Employees as Partners in Change

For employees and change targets.
Overview

Transition employees from ‘Victims’ to Partners in the Change Process.

Introduce the fundamental concepts of change management to employees impacted by change by focusing on their role in the change process. Employees will gain insight into their reactions to change and how to develop a personal approach to change that will reduce stress and increase the probability of successful organizational change.

The workshop addresses the emotional issues that can prevent employees from becoming partners in the change. It helps them to realize that those emotions and the resulting resistance to change are both natural and normal. The workshop also reinforces the role employees play – and the role their management plays – in dealing with the emotions, as well as how to become proactive in learning to live with constant change as a partner, not a victim.
