Embracing Change

If there's one thing all organizations in today's economy have in common, it's that they are undergoing change. But change can only be effective if the employees impacting your bottom line embrace it. Their ability to adapt will determine the competitiveness and success of your company. This course focuses on the role of individual performers in implementing change in the workplace. Participants discover their Change IQ, learn about the phases of change that many people experience and are introduced to best practices that will enable them to tackle and overcome the new business challenges of today and tomorrow.
Do You Face Any of These Issues?
  • Are employees in your company unreceptive to change?
  • Does resistance to change decrease the productivity of individuals and teams?
  • Are changes in the workplace or economy affecting the morale of your workforce?
Learning Objectives
At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:
  • Commit to and take ownership of change.
  • Effectively recognize change, explore change, and overcome personal resistance to change.
  • Minimize the negative impact of not adapting to change on individuals, teams, and the company.
  • Demonstrate an embracing change mind-set that influences others to embrace company changes.
