The Buck Stops with You on Getting Employees to Embrace Change

14108 M-F 8a-5p Aug 27–Aug 31 $1,395 Dubuque/Town Clock Ctr 106A Crow

Upon communicating change to employees, have you ever heard, “When is management going to understand it is the real world down here?” How about, “If my boss would just get off my back and let me do my job, everything would be okay!” Or, “Why can’t they leave well enough alone?” These expressions reflect symptoms of employees resisting change, but more importantly, leaders potentially not fulfilling their responsibility to communicating change. This class is designed to help leaders communicate change and help employees overcome resistance. Common sense says, if employees are good at resisting change, a leader needs to be just as effective in getting them to accept it.
