Darwin said that it’s not the strongest that survive, it’s those that are most able to adapt to their changing environment. This still holds true and this session is designed to help you reflect on why change can be worrying for people and outline the knowledge and skills needed to help members of your team feel more equipped to cope with the constant change that many companies face nowadays. Rather than reacting to problems that come up as a change unfolds, successful teams develop the mind- set that means they proactively consider the strategies that will help with likely challenges - before they happen.
Being smart can produce ideas that help an organisation to take the lead with change. It’s our ability to co-operate that turns complex ideas into reality though. (Nothing of real value was built by one person without the help of another). This session will therefore help you to understand how you can support team members and how they can support each other when things get tough.
Objectives for the workshop:
- To consider the impact that change can have, when it’s not a change that people have personally chosen.
- To pinpoint the consequences of unsuccessfully engaging the “hearts and minds” of a team with any major change initiative deemed necessary.
- To explore the skills and personal qualities needed to lead people successfully through change.
- To reflect on how you will personally “walk the talk “as you lead your team through change.
