Coping with Change

Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.

William James

Whenever employees find themselves in a position where change is imposed on them either by a merger of two companies, by a significant change dictated by the market, or by a major strategic initiative, they often react in negative ways which ultimately can impact on the workplace climate, employee morale and the organization’s ability to produce. Understanding and responding effectively to the needs of non-manager employees during the process of change is crucial to the success of the organization both in the medium term and in the long term.
