In today’s workplace, employees are experiencing tremendous changes in organizational strategies, in the way work gets done, and in the way people work together. These changes present new demands and challenges for every individual in the organization. Without personal strategies for dealing productively with change, employees can become overwhelmed and communication can break down. This module provides an effective approach to navigating change that people in any organization can use. Participants will explore skills that help them deal with change both individually and interpersonally, and they will develop strategies to deal effectively with a change that’s difficult for them. Other topics covered include:
- Understanding the challenges of the changes being experienced at work
- Describing common responses to change
- Examining and learning from their behavior during changes faced in the past
- Assessing and understanding the reasons for change
- Working effectively and influencing others who resist change
- Taking positive actions to make change successful, both individually and with others
