Managing Change at NIH
Is your office in the process of a physical move to a new location?
Have you been asked to supervise a restructuring?
Are you a leader who has just received a new supervisor to report to or new subordinate to manage?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is for you.
The NIH, as an organization, needs to evolve and innovate continually in order to succeed and thrive. In fact, today's competitive, complex, fast-paced organizational landscape requires employees at every level to be prepared to adjust rapidly. Managers, supervisors and team leads need special skills in order to support employees through the change process. This workshop focuses on the structure, dynamics, and management of change in contemporary settings. Theory and practice of the supervisor's and line-manager's role in planning and implementing high impact transitions will be thoroughly explored.
- Developing strategies to maximize persuasion and influence during change
- Developing an understanding of the personal and organizational stages of adjustment that occur during significant change
- Understanding the roles and behaviors necessary for effectively leading people and projects during change
