Dealing Effectively with Change

Change is not just about introducing a new process or information system.  It is more than visioning, mission statements, and employee meetings.  Change is about individual behavior and identifying the win-win that encourages people to let go of the “old” and embrace the “new” so that the total organization can move in a different direction.  

People do not change because they are told that they need to do it, nor do they change because they hear that the company is facing financial issues.  People change when they realize that it is to their own personal benefit to alter their behavior.  To effectively change our own behaviors, we must be well-grounded and self-aware.  

This series of modules, adaptable to your needs and to your company’s culture, guides individuals through a process that links them with the realities of what is going on around them, why there is a need for change, and how that need impacts them personally.  Well-thought-out exercises provide personal insights for self-discovery and self-awareness, links the individual to the challenges faced by the company, and emphasizes the  importance of change at the individual level in order to move the organization forward.  

The standard program is in three modules:  

(1) Preparing for Change, covering normal individual reactions to change,
resistance as a natural force that must be overcome, and the benefits of 
being flexible and adaptable in the workplace ; 

(2) Managing Your Future, coaching the individual through the significant 
decision points and choices that are required to deliver the best 
performance in the workplace or to accept the business decisions that 
must be made for the company’s best interests; and 

(3) Leading People During Change, providing concepts, applications and 
insights to the organization’s managers so that they can provide the 
needed support to their own people and can voice their own confidence in 
the direction of the company.    

This program was developed so that it is adaptable to the needs of the organization or the individuals involved by increasing/decreasing the number of modules and adjusting the content of each segment of the program to reach the organization's goal in offering the program to its colleagues.
