Change Management Training Program

Your change management training course

Employees often fear change. When they hear about the change management plan, they wonder “How will it affect me? If it's communicated well, your employees can embrace change. If it's communicated poorly, forget it. Change management training courses are critical to keep organisations ahead. Hearing the words “Change Management” in the workplace is often met by resistance from employees. The fear of the unknown and lack of experience in dealing with change can lead to chaos and dysfunctional teams. It's critical to have an effective change management plan and that your key people know how to nurture an environment that will help your people embrace change in your workplace. Effective change management courses and processes will also help you retain your mission critical people during times of uncertainty

How well does your management team manage change, Answer Yes or No to the following statements

  1. We communicate often with stakeholders to keep them informed of how the change is being implemented

  6. We take time to understand the people who resist change and help them become more positive about the change
  7. We involve as many people as possible in the change process
  8. We delegate decisions and give authority to employees during the change process
  9. We choose Change Agents that will model the positive differences of the change
  10. We develop flexible systems to implement change which can be easily modified to accommodate any unplanned situations
  11. We provide coaching and training to employees so that they understand the change
  12. We set behavioural managerial behavioural metrics to ensure the change isn't incorrectly perceived by stakeholders
  13. We walk the talk and exude confidence that the change is a positive step for the organisation and its stakeholders

Organisations that are ready to implement change should have answered Yes to at least 8 of the above statements

Your Change Management training program is custom designed to fit with your change management processes. You can choose a trainer who has worked in a large organisation that has undergone a major change so participants will understand the antecedents and the precedents of change from a practical perspective. Participants will discover that their initial fears are rational and it's just a part of the psychology of how humans react to change. Participants will understand that it's also part of the human psychology; over time to reduce their fears about change and those they may soon embrace the change.
