"It's not that people don't like change, they don't like the process of change" - Mary Lynn Manns
Changes affect us deep down. And changes in everyday working life can also end in chaos. And everyone knows that skeptic in the team who points out problems and grievances all the time. Mary Lynn gives talks and workshops in which she explains how leaders can not only announce changes but also implement them successfully without offending their employees. However, these perspectives and techniques can also be applied if you are not a manager.
Mary Lynn Manns is an educator, author and speaker on change. She is co-author of the books "Fearless Change: Patterns for Introducing New Ideas" and "More Fearless Change: Strategies for Making Your Ideas Happen". She is currently a professor at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. She has given numerous global presentations and workshops on change at conferences and in organizations such as Microsoft, Amazon, Procter & Gamble, Apple and Avon.
