Change is an ever-present and essential part of life, and the University a constantly evolving organisation. While this can make it a dynamic and vibrant place to work, change can present challenges for individuals and groups, and needs to be expertly managed if we are to realise the benefits of making changes at any scale.
This half day workshop highlights the value of effective change management and provides you with tools to take away and use in your management practice.
Led by organisational change experts, this workshop will provide understanding of the process of change and the key principles, stages and tools involved in effective change management.
You will learn the value of creating engagement with, and buy in for, your vision (even if it is someone else’s change vision you are implementing), how to build a successful communication strategy and how to trouble shoot common challenges.
After the session, peer partnerships will coach and support each other whilst managing any practical changes they are making.
During the session you will explore:
- the applied principles of change management
- key stages involved – including the transition process for changing behaviour & culture
- how to communicate and influence change by using behavioural insights
This course is 1 x 3.5 hour session. There is required pre-work, including e-learning to check your understanding of change essentials and work with colleagues after the sessions. You must be able to commit to all elements.
