In today’s fast paced environment, change is something we all have to face. As leaders it is imperative that we understand the effects of change, how to engage people in change and how to support others through the change process. Change can be anything from minor alterations to workflow systems to major organisational restructures and downsizing. Many change efforts fail because the people leading them are not equipped with the skills to manage them successfully. If handled badly change can lead to negative outcomes such as confusion and wasted effort, low morale and decreases in productivity – handled well it can lead to lasting gains and increased job satisfaction. During the session, participants are asked to consider change at both a personal and strategic level and go on to learn how to enable those around them to embrace the change process and manage challenging situations more effectively.
