Rhode Island Higher Education Training Consortium
CHANGE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
|Session 1: Managing Change|
|This workshop is designed to help participants understand the stages of change, the effects of the change process on self and others, and the manager's responsibility in managing through change. A self-scoring assessment will help attendees identify what stage of the change process they most identify with. Participants will also learn critical change skills, and techniques for identifying and managing change resistance.|
|Session 2: Communication Strategies for Change|
|Participants in this workshop will explore the critical communication role managers play in the change process, from explaining the change vision through increasing staff "buy-in". Building on the concepts presented in Managing Change, participants will learn language that supports and undermines the change effort, critical questions that managers should ask and answer, and tools for handling change criticism. An assessment will help attendees understand their own change communication strengths and weaknesses.|
All sessions will run from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
Continental breakfast will be provided.
