Human resources (HR), finance, and administration form the backbone of the organization. They manage functions like recruitment, benefits, and payroll; do the accounting and produce reports on the organization’s financial health; and they are the go-to people who tell us how do manage our daily lives at work.
Do not make the mistake, however, of viewing these areas as support functions. They frequently drive organizational strategies like talent management and financial management.

Change can be disruptive. A life change, whether good or bad, can create a period of uncertainty, stress, and anxiety while you adjust. And change at work is no different. A clear understanding of what organizational change is, and what to expect when dealing with it, can shorten the period of adjustment to it. This course provides a basic understanding of what is meant by organizational change and typical events that can trigger organizational change, as well as essential skills for handling organizational change, including a willingness to take risks and having an openness to the unknown. This course also recognizes that organizations that have been successful in coping with change have strong leadership that guides the team through a series of initial steps that set the stage for success. The first steps to change are the most important of all. Bringing employees on board from the outset will smooth the way for productive change that is supported—and even championed—by employees. The change process is never easy. People feel insecure, undervalued, and threatened. It’s the leader’s job to help employees to overcome these feelings. To do this, organizations need to develop committed and flexible teams, and create an atmosphere that allows open and frank discussion about how improvements can continue to be made. Finally, this course covers the importance of recognizing and capitalizing on the career opportunities presented by organizational change, including the importance of a career plan.
