What is Immunity to Change™?

Developed by Harvard professors Robert Kegan & Lisa Lahey, ITC is an approach to help individuals, work teams, and organizations make the personal and collective changes that are most important to them – but have proven resistant even to thoughtful plans and heartfelt intentions. It’s a process most useful for your thorniest team or self-improvement goals. This introductory workshop is the first step to learning how to uncover barriers – that is, the hidden immune systems - that prevents us from making the change we seek.

By attending this workshop, you will:

  • Explore the important distinction between adaptive and technical change in individuals and organizations

  • Create your own Immunity to Change™ map

  • Learn more about why you are getting stuck

  • Identify next steps to get unstuck and move towards that elusive change you’ve been wanting and trying to make

  • Hear about how Immunity to Change™ can play a role in building more effective teams and creating Deliberately Developmental Organizations

  • To continue your Immunity to Change™ learning, receive a complimentary thirty-minute consulting session with Carrie or Katie to explore how you might apply this approach.

Who should attend?

If you are an individual leader trying to improve a leadership competency in yourself or an employee, or an HR or OD professional looking to support leaders and teams seeking to make change, then this workshop is perfect for you!
