Change Management

By Bill Templemen of Ascent Associates


Any seminar on managing change must help you deal with your own reactions as well as the people you lead. As a leader, you must model the changes you would like to see in others. Not only do you have to 'Walk your talk', you have to 'Be your talk'.

This seminar has been designed to give you experience in dealing with change through live simulations. Your own reactions to these simulations become the content for the program. Change is not an event. It is a process, and leaders must be able to manage this process by understanding and responding to their own emotions and the emotions of others in going through change. Although each change in every organization is a unique event, the process of change is common to almost all people in all organizations. You will learn how to work with this process and use it to your benefit as a leader of people going through change.
