How to Manage Change in the Workplace
Workplace change happens at a dizzying rate.
Shockingly 70% of all change efforts in organizations fail! Change efforts can range from reorganizations, to new informational or software systems to new policies and task or project management processes. Failure of these organizational efforts routinely equates to millions of dollars down the drain.
Why do change efforts fail? Most leaders don’t understand how to manage and shepherd change effectively as it cascades down through the organization. Part of this failure is ignorance in how to be effective in the different “roles” surround organizational change.
What does the Managing Workplace Change training offer? The best change management thinking of the day with an opportunity for participants to apply it to their current change initiatives. The most important model for understanding how to lead change effectively is presented in this training.
By the end of the workshop, participants will:
- Understand the nature of change so leaders and change agents can be more effective in their change “roles”.
- Understand how leadership behaviors around change are critical to change management success so leaders can demonstrate behaviors that will increase the probability for change to succeed.
- Understand peer’s challenges, insights and concerns regarding upcoming workplace change to avoid getting “stuck”
- Understand the connection between emotional intelligence and change management. Employees don’t check their emotions at the door! Change is emotional and how you “react” to it as a leader sets the stage for followers.
- Learn best practice change management to increase the likelihood of change sticking!
