On 26th February 2020, we have a full day training course on Managing Change facilitated by Juliette Yardley.

The day will be practical and hands on as always and will explore the change process from a psychological perspective. How, and what does change look like, the impact it has on the people and culture and why it can be a struggle to ‘get people onboard’. You will develop a better understanding of change management and gain the skills needed to think and behave differently.

The ability to manage your way through change can be a challenge, many struggle to gain ‘buy in’ to new ideas and this is not at all unusual, in fact in can almost be expected. As human beings we like routine and enjoy our comfort zones. We often don’t sit back to reflect on how change impacts on us and our team, how it makes us feel and more importantly, behave.

As a manager, how do you deal with new business strategies, systems, people and processes that we you expected to roll out? It’s a challenge. Managing yourself and your team through change can carry a lot of tension. This workshop will provide you with the tools to improve your change management skills and gain confidence in tackling the changes ahead of you.

  • What change means to us, the fear factor and risk
  • The transitional model of change, the journey and its impact
  • Comfort zones and safety nets
  • Growth mind-set and a positive psychology approach
  • An emotional intelligent approach to change
