Embracing Change

Change is going to come. The decision is not about how to avoid it, but rather how to embrace it and engage everyone in the organization with the realities of it. Leading through change in an organization brings specific challenges that must be met with courage and confidence, creativity and flexibility. The first step is understanding the complexities of change, including the potential impacts to everyone involved, so that you meet challenges right from the start and remain in top form throughout the process. In uncertain times, you can remain productive and positive — and help others do the same.

Change happens, and when it does, your reaction to it can mean the difference between your team  thriving and or just surviving. Sometimes change is not the problem, resistance is. Workplaces are in a constantly evolving environment of change. Regardless of your role, you can influence and drive change. Seizing this opportunity has numerous benefits. Being a change advocate positively impacts how you are viewed in the organization, your job satisfaction and your opportunity for career advancement. Leading a changing organization is a demanding, time-consuming responsibility.

In this module, we will examine the challenges of change leadership and the mistakes that often result. We will incorporate principles for leading organizational change, leading individuals during times of change, and managing our own reactions to change. You will learn to embrace change by focusing on what you will gain, not what you will lose. In doing so, you garner the attention of others as a change agent, armed to lead the change in your organization.
