Change is a familiar scene in many organisations and yet approximately 70% of initiatives fail to achieve their goals. Managers have a responsibility to help their people transition through change, to acquire new skills and adapt to new experiences. For some this is easy and exciting, for others it may be paired with discomfort or anxiety, for all it requires our flexibility and patience.

The Change Management Institute South West (UK) and Burges Salmon LLP are pleased to host their first collaborative event on 'resilience in times of change’. Graham Mitchell and Chloe Parfitt of Burges Salmon have teamed up with the Change Management Institute and Zoe Hawkins, Co-Founder of In Good Company to share a number of tools and techniques for managing yourself and others through times of change and how to build resilience.

Our speakers will share with you a number of tools and techniques to use whilst working through change with your people and real life insights, including:

  1. Setting realistic expectations around change
  2. Typical mindsets during change and transition
  3. Understanding the role of the comfort zone
  4. Identifying resistance triggers
  5. Activating growth mindsets
  6. How to support yourself/others

We hope you leave this workshop with new insights, ready to face Organisation Change with a new perspective.
