Course Description

Change has become an ever-present and important part of business today. Organisations that fail to change, find it increasingly difficult to compete and survive in today's marketplace. But how do you keep team members focused on performance with all the distractions caused by change initiatives? How do team leaders and managers deal with the emotions, fear and anxiety that come with change?

Supporting Change provides the tools that team leaders and managers need to understand and interpret change - in order to manage their team more successfully through the change. By working to support change while addressing the team's comfort level with that change, the team leader/manager can more effectively facilitate acceptance of a new way of doing things.

Supporting Change helps team leaders and managers learn to understand and interpret change. By understanding it, team leaders and managers can more clearly communicate change to their team. This clear communication helps to reduce misunderstanding and anxiety. It also helps the change initiative gain acceptance more quickly – minimising lost productivity and decreased performance.

Team leaders and managers leave with implementation tools, troubleshooting guides and additional resources to help them apply the skills they have learned on the job.

The Supporting Change workshop includes the following:
• Understanding the Three Phases of Change
• Reactions to Change
• Strategies for Supporting Change
• Dealing with Rumours of Change
• Reactions to Organisational Changes
• Communicating Change
• The Team Leader / Manager's Role in Supporting Change
• Troubleshooting Guide
Throughout the workshop, team leaders and managers will review video presentations and case studies, participate in group discussions, practice new skills, and receive immediate feedback.


Learners will be able to:
• Understand and interpret change and the impact on their team members
• View change and the anxiety that it can cause team members as natural and inevitable
• Assist team members as they adjust to change
• Involve team members in the process of change
• Help team members to make the required changes
