Are you frequently asked to lead teams or individuals through change? In the modern workplace, change never stops. While some may see “change management” as a solution for a specific challenge, it’s much more effective to view change as a constant force we must confidently confront every day of our lives. Developing skills and tools to use change as a constructive force is essential for anyone hoping to be an effective contributor in an ever-evolving economy.
In this interactive webinar, you will learn basic change management techniques, tools and skills that can be applied to your everyday professional interactions. As a participant, you are encouraged to bring examples of personal or organizational changes you’re currently facing to the session in order to practice using the techniques on your own real-life challenges.
Key objectives we will cover together:
Approaching New Ideas: “Accepting vs. Blocking” - Everyone has a choice when confronted with a new idea, to accept it and move forward or block it and try to prevent it from becoming reality. Understanding how and why we accept or block ideas is critical to coming to terms with change.
Working Through Uncertainty - Learn techniques to help you “think on your feet” when reacting to changing circumstances and unanticipated situations.
Change Planning Framework - Learn the phases of the Beckhard and Harris change model (Combat Dissatisfaction, Create a Vision, Communicate the Plan, Overcome Resistance) and practice applying them to your personal change challenge.
