to produce the desired motivation, they may actually de-motivate. Understanding how to assess how the values of a group impact their motivation is one of the most important leadership skills. This webinar will discuss how to align mission, values and action to accomplish new things.
