80% of change management programmes fail! Most of these failures are attributable to mis-management of the people being required to change. Except for the change experts, everyone is so scared of the negative effects of change on themselves. How much change we have or whether change is good or bad for us is irrelevant; far more important is how we manage change, how we deal with and cope with change. Good change management needs key people within your organisation to develop the skill and insight that will make a difference to the way things happen around them.

In order to manage change in others you need first to examine how you got to be who you are, define your communication resources and investigate your personal beliefs and values. This change management course covers the effect of rules, assumptions, patterns, the roles people play and conflicting ways of thinking and perceiving. It includes advanced interpersonal skills for greater insight into yourself and others. Our change management training deals head on with the challenge of change. You will create a personal leadership strategy that will motivate, persuade and inspire those around you.


By the end of this course, through the use of practical and ‘life-like’ activities, group work, debate, guided discussion and case studies, delegates should be able to demonstrate of solid understanding of the following:

  • Why is the change necessary in your organisation and what are the implications for your team and for you.
  • Who will be affected by the change and the impact of change on individuals and teams.
  • The nature and meaning of change, including different types of organisational change.
  • Organisational and team culture and politics and how this influences change.
  • Practical tools to help individuals and teams navigate a successful path through change.
  • Identify personal strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & threats to assist individuals and teams through the change process.
  • Planning for change:- aims & objectives, change tactics, style of change needed, roles [leaders, sponsors, change agents].
  • Effectively communicating change [part of the problem is poorly communicated change!].
  • Implementing successful change management strategies for handling resistance and gaining commitment.
  • Monitoring and reviewing the change process, overcoming obstacles, blockages and U-turns.
