Learn how to be an effective leader in times of change and stress.
Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.- Mohandas K. Gandhi
Change can be constant in today’s business environment. Managers may feel out of their depth in implementing change imposed by senior management while helping their employees cope and get on with their day to day work. However with the right strategies for change management in place, dealing with changes in the workplace can go from stressful, rocky rides to easy transitions.

Participants in this one-day workshop will become more effective in understanding change, and how it affects the workplace and learn ways to increase employee resiliency and acceptance of change through team building and problem solving.
Through ctc TrainCanada’s Applied Learning Approach participants will develop their own action strategies for dealing with and accepting changes in their organizations and return to work better prepared to take on the challenge of change.

The workshop will teach participants to:

  • Understand the change process & the human response to change
  • How to increase resiliency to change and that of a team
  • Understand how to use the Four-Room Apartment of change to help employees move through the four stages of change
  • See change as an opportunity for self-motivation and innovation
  • Develop strategies for dealing with and accepting organizational changes
  • Recognize that change is all about attitude and how to help others move in a positive and healthy direction
