What do change, death and dodgy politicians have in common?
You can guarantee they’re going to happen! Whether we like it or not, Change is here to stay, and it’s only the pace of it that varies – usually increasing! This can impact massively on a professional and personal level for many people, so the ability to lead effectively through change and coping with and resilience to change skills are now critical capabilities.
We’ve collated a small selection of articles and videos for you on change, and hope the material will assist you in some way if you’re going through change now, or at some point in your life. Scroll down to read.
At Southern Cross Coaching & Development we do a lot of work in this space and have several customisable in-house and coaching options available related to change, such as: how to cope with and build resilience to change and how to manage and lead people through times of change.
Communication is critical, but is very often a lacking part of Organisational Change. If you think that communication is lacking in your organsiation, then have a look at our Brain-Based Coaching Conversations for Managers program, and also our Giving and Receiving Feedback course for all levels of staff, managers and executives. Feel free to give us a call to discuss options, what you need and how we might be able to help.
We’d love to help you achieve a great Change culture at your company, so if you would like to know how we can help, and/or speak to us, give us a call on 02 7901 5618 or reply to this email to talk through your requirements, and see how we can tailor a program for you.
