Change Management Training
Is your organization changing rapidly?
Successful change requires flexibility, energy, creativity, and the commitment of everyone involved. How can you be sure this will happen? Training is a key factor in how smoothly any transition goes. People might feel threatened, be worried about losing competency, or be overwhelmed by the whole process. There are ways to help people overcome these hurdles and deal with unavoidable change more effectively.
Why do some people struggle so much?
You might have noticed certain people in your group have a harder time adjusting to the inevitable ups and downs in any organization. Is there a way to make change easier for them? The answer is "Yes." Frequently, people are unaware of how much stress they're under as their organization reforms. They're also unable to say exactly what makes change so difficult for them. We use online psychological assessments, primarily the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, to get a picture of each individual on your team. Based on that information, we can structure a training program that makes sense for your group. Each person reacts differently to shifts. Yet without change, there can be no breakthroughs.
Learn how to manage organizational transitions
Many change models show logical steps, followed in sequence. Life is rarely that neat or orderly. People react differently to each step in the process. You can learn to see these difficulties before they erupt into full-blown crises. Most people want two things during organizational transitions: to be included in the process and to be kept informed. But how do you do it? You need concrete, factual information about your team members' preferred styles to be effective. Knowing how your people make decisions, take in information, and interact with each other is crucial to making change go smoothly.
Test, then train
Without concrete, specific information about your group, your efforts at making change happen will undoubtedly be more difficult. Instead of guessing, we can test your team to get insights into how your group functions. Based on the results, we can develop training sessions that address your group members' styles and preferences. With knowledge, you can better understand how your group is responding to change and make good decisions on how to handle change in the future.
Train your group on-site
The best way to help your group to work together better is through a live training session. You can have your training tailored to your specific circumstances. Using the information from the Myers-Briggs®, your on site training can include those areas which are particularly hard for your group. Often, having an outside expert come in to discuss the tough issues makes it easier on all. People are less defensive, feel less of a need to justify themselves, and are more open to hearing suggestions. It shows management is proactive in improving the workplace. Recognizing a need and getting help shows concern, foresight, and an interest in the staff. Your training sessions will be a combination of lecture and practical exercises to make the lessons come alive. Mastering change is a skill; any skill must be practiced to be mastered.
