Overcome Immunity to Change: Leadership Exchange Program with Lisa Lahey

Next Step Partners is pleased to announce its next Leadership Exchange event on April 30, 2015. Harvard faculty member and co-author of the groundbreaking book Immunity to Change, Lisa Lahey, will introduce Bay Area business and non-profit leaders to a powerful methodology for overcoming barriers to change.

She will engage participants in an interactive program where they will have an opportunity to gain insight into the Immunity to Change model and how it can be applied to their own development and the development of their organization’s leaders.

Lisa Lahey is co-founder and principal at Minds at Work. She and her colleague Robert Kegan are credited with a breakthrough discovery of a hidden dynamic, the “immunity to change,” which impedes personal and organizational transformation. For this work, they received from Boston University the Gislason Award for exceptional contributions to organizational leadership.

In 2013, they received the Vision of Excellence Award from Harvard’s Institute of Coaching. They have served as invited faculty at the annual Davos Conference sponsored by the World Economic Forum; and their work has been featured in such diverse periodicals as The New York Times Sunday Business Section and the Harvard Business Review. Lahey is also a faculty member at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

The program will give participants an opportunity to learn from leadership expert Lisa Lahey, experience the “Immunity to Change” methodology, and connect with a dynamic group of Bay Area business and non-profit leaders.

About Immunity to Change.

Lisa Lahey and her colleague Robert Kegan developed a methodology to help people overcome their “immunities to change” and close the gap between their good intentions and their actual behaviors. This work is now being used by executives, senior teams and individuals in business, governmental, and educational organizations in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

At Next Step Partners, we often draw upon their method with our coaching and leadership development clients because it’s the most effective process we know of to address internal barriers to self-improvement. To learn more, check out our post, Immunity to Change: Why We Love This Approach.
