Why is change management an essential skill?
Change is inevitable within every business but it remains one of the most challenging factors to manage. There are many reasons for the challenges that change creates, but the main one is the impact that change has on people.
How people feel about change and their response to it, is what creates situations which greatly impact an organisation’s productivity and efficiency. This can be positive and proactive but we often hear the opposite.
For this reason managers who are equipped with the skills to manage change are an asset to your organisation. They have a critical role in leading others through times of change and ensuring that it occurs as smoothly as possible with outcomes that are sustained for the business.
