Managers are often faced with staff resistance that affects individual and team performance. To overcome resistance, managers need techniques for assessing the situation, strategies for empowering their team, and effective communication skills to handle difficult situations immediately, clearly, confidently, and respectfully. Through reflective exercises and group activities, participants will explore their reactions to staff resistance and its effect on developing an environment that fosters trust and collaboration while encouraging positive change.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify and manage staff resistance before it reaches epic proportions;
- Create a work environment that motivates and empowers staff;
- Set clear expectations to increase staff buy-in and achievement of overall program/organizational goals; and
- Create a Personal Action Plan for implementation of strategies learned.
