Leading and Managing Change
Leadership and Management.
About this course:
Change is something that provokes a range of responses - from immense enthusiasm, through to strong resistance.
Resistance may be commonplace when significant benefits are not obvious or fully understood.
However, in a rapidly changing world, the status quo is not an option.
So how do you manage the range of reactions to change; communicate the right messages at the right time; adapt your approach to gain buy-in from your team; and ultimately ensure that the change is a success? This workshop will explore the manager's approach to change, through a facilitated, discussion-based workshop, which encourages reflection and pragmatic action-planning.
You will also be introduced to a 'toolkit' of techniques to help you manage change professionally and constructively.
As a result of attending this session, you will:.
- Identify the range of attitudes and approaches to change that exist within your own team and overcome resistance.
- Know what it takes to be influential and inspirational to drive change and improvements.
- Develop an approach or strategy, tailored to your team?s unique needs, that will allow you to mitigate the 'people impact' of change.
- Deploy a range of tools and techniques to help manage and support individuals and teams through change, whilst also understanding those approaches that may not be appropriate.
Who should attend this course:
This course is designed for both professional services and academic staff who are leading their teams through times of change, or professionals who want to understand change and prepare themselves for when they lead change.
It is also suitable for project leaders.
