Getting on board with change : A Change Management workshop

Organisational change is often something that is imposed by necessity, rather than implemented voluntarily. It is very often done without the time or resources for proper consultation. That means that while the people who are charged with change management may feel positive about the change, there is an incorrect assumption that others will too. Change is often, unintentionally, communicated with little or no empathy for those it affects.

Up to 80% of your staff will be at risk from an ambivalent or negative reaction to change, such as absenteeism, unexpected or unwanted staff turnover and reduced productivity – at exactly the time when your business needs to maintain stability. Even the smallest minority demonstrating negative feelings, can be truly toxic to the rest of the team.

This workshop addresses the ‘human factors’ of Change Management, rather than the many text book theories of planning, strategy and logistics.

The workshop focuses on:

  • The Coping Cycle of Change
    • Change as a process of bereavement (even when the change is positive)
    • Negative emotions and their impact on individuals and teams during change
  • The impact of negative emotion on performance
  • The pace of change – how people respond differently
  • Strategies for managing negative emotions
  • Communication strategies– securing support and maintaining team cohesion

Change, however positive, still evokes anxiety. Give your management team the skills they need to nip negativity in the bud and champion change.
