Change is something we all have to deal with, in our personal lives as well as at work. The pace and frequency of change can put enormous pressure on people, affecting relationships and impacting business performance. The organisations that survive and thrive are those that can successfully manage change and make the most of the opportunities that change offer.
This workshop explores change in a business context, how it affects people and how the manager can lead people successfully through change.
This highly interactive workshop will draw on participants' experience of change and explore a number of models that relate to different aspects of change.
Participants will be asked to put the theory into practice and come up with an action plan to implement after the event.
The workplace can be rich with opportunity. It's a place where we can learn and grow, develop and contribute, build our careers, earn our living and provide for our family. It can also be challenging, demanding and exhausting.
Everyone has to cope with the stresses and strains of work and everyday life. Challenges and change are a constant for all of us. Some of these involve taking some degree of risk, while some may be crises or emergencies that demand our immediate attention.
You will have developed coping mechanisms during your life that help you deal with familiar adverse situations and many unfamiliar ones. Some of your coping mechanisms however, aren't so effective and can even make situations worse.
What separates those who can hold their own and keep going in times of adversity is a cluster of habits that centre on resilience. This workshop will explore what resilience is and the habits that strengthen your resilience enabling you to:
• Deal with pressure and handle stress
• Maintain your motivation and engagement
• Develop and sustain self-esteem
• Bounce back from set-backs and disappointments
• Transform your work life
N.B. There is a Resilience & Wellbeing module on the Intranet featuring videos and downloadable resources.Essential Information

If you don't have a question or issue to bring, you are still welcome to attend to participate in the conversations.
This one-day course explores how managers can create the conditions for excellent performance, treating performance management as a routine activity, not just to be considered when something goes wrong.

Please note the session will not focus on the procedural elements of the formal performance management process. Our workshop People Management Policies covers this.

3. Put first things first
