"Change Management as a Career Calling"

There are two aspects to how most change management practitioners relate to the profession.

One concerns the length of time they see themselves engaging in this kind of work; the other deals with the mindsets they apply when fulfilling their role.

They can view themselves as involved in part-time duties, short-term assignments, full-time employment, or a lifelong career.

Regardless of the duration, they can approach change management as employment (it’s a job with deliverables to create and tasks to complete, etc.) or as a calling (the work is compelling in a deeply personal way).

Daryl’s talk will explore the implications for practitioners who are curious about (or have already recognized) change management as their career choice and calling.

Daryl will be addressing three questions:

  • What does it mean for this profession to be a career calling-how do you know it's right for you?
  • What are the requirements - what are you signing up for?
  • What are the ongoing responsibilities — what comes with the territory that you can never stop attending to?
