Change Management

 

Change management is a term that often invokes anxiety and fear from a manager’s perspective as it traditionally means moving away from the status quo to a new and hopefully better way of doing things.

At these times managers may have the difficult task of acting as the liaison between the top-brass decision makers and the rest of the organization – all the while attempting to maintain the balance necessary to continue to smoothly function in the midst of this change. Managers who have an understanding of the dynamic of change are better equipped to analyze the factors at play in their own particular circumstances. This one-day workshop will guide you through proven steps to build your own capacity for dealing with change from a manager’s perspective. It will then guide you through a proven series of steps and methodologies, including how to develop strategies and deliver a well thought-out and structured road-map for your employees.   

THE CHANGE MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP WILL:

  • Identify the steps of the entire change process 
  • Teach managers how to build and create a powerful case for implementing change in the organization 
  • Explore the human response to change while helping managers develop strong leadership for the change initiative
  • Help to create a cross-systems approach while building a solid understanding and commitment from middle and front-line managers
  • Look at how varying personalities and historical experiences dictate the pace at which people adopt to change 
  • Look at the template of the pyramid response to change and how to create an environment of support for those who resist and struggle
  • Assess your own skills and comfort with change management, including how to increase your resiliency to change while dealing with any anxiety and stress associated with the change

OUTCOMES

  • See change not as something to be feared and resisted but as an essential element of the global business world
  • Understand that adapting to change is not technical but attitudinal.  Change is not an intellectual issue but one that strikes at who you are.
  • Recognize that before we can embrace the way things will be, we must go through a process letting go of the way things used to be.
  • See change as an opportunity for self-motivation and innovation
  • Identify strategies for ensuring that “change” will be accepted and implemented in the workplace.
