Managing Change

The rate of change is increasing. Being able to engage and motivate staff or stakeholders to cope with change is critical to any organisation's success.

By any objective measure, the amount of significant, often traumatic, change in business has grown tremendously over the past 2 decades. More and more organisations are being pushed to reduce costs, improve quality of products or services, identify new opportunities for growth and increase productivity.

Some major changes have brought about positive improvements, but all too often the improvements have been disappointing and staff are left feeling burned-out, scared or frustrated. 

Overview

When you begin to look at how to manage change, and importantly how to empower the people around you to  approach change positively, it can be useful to take a step back.

What is in fact within your and your immediate team's control?

Very often groups can spend far too much valuable time moaning and whining about things that they can in fact do very little about!   It can be very hard, when change is "put upon you", when resources are stretched and morale is low to look for the positive steps a team can take. However by working together and by using practical change management tools, it is possible to action plan a way forward to make the best of any given situation.

The Aim

The aim of this very practical course is to clarify the impact of change and therefore the different ways to deal positively with those changes.
