This half-day management intensive workshop will dramatically improve your ability to lead your team or department through a change process. The workshop begins by covering the ‘golden rules’ or fundamental principles of effective change leadership and goes on to explore what it means to be an ‘authentic leader’ who can deal with change in a positive, honest and flexible manner. We review a number of tools for dealing with uncomfortable conversations that deal with the doubt, worry and fear experienced by many employees as they confront change and look at systems for structuring those conversations in a productive manner.
By attending this highly intensive half-day course you will:
This course is for all managers and leaders who wish to improve their ability to work with their teams in times of change.
Reviewing the qualities that are important in leading change in a positive and constructive way.
Based on the work of Kubler Ross the Transition Curve explores the stages that people go through when having to deal with a major change in their lives. For each step in the process (from ‘shock’ through to ‘acceptance’) we consider what is required to successfully move on to the next step in order to fully engage with the change process.
Appreciating the leadership behaviours that are most valued by employees as they go through the change process and becoming aware of the negative or ‘derailing’ behaviours that undermine trust and cause doubt and uncertainty.
Good Change Management involves having a structured approach to driving an initiative that starts with making people aware of why a change is necessary (i.e. explaining why the ‘status quo’ isn’t a viable option) and ends with rewarding people for actually implementing the change.
Tackling head on the “difficult” or “uncomfortable conversations” that are associated with leading employees through a change process in order to foster a positive atmosphere.
An effective change leader creates ‘networks’ and forums where people can openly discuss how the change is affecting them and both give and receive help and support. Here we consider the range of options that are available to generating this climate of mutual self help and carrying a spirit of empowerment and imitative.
Feedback is based upon peer review using Boulden assessment checklists. Completing the assessment checklists is not only valuable to the people involved in a given role play or case study, it also helps those completing them to gain an in-depth understanding of the building blocks that make up effective change leadership.
All of our workshops can be delivered as Remote Training via e-learning modules plus Zoom based virtual workshops. Please see our Virtual Training page for more information.
