Resiliency: Successfully Navigating the Waves of Change
How do you view change?
An Opportunity? A Threat?
Everyone looks at change differently. Some view it as positive and necessary; others view it as a problem. A change can be any business, career-related or personal experience requiring a significant change in a person's performance or attitude and the events and feelings he or she experiences during the change process.This course will help participants identify more concretely with the concepts of change and provide tools for developing resiliency for managing the continuous changes that occur on a daily basis in today's modern business culture.
Managing in Chaotic Times
Things aren't what they used to be. Sound familiar. In every age people say the same thing as they face the continual processes of change. New ideas and new technologies replace established ones. There is initial resistance but if the new ideas and technologies are better than the old ones, then eventually the old ones are replaced by the new.
What's different today is not only the change process but stems from the introductions of new technologies, markets or competitors and is occurring simultaneously; which creates a time of chaos.
For this reason Resiliency: Successfully Navigating the Waves of Change provides necessary skills needed by leaders and managers.
Reactions to Change
People react to change and they resist it; they rarely ignore it. It could be caused by an organizational or career change, whether planned or not, or occurring in an immediate work group, family or management style. Generally people will not change something important until compelled to change by circumstances. When people see change being imposed on them suspicion and anxiety are common; even when the changes are beneficial, logical and often inevitable.
Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:
- State the elements that drive organizations to change
- Identify the stages that individuals experience during the change process
- Develop strategies to develop the resiliency needed to effectively manage themselves and others through continuous changes.
The Resiliency Hourglass Model is presented and participants are shown how these components can be used as tools to effectively manage all the aspects of change and how they can be applied in everyday business situations.
