Cognitive biases in change management

Uncover the levers and obstacles to lead your teams and achieve your goals in all your projects.


Leaders run projects by managing team work, but the goals and the means to achieve the goals might change from one project to another.
To achieve new goals, collaborators rely on their expertise, while continuously learning new methods and how to use new tools according to project requirements.
As a consequence, team leaders sometimes face opposing challenges: managing changes by facilitating the development of collaborators' skills and, at the same time, promoting their skills and expertise to provide the best services.

Changes across projects foster conditions that trigger cognitive biases, which prevent behavioral adaptation and successful change management.
Advances in cognitive psychology and neuroscience unravel the cognitive biases that impact the capacity to adapt behaviors and how the brain meets these cognitive challenges.
These findings provide brain-friendly techniques to circumvent cognitive baises in different phases of a project.

In this conference, I will present the levers and obstacles to manage changes successfully.
I will unfold the cognitive biases that impact change management and the techniques that facilitate the development of collaborators' skills.
