Often we find that too much emphasis on change can lead to a loss of continuity within an organisation. When all change is treated in the same way, from a design perspective, we often confuse the desired outcome of change with the issue. This approach, compounded by the insufficient use of robust measurements to track readiness, progress and impact, can lead to change fatigue and the failure of change initiatives. So, how do we step into the change lead role with clarity, and confidently support sustainable implementation of change?
Change is often perceived as extremely stressful and as such, resistance is a major obstacle to successful implementation of change plans. Therefore the change management role not only includes the complex task of addressing change but also communicating in a way that improves the way change is perceived; it alleviates resistance and encourages buy-in for change projects. Participants of Introduction to Change Management will learn how to articulate and work with the relationships between stability and change, and between the needs of the individual and those of the organisation.
Through a paradigm shift to complexity and an understanding of the rhythm and nature of the organisation, participants will discover how to analyse a change within their own organisations and respond to the unique nature of each change.
