Collaboration NI event - Leading Change

Collaboration NI event - Leading Change
Tuesday, March 4, 2014 - 09:00 to 16:00
CO3 Offices, 34 Shaftesbury Square, Belfast, BT2 7DB

When leaders are faced with implementing change in the workplace they are looking at a tough job. Employees can become distracted, confused, angry, stressed-out, not to mention afraid for their jobs, all of which can result in lowered morale and decreased performance.

This one day workshop is designed to train managers on the essential skills needed to facilitate and lead through the change process. Managers learn how to better deal with resistance to change, how to implement the change management process effectively, and overcome the barriers to change.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the training course participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the issues involved in leading, implementing and managing change
  • Identify the types of change, while recognising barriers to them and developing strategies to overcome them
  • Understand the main components of planning change and the manager’s role in leading staff through it
  • Support and motivate people through change and uncertainty
  • Develop empathy with staff going through change
  • Create personal and group action plans to improve their ongoing change performance as initiators or managers of change.
  • Implement change whilst experiencing it themselves
