Change Management

Change is an inevitability in business. Those who stand still amidst a changing industry soon become outdated and out of business. We need to be ready to shift with the advent of new technology and best practice, but changes are not always easy or comfortable. Often change is looked upon with great scepticism, and can cause upset, confusion and even arguments within our teams.

As managers, we need to be ready for change, and we should have the knowledge and the tools to guide our people through times of change as comfortably as possible. In this course you will study the cycle of change and how to best help people through this process, as well as the four fundamentals of managing change.

This course is full of practical application to help you in real world situations as you seek to manage your team through periods of change.

Why developing competence is the managers responsibility  

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the advent of self directed learning - in other words creating the environment where staff take control of their own learning, often supported by the organisation.  I’ve nothing against this approach, it’s great if people take charge of their own development, however my word of caution is concerned with this becoming the only approach.

Managers, stop trying to motivate your staff!

For much of my management career I was under the impression that one of the requirements of a good manager was to motivate their team members.  In recent years I’ve begun to wonder if that’s altogether the wrong thing!  My doubt first manifested itself when reading Prof Steve Peters suggesting that motivation was worthless - WORTHLESS!  Yes, really, the British olympic cycling teams psychologist tells his athletes to forget it, it’s a waste of time.
