Transcript of Change Management
- To develop appreciation for the need to change
- To identify what drives change
- To understand responses to change and how to manage them well
Which of the following represents a healthy approach to change?
“Change happens; get over it.”
“Change doesn’t have to be disruptive; we can control it (and the people who implement it)”
“Change is difficult because it often results in a sense of “loss”; it is important to acknowledge the loss.”
“Even though change is constant, it must be “managed”; it cannot be taken for granted.”
“Any major change brings a decrease in productivity; we can shorten the depth of the “dip” and the length of time it takes if we manage change well.
"Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you are just standing still."
- Will Rogers

“The brain is always trying to automate things and to create habits, which it imbues with feelings of pleasure. Holding to the tried and true gives us a feeling of security, safety, and competence while at the same time reducing our fear of the future and of failure,”
Gerhard Roth, "Personality, Decision, and Behavior"
