DeadlineAugust 15, 2022
A living, growing organization depends upon continuous change. New ideas, new approaches, new customers, and new services are the life-blood of all great organizations¿especially those in the public sector. If public agencies fail to build employee readiness for change or to encourage and sustain employee commitment to emerging needs and directions, the end may be in sight! A key challenge for leaders in today¿s public sector organization is getting employees to see and understand the need for change, guide them in discovering new ways of working, and then help them to embrace these new ideas. This seminar explores strategies for communicating the need for change and ideas for building employee commitment to the ¿change we need!¿ CPM Competencies: 6.1 Recognize and promote organizational change. AND 6.3 Adapt to changes and setbacks and adjust to new situations. Desired Learning Outcomes: 1. Describe how major change affects people emotionally and why it often leads to disruption and resistance. 2. Identify actions that leaders and others can take to enable a more healthy response in the face of change. 3. Identify actions that leaders must take to successfully introduce a change ¿ and then sustain employee commitment to the change. 4. Describe the forces currently driving change at your agency and in your department/work area ¿ and the forces for future changes. 5. Develop strategies for strengthening change resiliency in yourself and in others ¿making you and others hardy survivors rather than victims of change.
