New change management workshops
“The only thing that is constant is change.” –Heraclitus
Change can be uncomfortable, and even scary sometimes. One of the best ways of dealing with change is to learn how to manage it effectively. When facing the unfamiliar, the more proactive we are, the more change flows smoothly and the faster we adjust to it.
To assist in preparing for the many changes afoot at OP, the OP Change Management Community of Practice — a working group composed of volunteers from various departments across our organization — are developing strategies to support employees through transitions. In partnership with UCOP Learning and Development, the Community of Practice is offering two upcoming workshops.
Managing Change and Transitions
October 10, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Franklin Lobby 1
In this workshop, supervisors and managers will learn their role in understanding, communicating and managing change and transitions. Based on William Bridges’ authoritative work on managing transitions, topics include:
- How to understand and identify employees’ reactions to change
- Conversations to guide employees through stages of change
- Valuable coaching techniques
Making Change Work for You
October 22, 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m.

This 90-minute workshop will deepen your knowledge of how change impacts you and help you find ways to tap into your inner strength during personal or organizational change.
