Managing change and transition

Based on Newstarts long experience of working with individuals and organizations in different change processes.


One of today's major challenges is an increasingly faster work-pace, things must be done in less time by fewer people. The constant process of change has the effect of plans being postponed with reduced productivity as a result. 

Managing change and transition addresses how you can lead the human side of change. The latest developments in brain research (neuroscience) have contributed to greater understanding of what creates resistance to change. 

Target group: 
The training is aimed at those who currently work with any kind of change within the organization, for example as a Manager, Leader, HR/Personnel-specialist, Project Manager, Consultant or Coach. 

The course’s three main areas:
  1. How to lead the change process with the Transitions-model with the focus on the individual. How to get your employees involved in the change process.
  2. Neuroscience - how the brain is affected by change?
  3. Coaching approach linked to implementing change.
  4. Final report and certification.
About the training: 
Module 1 - The human side of how to manage change 
We learn to understand the mechanisms of change and how we can reduce resistance to change and more effectively manage change. The purpose of the Transition-model is to meet the employees where they are by providing tools and strategies to maintain motivation and commitment to change through different phases. How we communicate successfully change/changes? 

Module 2 - Neuroscience - how the brain is affected by change? 
What has happened within the area of brain research/neuroscience, and how can I use it when I communicate, lead teams and when leading the process of change? Neuroscience is linked to behavior, feelings and disposition. Over the past ten years there has been a revolution in neuroscience. Using magnetic resonance imaging, scientists can now study how the brain behaves when we think, feel, or make decisions. The results provide new insights into how good leadership should be conducted. We go through the SCARF-model to show just how the brain reacts to threats in social situations. 

Module 3 - coaching approach linked to implementing change
What is coaching and how can I use it. How to create a coaching culture? To increase motivation and involvement of employees through constructive feedback. Coaching skills according to ICF's core competencies and practical coaching exercises linked to changing situations. 

Module 4 - Diploma 
Presentation of the final report where you apply your new skills linked to your own process of change. Diploma.
