Overview/Description
A key challenge for managers is keeping employees motivated and productive during times of change. To survive and grow in volatile markets, organizations have to embrace change; they have to innovate and adapt. However, because change involves uncertainty, it's stressful, and it can evoke fear and resistance among employees – just at a time when an organization needs everyone to pull together and give their best efforts. In this course, you'll learn how to recognize and manage employee stress, as well as your own stress, during periods of change. You'll also learn about common reactions to change, and ways to motivate and support employees.

Target Audience
Managers and team leaders wanting to develop or refine their skills in managing employee performance during difficult times and in delivering difficult messages to their subordinates, colleagues, or superiors.
