Positively on Board with Change

An interactive workshop for Leaders from Jan Matthews – Consultant & Trainer in Staff Resilience and Managing Resistance to Change

Wednesday 11th October 2017
9:30am - 1:00pm



Shifting sands can be a way of life in the Charity and the NFP sector. Competing priorities, constant budget squeezes and the ever present threat of reduced funding can all create ongoing pressure for those involved in your service delivery, and therefore its’ effects on the service user.

On a day to day basis, this can be an uphill struggle for employees and volunteers. Change comes in many forms and your staff, like you are just as emotionally invested in the charity’s vision. Any change or threat of change will be personally challenging for them, let alone for managers to manage at a time when your organization consistently needs to maintain focus and energy.

However efficiently change is implemented, this workshop will help you to better understand the human side of change management and the likely behaviours associated with it.

So often, organizations drive ‘hard’ change without acknowledging or having the ability to manage the often difficult emotional impact of change on staff – the soft side of change. There is often no plan or ability to actively pre-empt or manage this fall-out. Even the smallest minority demonstrating a negative attitude towards change can be truly toxic to the rest. Indeed, in Change Management, Hammer’s ‘60:20:20 rule’ says that at any one time, up to 80% of staff will feel and/or be resistant to change.

However. This workshop is not a session packed full of text book theories. It’s a practical workshop focused on helping the beating heart of your organisation – its’ people - to manage change, accept change as a reality and to handle it positively.

The workshop focuses on:

• The Coping Cycle of Change - Change as a process of bereavement or loss (even when the change is positive)

• Understanding and normalising the threat or reality of change to the Human Condition

• Identifying the negative or unhelpful emotions arising in change (or the threat of change) and the resistant attitudinal and behavioural manifestations in individuals and teams during change

• Strategies and interventions for managing resistance to change

• Discussion – gathering tools for assisting leaders (and staff) in overcoming this resistance and negativity.

Outcomes of the workshop:

Inspiration towards consolidating the vision, ethos and effective service delivery of your organization through understanding, and being able to address and minimize toxic and potentially toxic staff reactions to pressure and change.
