Immunity to Change

Brian Fredrickson


Have you ever noticed a gap between a person or organization’s intention to change, and their ability to actually make it happen?  This session will provide a brief overview of a process developed by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey to navigate this gap and address hidden competing commitments that might be making actual changes so difficult.

Watch the recording below!

Learning Objectives

  • Identify a strategy to help bridge the gap between the intention to change and the actions taken to make it happen.
  • Understand how immunity mapping, which exposes competing commitments and assumptions, can unlock the ability to take on new behaviors that better align with effective leadership.
