Change Management: Change and How to Deal With It Online Training
This course will help teach participants how to:
-Accept there are no normal or abnormal ways of reacting to change, but that we must start from where we are.
-See change not as something to be feared and resisted but as an essential element of the world to be accepted.
-Understand that adapting to change is not technical but attitudinal. Change is not an intellectual issue but one that strikes at who you are.
-Recognize that before we can embrace the way things will be, we must go through a process of grieving, and of letting go of the way things used to be.
-See change as an opportunity for self-motivation and innovation.
-Identify strategies for helping change be accepted and implemented in the workplace.
