Effective Change Management

Venue: Alpa City Suites
Hernan Cortes corner F. Cabahug Street, Mandaue City, Cebu

Category: Behavioral Management Program

There are few guarantees in the workplace today, but change is one of them. “Just like it’s always been” is quickly becoming a phrase of the past, often replaced by something such as, “We’ve streamlined the process.” And so, kicking, screaming, and complaining, our workforce reluctantly adapts; only to find itself being faced with change once again. This course discusses the need for change, available change strategies, how to generate buy-in to those changes, and more.

OBJECTIVES
At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
  • Describe ways of reacting to change, but that we must start from where we are.
  • See change not as something to be feared and resisted but as an essential element of the world to be accepted.
  • ŸUnderstand that adapting to change is not technical but attitudinal. Change is not an intellectual issue but one that strikes at who you are.
  • ŸRecognize that before we can embrace the way things will be, we must go through a process of grieving, and of letting go of the way things used to be.
  • ŸSee change as an opportunity for self-motivation and innovation.
  • ŸIdentify strategies for helping change be accepted and implemented in the workplace.
  • ŸThe following outline highlights some of the course’s key learning points. As part of your training program, we will modify content as needed to meet your business objectives. Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of participant materials prior to the session(s).
COURSE OUTLINE
Change: What It Is, Why We Do It, and Why Most People Don’t Like It

Through examining classic change management models, this introductory discussion explores the external and internal forces that drive change in an organization, why it’s critical to adapt and adopt implemented changes, and despite all of that, why most people still don’t like change.

Wheels in Motion: The Change Cycle

During this segment, we will explore the three phases of Kotter’s 8-Step Change Model
through lecture and small group work.

And I Was…: The Human Reaction to Change

This portion of the program looks at interpretation of the human response to change through lecture and small group work. We will also discuss how different people react to change and how employees, middle management, and upper management are affected by change.

How Do I (Oops, I Mean We) Tell (or Rather, Sell) Them?: Ways to Involve Stakeholders to Drive and Communicate Change

How change is communicated can often affect its acceptance. This portion of the training examines the pitfalls of communicating change and strategies for setting the stage for effective buy in.

Handling It All: Strategies for Dealing with Change

During this discussion we will look at five strategies that participants can use to deal with change and to manage stress and anger.

Moving Right Along: Putting Together a Plan

At the end of the program, participants will create a plan for handling current or future changes.
At the program’s conclusion, participants will have an understanding of the process of change, how they can be a positive force in driving that change, and best practices for implementing change in an organization.

Target Audience:

Anyone who is working in an office environment and anyone who is involved & responsible for any quality functions or responsibilities within an organization (e.g. managers, supervisors, staff, etc) may attend. There are no prerequisites for this course.

Approach & Duration:
Interactive, Seminar Style Training

We use an interactive, seminar style training approach in order to maximize learning and retention. No sitting in dark rooms staring at PowerPoint slides while an instructor drones on. No sitting in big hotel ballrooms, lost in a large group with little or no opportunity to ask questions or to network with other quality managers and auditors.

With our class, we can take as much time as we need to answer your questions and discuss your real world auditing issues. Plus, along with a real Exercise, our discussions are interspersed with exercises that are fun as well as a great learning experience.

As the trainer comes with more than thirty years of real-life corporate experience, the methodology will involve the following:
  • ŸIndividual Assessments
  • ŸUse of participant manual/worksheets
  • ŸUse of a combination of presentation and group activities
  • ŸStory telling of real-life situations
  • ŸInteractive group discussions
  • Challenging the thinking of participants
  • ŸProviding input to participants’ real-life situations

Case Studies- Several short case studies will be pre-circulated for participants to read and undertake some directed initial analysis. These will be used to illustrate data analysis techniques and as a basis for group discussions.
