Introduction to Change Management

2 Day Course

Overview

This course introduces managers to a range of change management practices, techniques and tools that ensure your change is successful.

The training will provide you with the opportunity to explore your own change situations and also practice using a selection of practical change tools and techniques.

The effectiveness of any organisational change will largely depend on its initial communication. Often, managers are asked to communicate information to their teams that has not been fully explained or where the strategy is not fully understood. Occasionally, we may be asked to communicate change or instruction regarding something that we do not initially buy in to. It is key, therefore, that we address our own feelings and perceptions and plan the method and style of communication appropriately
