Managing Change in the Workplace for Managers and Supervisors - Facilitated by Toni Aquino, Faculty and Staff Assistance Program, this workshop teaches you how to be an effective agent of change. On a daily basis staff members face a variety of big and small changes that impact their lives in many ways, both at work and home. Because the change process can at times be complicated and confusing, this workshop will address change as a journey that unfolds in fairly predictable phases. You will examine the dynamics that staff experience when change is rapid and unexpected and discuss ways that managers can better understand what your staff are going through. Learn how to be supportive and make appropriate accommodations for your staff. Learn where to draw the line and what resources are available on campus for your staff.
