Managing People Through Change Course

Book this course

Course description

Within any organisation, significant change can be tough on people – so recognising its impact and enabling teams to overcome the challenges it presents is essential for any manager working in a changing environment. This can be achieved through effective change management training.

We start with the basic question – ‘what is change?’ – then show you how to establish clear goals and develop a solid strategy for your own change situation, including effective communication and evaluation techniques.

Is it right for me?

If you’re a manager, supervisor or team leader working on projects involving change or leading teams through change, this programme will help you approach the task in a more positive and efficient way. 

What will I get out of it?

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Establish clear goals for change programmes
  • Review the stages encountered during change programmes
  • Assess the state of change activities
  • Recognise the impact of change on individuals and organisations
  • Develop a strategy for dealing with resistance to change
  • Prioritise the activities of your team according to clear goals
  • Recognise success factors during change
  • Explore various communication activities required during change
  • Develop a communication plan for change programmes
  • Understand how to minimise the negative impact of change on your team

Our trainer was a great person and had a very lively style of delivery. They got us interested in the topic and engaged in the course.
