What is Change Management?

Have you ever adjusted your strategy in the face of unexpected internal or external factors? Have you ever restructured your organizational chart? Have you ever had new company policies pop up and impact the way you carry out day-to-day business?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these, you’ve engaged in change management.  Are you upskilling and reskilling in this area on a consistent basis?

Why Change Management Training Is Critical

If there’s anything we learned in the last year, it is that major change can happen seemingly overnight. Embracing change and understanding how to unexpectedly adapt & adjust while continuing to satisfy stakeholders, keep employees motivated, and meet the most important business objectives is what set some organizations apart from others over the past two years – and is what will surely continue to differentiate organizations in the future… a major competitive advantage.   

Risks of NOT Including Change Management Training in Your Development Strategy

While everyone should be ready for change, nobody sees changes like a global pandemic coming, just as nobody will see whatever other major turning points arise in the years to come. Lacking change management training means having fewer tools, guidance for paradigm shifts and strategy evaluation skills necessary to survive unexpected events.

Clients, stakeholders, your employees, and your stakeholders will notice if an organization is not well-equipped to take on change, as we now know what it takes to be resilient professionally and personally. If employees feel their leadership is not managing change well, there are a number of direct and indirect negative impacts; such as employee and client-base churn.   

Off-the-Shelf or Customized?

All organizations have different training needs when it comes to understand all that change management skills can do.

  • Off the Shelf — You can choose a turnkey, off-the-shelf course that works for a broad range of workforces and is ready-to-go whenever your workforce is ready to begin. These programs save organizations time and money and cover a wide range of skills.
  • Customized or Tailored – If the needs of your workforce are more complex, customizable change management training courses are also available. These programs are tailored to the specific needs of your employees, such as varying levels of familiarity with program content, skill levels, calendar availability, budgets, and intended outcomes/impact to the business.

How Courses are Delivered:

  • Guaranteed to run schedule courses can be booked in advance to maximize use of company time and ensure minimal interruption to operations and employee schedules
  • Live online/virtual courses are delivered through your secure digital learning platforms (or ours if you need one) that enable seamless communication between students and instructors and collaboration
  • Live in-person programs are delivered via more traditional educational methods; at your location or an alternate location which we can help coordinate for you.

Who Needs Change Management Training?

All employees, from leaders to junior team members will and need to benefit from embracing change and understanding how to be prepared when unexpected things happen… across the organization’s people, process, and systems. All industries must deal with its own set of unforeseen shifts. Both big organizations and small, family-owned shops are vulnerable to change’s negative effects if strong management isn’t employed.

In summary, change management training may be one of the most universally applicable programs that exists.
