MDF Training Course on “Change Management” and “Leadership & People Management”

1. Be the change you want to be

In this ever changing world, adjusting to the ever changing environment is one of the skills managers and leaders need to possess. Easier said than done, most of the time. We see around us organizations struggling for existence or trying to adjust. Some succeeded and some failed. So, is there a recipe to successful organizational change?

Be the change you want to be

Leading changes means creating a common vision, ownership, clarity, transparency, hope and predictability for those who will be affected by the changes. It also means creating space for learning and unlearning, building trust, nurturing commitment and dealing with resistance to changes. In leading changes you need to set an example before you can inspire others. We sometimes forget the ingredients needed to succeed. Do we have a clear vision that all embrace, do we have the skills and also incentives to push for changes? Have we considered how to deal with those that will be affected by the changes? Do we have a team to provide support and follow through?

MDF training course on “Change Management” will provide you a practical overview of the different steps and approaches to leading and managing changes in your organisations, institutions or environment.

You will:

  • + Learn the different perspectives of organizational change and the role of leadership in a change process
  • + Obtain how to apply the organizational change cycle approach to ensure the ingredients for change are well + integrated in the change process
  • + Learn the different ways people react to change and how to deal with them
  • + Explore ways to communicate effectively with staff in a change process to create commitment and trust and deal constructively with resistance
  • + Develop a change management plan based on your own case
