Change Management For Managers

Request more details:

Most organisations have been through a change in the recent past. However, the change strategy is just the start – what happens next is what determines the success of the change. In many situations, employees need help to adopt the new habits and engage with the change process. Managers who are tasked to implement the change can feel overwhelmed. They neglect the simple but focused interventions that may help them quickly achieve their goals. This workshop presents some techniques to help the managers to create a culture and support system to encourage collaboration, ownership and engagement. It encourages the managers who attend to learn from each other and share experiences.
