Overview : Change is normal, natural, and inevitable. This seminar focuses on understanding the positive and negative ways people respond to change; how to move successfully through the common stages of change; how to develop resilience when confronted with undesirable change; and how to coach employees during times of change.
Why should you attend:
During these times of corporate mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, attempting to accomplish more with fewer resources, downsizing, and aggressive competition in the marketplace, having a workforce that adapts effectively to organizational change is critical. When management and human resource professionals have an understanding of how to lead their employees through change well, it can set the stage for a successful transition. In this webinar, we will discuss the stages of change, how to manage our own reticence, fears and anxieties, and how to fruitfully guide employees through a new work experience. We will examine styles of change leadership, as well as the causes of resistance to change. We will review how to set the stage for change, the importance of employee involvement and buy in, how to hear employees' concerns, and how to respond supportively.
Areas Covered in the Session: After participating in this seminar, managers will be better able to:
Identify the normal stages of response to change
Practice strategies to develop resilience in themselves and their employees
Effectively supervise employees who are having difficulty with organizational change
