TAKING CHARGE OF CHANGE

COURSE OVERVIEW

Very few, if any, companies are immune from change these days. Change is usually initiated because businesses have to respond to pressures and constraints to remain competitive. During change there is, however, a danger of productivity plummeting because of morale problems associated with poorly managed change. Therefore equipping you or your team to empathise, support, guide and communicate positively about change may be one of the best investments you could make to grow and sustain your business.
