This interactive program will explore how L&D professionals can use the Change cycle and SARA model to explain the response to organizational change initiatives. Whether an organization is experiencing persistent change due to the demands of its industry or responding to the need of a changing generational shift in its workforce, L&D professionals can assist with the emotional demands that Change makes on staff and management. Attendees will walk away with a better ability to:
- Describe the four (4) phases of Change and corresponding SARA response
- State the personal transition types when change initiatives are implemented
- Explain the use of positive coping exercises for teams during change
