Change Management – Change and How to Deal With It

Human Resources

Change is something that excites people who love opportunities for growth, to see and learn about new things, or who like to shift the status quo. Some changes, however, are harder to adjust to and lead to expressions of resistance and anger. We can take concrete steps to make change more palatable by understanding people’s hesitation, enlisting the help of others, setting up plans, and managing stressors. These steps can also ensure that desired changes are implemented successfully.

In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to manage and cope with change and how to help those around you too.

At the end of this one-day workshop, participants will be able to::

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the value of succession planning for successful businesses.
  • Demonstrate expertise with the key elements of a succession plan.
  • Create and discuss aspects of a succession plan.
  • Discuss the elements of a succession plan in terms of roles, responsibility, function, scope, and evaluation.
