Introduction

Managing the challenges of change

“Everything changes and nothing stands still…” Heraclitus of Ephesus (535 BC – 475 BC)

Resistance to change in all aspects of our lives is often so widespread that it becomes almost cliché. The common automatic response for most people to the question “Do you like change?” is as direct as it is negative! Even the best intentions and engaging words of commitment often do not reflect the actions of resistance and even sabotage that follow change. The danger lurking for the leaders of change is what I call “weather vane improvisation”. In other words, the lack of preparation invariably leads to improvised reactions where the desired direction gives way to impulsive reactions.

This often leads to a lot of confusion and frustration in a work environment. The “Managing the challenges of change” course offers both managers and employees who are leaders of change a variety of techniques and tips to identify the reasons for change, to communicate them appropriately and convincingly, to tell the difference between change and transition, adapt regularly to face the obstacles without ever losing sight of these reasons and anchor this change in the new vision and culture of the company.

Managing the challenges of change begins with knowing the cost of the status quo versus the cost of change!
