Leading Workplace Change: A Five-Part Plan for Managing a Transition

Duration: 60 minutes

Great leaders are exceptionally good at handling change. That’s why they’re leaders. But many line managers, and most rank-and-file employees, absolutely hate it. There’s no mystery why. For most people, change means, “I trained myself to do X for years and now I have to start all over again.”

When your organization goes through any type of change initiative, success or failure will be determined by how well the leadership team helps people manage and even embrace change.




That sounds easy in concept, but in practice it’s brutally difficult to change people. And the reality is, the leadership at most companies isn’t nimble enough to pull it off. They get overwhelmed. And the competitor that CAN realign employee behavior with new company goals eats their lunch.

Don’t let it happen to you. This seminar is targeted to HR executives and line managers. It will describe what it takes to become an effective “change agent,” – that is, a leader with the ability to get “buy-in” from employees, and align their behavior with the new processes required to make your company successful. Do that and you’ll lead change rather than having it lead you.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Our speaker will explain how to:

  • Get employees to accept change, whether you chose it or it was thrust upon you
  • Identify in advance reactions to change and turn resistance into renewal
  • Implement a 5-step plan to lead your team through transitional times regardless of the challenge
  • Deal with the grief and low morale caused by change
  • Anticipate and handle setbacks during the transition from old to new
  • Celebrate the opportunities that change brings; there are many!
  • Maintain your own composure during the stress and chaos that often comes with change.
