How to Become a Credible Leader of Change: An Inspiring Conversation with Nancy Murphy, CEO CSR Communications

Great conversation with Nancy Murphy about how leaders can truly drive change and influence their organizations. Some of the takeaways:

  • Empathy is one of the best tools to influence and instead of resisting, trying to see the world through others eyes and having compassion could help drive change faster
  • People resistance to change could be used creatively to make it happen. It is an energy which should be channeled in the right way.
  • Organizations need to nurture intrapreneurs which are the hidden soldiers who can make change happen.
  • For a change to be a success, we need to move away from thinking that making a big announcement would make it happen. We need to be committed to the vision of it but flexible to the approach to make it happen.
  • We don’t need a title to lead. We can influence and drive positive change wherever we are in the organization.

The Weekly Leadership Experience

Leading & Influencing Change

It’s no secret that change is difficult. Everyone wants change, no one wants TO change, and even fewer people want to LEAD change. If that’s not enough, most change is met with resistance, obstacles, buried artifacts, and a leader’s own challenges with influence.

So how do we overcome these challenges and effectively lead and influence change?

Nancy Murphy shares how we can uncover the artifacts that may be impeding change, how we can draw on the four types of influence, and how to address resistance to change efforts.

The Secret to Turning Your Employees into Passionate Intrapreneurs

When an organization undergoes change, some team members are on board, some fear the worst, and others struggle with knowing how to proceed. “Intrapreneurs” help advocate and usher in change within an organization – bridging together different concerns, uniting those resistant to change, and forging a path forward. While entrepreneurs disrupt the status quo to create their own business venture, intrapreneurs choose to disrupt from within an existing organization.

Nancy Murphy helps support these intrapreneurs as the founder and president of CSR Communications. This week she shares with Marie Mae Founder and CEO Jillian Ryan the 3 types of resistance to change, how to overcome them, and her top tips for using your platform for good in sustainable ways.
