Managing Change in Crisis

April 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Managing change is a constant in business, but in these times, we are faced with more and faster changes with no way to predict what will happen from day to day. Pervasive uncertainty kills productivity and morale. Successful change management results from a combination of effective leadership, clear and targeted communication, team building, emotional intelligence and appropriate levels of transparency. Leaders need to create for employees as much safety and predictability as they can, as well as some level of perceived control in their lives. The practical tools and approaches shared in this webinar are useful all the time, and especially valuable during this pandemic and attendees will leave with immediately applicable strategies.
This course is also available through the Workforce Training grant.

Barbra Batshalom

Sustainable Performance Institute, Founder

Barbra has been a leader in the green building movement since 1998 when she left 12 years of traditional architecture practice to found The Green Roundtable (GRT) a nonprofit whose mission was making green building mainstream. GRT was the USGBC’s Affiliate in MA for 9 years and supported the growth of the LEED program. 

Sustainable Performance Institute (SPI), originally a program of GRT, focuses on high-level interventions to institutionalize sustainability at the organizational level in processes, systems and policies nationally, working with companies to implement change management strategies and achieve measurable improvements in performance and profitability across their portfolios. SPI’s SMARTsustainability ™ program provides a framework to evaluate the capability of A/E/C firms to deliver consistent, high quality sustainability services and was adopted by HUD for affordable housing developers. 

SPI’s transformative workshop programs have been delivered to hundreds of organizations nation-wide to help raise the bar on professional practice in the industry. Barbra is an adjunct professor teaching Sustainable Real Estate Development in Brandeis University’s International Business School. She has served on numerous boards, government task forces and committees to help develop public and corporate policies for sustainability and teaches courses on change management for sustainability for professionals around the world. 

Her work focuses on the intersection of systems, processes and culture. With a diverse background of fine arts, social psychology and 20+ years in architecture and sustainability consulting, she brings a variety of skills to her work and a unique perspective engaging the human dynamics of decision-making and creative collaboration to technical work.
