At one time or another most of us have wished that the pace of change at work would slow down so we could catch our breath. Unfortunately, it often does not. So, we usually have to manage the changes as best we can while still maintaining - and sometimes increasing - our own performance, perhaps other peoples performance and maybe even customer expectations.
Phew! It is no wonder we struggle to cope sometimes. If some of the above sounds familiar, this course is for you. We will look at how to manage change personally, as well as how to lead a team through change.
