About this webinar

When organisations go through a lot of change, people must often adjust to new processes, maybe new people, and even new premises.

Many of us are naturally reluctant to cope with too much at once yet when things change around us, we can be put under pressure to alter the way we think and the way we do things.

Whilst it seems understandable that this might cause stress it doesn’t have to be a difficult process.

People are complicated and yet at times when we put them under pressure it is often simpler to predict what will cause them to struggle.

My experience both as an expert in Stress and a Consultant used to designing strategy for managing cultural change, is that there are fundamental rules which, if followed, ensure the process becomes not only possible but positively received. This involves following a set of steps.

The starting point is often about keeping things simple rather than over-complicating them. That way, it is possible to implement initiatives and keep people on board.

This is what you get
for your investment:

  1. To define ‘change’ and explore its impact on people. We all think we’ve experienced change but knowing what causes anxiety and avoiding that is an easier way to keep the process on track. I will cover some top tips here for getting people ‘on board’ and avoiding the common issues of resistance to change, and unreasonable levels of stress. These are proven strategies that really work!
  2. I then describe a model called ‘A to C’. This helps break down the change process into simpler, shorter steps. Over-complicated processes when people are struggling to focus, can lose momentum or cause resistance. So, understanding what to avoid doing as much as what to do, is essential! This model avoids that. Otherwise, resistance to change slows progress and costs business time, effort, and money.
  3. I will talk about a personality characteristic that differentiates those people who are likely to cope well with change from those who will need more support. This way you can focus your efforts and feel fore-warned. We all welcome control in life, but one personality type thrives on it more than others.

This webinar gives you the tools to
effectively and professionally lead people
to better handle Change.
