Most organisations now operate in very different business environments as compared to just a few years ago. Frequent, complex and ongoing change is something that many employees experience. Evidence suggests that there is scope to change perspectives on change from one that is often seen as negative and disruptive, to one of opportunity and growth.
In order to make reasoned judgements on the need for change, and to identify appropriate responses, managers need to be alert to the external and internal change factors and their potential impact on their organisations, departments and people for which they have responsibility. The workshop aims to help develop a positive and motivational perspective on change enabling businesses and organisations to thrive in what has become, and will continue to be, a very dynamic business environment.
