Managing Change Workshop
We are all aware of the old saying: ‘The only constant is change’.
Day by day we quite readily adapt to change in our everyday life. Today I can take and transfer photographs to the other side of the world, communicate anywhere by email, watch videos, download music, read virtually any book, access maps and unlimited information etc. All this on a piece of equipment that I can hold in my hand!! To most of us, this would have appeared science fiction only 10 years ago.
Why then can it be considerably more difficult to have change accepted in business?
On 26th September the BCC arranged a training workshop in Prague for 9 executives/managers from vastly differing backgrounds. They came together to discuss how to enable change to be implemented more effectively in their respective organisations. They also studied how to gain the support of those involved, by using some quite simple tools, approaches and skills.
One point that was clearly recognised is that people’s reaction to change is often influenced by their preferred behaviour style, not because they are either ‘positive’ or negative’. Managers must take this into account when introducing change
At the end of an enjoyable and interactive day, each person left with ideas and actions that will help them manage change to successful outcomes. In addition, on-going support and advice was made available.
This event has now taken place. Below is a selection of pictures from the workshop:
