Change Management PPT

January 26, 2012 by Dr. Jon Warner in Change Management

Change Management PPTAt its core, what we call ‘change’ is really about something becoming different or transforming itself. Some of these changes occur quite naturally and regularly all around us. People change their clothes or their hairstyle, the weather changes or the seasons change or we even change the place where we live (decorating the walls or moving house altogether).

Whilst most people cope with these sorts of familiar changes quite well, the common factor is that all of these are relatively expected alterations and readily accommodated differences to what has gone before. It is when it a change is unexpected or far greater than we foresee that it can start to become more problematic. Of course, even relatively mundane examples can be unexpected. How many times have you heard people say the following for example: “They forecast sunshine and its pouring rain – I can’t believe it”, “Those shoes are very different to the usual style you wear, isn’t it?” or even “What do you mean we are emigrating to Canada in the summer?”

While we might never eliminate some of these unexpected changes or ‘surprises’, one of the first things to realize about our ability to manage change is that reacting to it when it comes along is always more difficult and potentially wearing than working to ensure that we are as prepared for future change as we can be or trying to become proactive. Although there is no readily applicable formula for doing this, what governs the relationship between ‘reaction’ and ‘proaction’ is that very elusive skill called anticipation. This is not an easy skill to develop or evolve but it is well worth the effort.

\A Change Management PowerPoint (or ppt) led workshop can help many people to better appreciate how to better anticipate and prepare for change and to practice these skills in the safe climate of a training room. In this case, this Change management skills PPT is also fully scripted with trainer notes, allowing full explanations of points to be given by a workshop leader or facilitator (whether or not they are a professional trainer) and even includes a range of discussion exercises and paired or group activities to allow participants to practice specific skills as they are described or shared.
