Organizations change, and often at a breathtaking rate. Ongoing change can be threatening and stressful to employees and teams. Rumors, miscommunication, conflict, poor concentration, and low energy can all be unintended byproducts. But organizations and employees can get ahead of potential negative impacts and remain effective and healthy during change by learning techniques for managing it. In this interactive workshop, you'll build a toolkit of skills needed to help others process change. You'll learn about the dynamics of change and develop an understanding for the stages that people go through as they adapt. It will include practical steps, techniques, and philosophies that encourage creative reactions to change and enhance employee morale.
