Organisational change is notoriously difficult. Across different types of change, from mergers and acquisitions to restructuring and culture change, on average only one in three is successful. What’s more, a poor change management process is costly.
Armed with an understanding of the psychology of change and of the brain’s natural response to change, leaders and managers can learn how to improve the effectiveness of their change leadership. By understanding the brain, you can shift the change management process so that ‘change resistance’ is transformed into ‘change resilience’.
Managing Change – Insights from Neuropsychology, will help you to:
- Understand the psychology of change and how to manage change more effectively.
- Enhance your change leadership, through an understanding of people’s typical psychological reactions to change.
- Develop a change management process informed by psychological research.
