Then, you will want to follow this six-step process – starting where you first encounter issues.

1. Help your team to understand the need for change
Not always aware of the drivers. So, they resist change by not engaging with it
2. Deal with the emotional response to the change
It may be anger, upset, fear, frustration, bitterness…
The primary need is for you to give people time and to listen
3. Help them to understand the details of the changes and why they are right, given the situation
4. Help them explore the implications of the change
Share the benefits, but also be honest with the negative implications
5. Look for ways to help them cope
Training, support, guidance, practical help
6. If the change is not right for them, deploy whatever support the organization offers, so they can take the steps that are right for them

1. What changes are your team dealing with now? And what are you aware of that is coming up? (2 MC CPD Points)
2. Review the video and determine what you will do to support your team through change. Make a plan. (4 MC CPD Points)
