Change and innovation are an inevitable part of organisational life, perhaps through changes in legislation, or the need for continuous improvement, increasing efficiencies and staying ahead of the competition. But change in itself is often challenging; there may be many different elements involved, such as people, politics, organisational structure, resistance and conflict. Leaders and managers need to be able to effectively manage change - managing day to day operations whilst also planning for and anticipating the future, and also effectively lead and support others through the change process.
This interactive and informative session will provide you with insight from a psychological perspective regarding how individuals perceive and respond to change, and will also introduce a model of change; a framework to help you understand and manage change effectively within your own organisation through a focus on achieving buy-in and behavioural change.
