Managing change

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of” Jim Rohn

Many organisations are currently facing pressure to cut costs; downsizing employee numbers, increasing workloads, and doing more with less. Managers are the ones who have to drive and deliver the changes that are unpopular. One of the hardest challenges is to respond well to the human consequences of such activity and Managers can feel they are carrying that particular burden alone.

Change needs to be looked at through a structural lens; how do we go about managing change in organisations and teams? What are the foundation stones of managing change?; things like consultation, involvement and sound project management.

However, we all know that change has a huge impact psychologically on us, so its important to understand why we find change so hard, and how we can develop the resilience to cope well.
