About this course

This course is similar in content to the Dealing with change for managers and supervisors course, but looks at change from the perspective of its effect on you and also Managers’ roles in change management.

This course focuses on understanding change in the context of the University strategy. The session is based on change and people and will explore:

  • the causes of change and the change curve
  • the effects of change on behaviour and how change is communicated well and sometimes less well in organisations
  • change and how it comes about in your area of the University
  • what you might need to do to prepare for change
  • how you might handle the effects of change through engaging with your manager or supervisor through regular and appropriate communication

In addition, key areas of University strategy will be outlined, and links will be made to the Effective Behaviours Framework, as well as an indication of further resources that you may find useful in the Development Toolkit and Change Toolkit.

Intended learning outcomes

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • describe how change occurs
  • identify how you can best prepare yourself for managing yourself through change
  • apply skills useful in change management from the position of understanding yourself and others
  • manage your preparation for and handling of a change
  • recall where to access other useful resources to support you

Effective Behaviours Framework

The Effective Behaviours Framework (EBF) has nine key behavioural areas. This course will help you to develop skills and knowledge related to the EBF behavioural groups highlighted below:

  • Managing self and personal skills
  • Embracing change
  • Working together

Please note that attending the course does not provide evidence of achieving these behaviours; you will need to demonstrate them by applying your skills and knowledge.
