Resistance to Change Isn’t What You Think It Is with Jessica Carroll

Sep 1, 2023 | Digital Transformation, Hot Mess Hotline Podcast

Resistance to change doesn’t always show up in your team like you think it does. Jessica Carroll is an executive who has driven multiple digital transformations as a CIO and Chief Customer Experience Officer. The same lessons that apply to “going to the cloud” also apply to digital transformation and how to use AI in 2023. In this episode we discuss how it’s easy for the leader to think their teammates are resisting, but they really might just need more information; think about the problem from a different perspective; or need to wrap their head around the project in a way that’s different from you.

Listen in to this episode where Jessica describes how you can move your team from needing more information to action.
