Mid managers play a key role in ensuring LMI is fully incorporated in the counseling process. As new procedures and expectations emerge, an understanding of change implementation and strategies will be useful to managers responsible for training and supporting counselors.
Change initiatives are a part of organizational life. Individuals holding middle management positions are frequently tasked with implementing a change directive and ensuring it is translated to new employee behavior. As a result, it is essential for middle management to understand “the human side of change”, strengthen change leadership skills, and develop strategies to support change implementation.
This webinar presentation will explore:
- The human side of change
- Leadership for change initiatives
- Applying a model of change (ADKAR) to the use of LMI in VR
- Anticipating changes for counselors relative to LMI utilization
