Surviving change: essential skills for managers
Seventy percent of change programmes fail. Successful change leaders are able to adapt to changing circumstances and to bring their teams with them. This requires sound judgement, decision-making skills in an uncertain environment, personal resilience and an ability to understand and support others at different stages of change.
This one-day workshop is for managers undergoing and supporting staff through change programmes. The content explores the merits of different approaches to implementing change and an understanding of the role and skills of an effective change agent. The workshop allows delegates to consider their own impact and emotions, and equips them the tools needed to facilitate and implement change.
Recent delegates rated the event “very good” or “excellent”.
