How to Lead Through Change with Marché Pleshette
Change is one of the few constants in life, and yet we often fear and resist it. As humans, our brains are hardwired for what we’re used to, and when something unexpected pops up, our brains are triggered to protect us from potential harm. Change is inevitable, however, and it can be overwhelming for both businesses and individuals. Are you ready to become an active participant in change? Join me on the latest episode of Insight Out where I sit down with Marché Pleshette. Marché is here to help equip us with the tools to turn uncertainty into opportunity through change and will share her vast knowledge in the world of leadership and communication. We will explore Marché‘s insights on how to embrace change and use it to our advantage. We’ll discuss the three zones of change: status quo, disruption, and adoption. We’ll also look at historical examples of how change has been used to innovate and level up.
Meet Marché Pleshette, Marché is a keynote speaker, facilitator, and leadership coach who has been at Franklin Covey as a consultant since 2008. She has taught many people how to infuse the philosophy of the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People into their life and business. She focuses on effective communication, leadership, professional change and transitions, employee engagement, and retention. She is the co-author of Franklin Covey’s newest book, Change: How to Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity.
Marché Pleshette was inspired to learn the competency of embracing change in order to innovate. She discovered that change is a process that requires support, understanding, and the ability to look around and see what is possible. She found that by understanding how to navigate change, leaders can help their team members to not be overwhelmed by it, but to use it as a tool to level up and become even more successful. With the right attitude, Marché realized that change can be embraced, rather than feared.
Now, let’s dive into the nitty gritty of change and how to use it to our advantage.
