Change Management

For many managers leading in a time of change, the most difficult areas do not come from change itself but from the behaviours of the staff involved in the actual process.

Staff can be obstructive to change for a variety of reasons: fear of the unknown, inability to cope, loss of a job, or fear of change itself. It is the manager’s adeptness to guide by participation that will eventually create an environment where those around them will have confidence, belief, and buy-in to the leader’s vision and what they are looking to achieve.

With ever-increasing customer expectations, businesses have to be flexible and ready for change. This course will help leaders manage change with impact by providing knowledge and techniques to effectively plan and implement successful transformation initiatives. It will provide clear insights on how to successfully motivate staff through company culture or organisational change.
