If the absence of change can mean death to the future of a company, the presence of tumultuous and relentless change can lead to organisational disintegration. This course helps executives, managers and change leaders to avoid both options by knowing how to effectively lead change in an organisation.
Building the skills of change leadership will have a huge impact on company results. Studies show that most major change initiatives (productivity, quality, reengineering, etc) achieve only about 20 percent of their intended impact, can dampen instead of improving morale and often fail to achieve major improvement.
This course provides a roadmap to guide leaders and staff along the often treacherous path toward the goal of change. It not only looks at the principles and concepts but also at implementation. It is practical and allows participants to adapt materials to their own situation.
Participants will learn how to design change initiatives, involve others in the process, deal with resistance, and build employee commitment to new ideas or methods. The competencies of the change leader include both the skills of designing and introducing change and the skills of guiding others successfully through it.
This course is based on the ground-breaking work of Jeffrey and Linda Russell as standardised by the American Society for Training and Development and delivered in Ireland and the UK by the Centre for Creative Change.
It will be ideal for companies about to introduce major changes in the business – new processes, working practices, equipment, procedures or introducing new systems for quality control, management practice, safety, etc.
