Overcoming Resistance: Inclusive Leadership Practices To Drive Change That Lasts
Agne Kelminskiene Gabriele Adomonyte

Are you familiar with organizational transformations that didn't meet expectations? Whether you've experienced one or are gearing up to lead such an initiative, join us as we share the journey of embracing agile from scratch. This talk sheds light on successful practices and provides insights from our missteps in navigating organizational change. Throughout the presentation, we'll explore various leadership stages, from self-awareness to team dynamics and relationship-building during the change. While you'll recognize the shift towards an agile organization - moving from functional to product teams, prioritizing quality, and learning from failure - the real insights emerge from handling resistance, tailored transparency, and the shift to proactive mindsets across the entire technology organization. We'll share examples of resistance encountered, including the lack of compelling reason for change, time constraints for learning, fear of losing authority, "us vs them" dynamics, and the entrenched "this is how it was always done" mindset. Real-world context and actionable leadership practices will show how to overcome these challenges for leaders navigating organizational transformations.
