Participants will: • Learn the difference between change and transition and become familiar with the intellectual and emotional components of change • Learn about paradigms and how they can inhibit the implementation of change • Be able to define the characteristics of individuals who are exceptionally adaptable to change • Learn how behavior styles can support or derail individuals during various stages of the change process • Understand why people are resistant to change and what strategies can be utilized to reduce that resistance • Be able to describe strategies for minimizing the impact of change on the organization Topics covered include: • The only thing constant is change: why we can’t just keep doing it the way we’re doing it now • The change process: the three phases of change, what you can expect, and what you won’t know • Paradigms: how they can help and how they can hurt; thinking outside the box • Behavioral styles and change: why the change process isn’t the same for everyone • Resistance to change: why it occurs, and strategies for handling resistance • Organizational culture: what is it, and how can it encourage or inhibit change? • Key principles for leading change initiatives Exercises and simulations allow participants to practice various techniques and strategies discussed in class. Each participant will complete a behavioral assessment and receive a Change Management workbook. Participants will gain a better understanding of how change impacts organizations and learn effective strategies for creating a change-capable workforce." } ["sf_event_status"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(9) "Completed" } ["sf_event_location"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(5) "NJMEP" } ["sf_salesforce_id"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(18) "7011Q0000010JYRQA2" } ["RecordTypeId"]=> array(1) { [0]=> string(18) "0121Q000001QFXEQA4" } }
