It’s important to understand the psychology of change in order to effectively manage it. Change occurs at different levels; societal, organizational and personal. It has several stages of transition; which is why we often refer to change as a “journey.” Individuals will pass through each phase in order to move forward and will move on at their own pace. Everyone deals with change differently. That’s why organizational change is a big deal. There are feelings of loss, grief and anger for staff and a responsibility for leadership to lead their people through the journey. As a leader you will need to prepare and orchestrate your company’s change journey to ensure its successful execution.
This highly interactive workshop uses a combination of lecture, discussion and team formats to help prepare you to lead change in your department or organization. We use a variety of case study examples from many different organizations as well as well as examples of your own change initiatives to teach you how to lead change. You will have an opportunity to plan and manage “real” change issues and develop corrective actions to better manage them.
