Change happens, its all around us and it impacts on every workplace. But what do we do when it happens or needs to happen? how do people cope? what do those responsible for the process do when dealing with employees emotions. To answer these questions and equip businesses with the skills and competence needed to take people with them on what can be a very challenging journey, Reach Another Level has created this dynamic programme.
Its all to easy to get caught up in the mechanistic elements of change, a new computer system, outsourcing of distribution, implementation of CI (Continuous Improvement). But when these things happen emotions, feels, beliefs and values are impacted upon and different people cope in different ways. Some take to the 'new' immediately (bring it on) whist others get lost in turmoil, never wanting to let go

Type of Programme

You don't manage the Change you can only manage the Transition
Why is the 'Jigsaw' programme important?
Change is when something moves from one thing to another, change cannot be managed, you don't manage change, you manage the transition.
Jigsaw helps you manage that transition from a people perspective. It enables you to Get2Grips with the process that causes, on many occasions, so much stress, anxiety and uncertainty for many employees. For people to 'Let go' of the past, fly through the air (transition) and hope the future (new beginning) is going to be a secure place to work, key stakeholders need to utilise a wide skills base. Only when confidence, clarity and the will are in place and managed appropriately, can change be effective.
