Driving change during a downturn


I get a chance to sit down and chat with the infamous Rich Batchelor, who is a global Organizational Change Management guru and disruptor. We are always told to embrace change, but COVID-19 has definitely been more than most people have bargained for. Rich and I really get down to talk about how to navigate change, when it’s so disruptive. 


How did Covid-19 change you during the downturn? What actions did you take? Let me know in the comments below.


Rich has been successfully delivering change for over 25 years. He is a founding member of the Association of Change Management Professionals (ACMP) and founded the Toronto Change Days conference, a hands-on weekend of fun learning about change unlike any other change conference in North America!

He has a masters in change management and is certified in Project Management, Process improvement, Facilitation, HR, Coaching, Counseling and Psychotherapy. He is also a Certified Lego® Serious Play® Facilitator & Workshop Designer, VUCA Canvas accredited, Certified in facilitating organizations through uncertainty and complexity and an accredited emotional culture deck “elephant rider”!


In this episode:

  • The importance of change with people, not TO people
  • We talk about #epicfails
  • Difference between education and training
  • He introduces me to his friend, CARL
  • How to engage people in this virtual world
  • How to do stakeholder management virtually
  • How to have impact & influence
  • How it’s okay to not be okay
  • And so much more


Plus, I share what I’m currently curious about and it’s not quite what anyone expects!

Organizational change management is truly an essential business life skill that we should all master. It’ll help build your confidence and become your own secret sauce.
