Organizations, in these changing times, must achieve strategic organizational alignment in order to meet and exceed mission goals. During the chaos of change however job responsibilities shift, accountability slips, and productivity suffers. Alignment is a sought after, but oft missed goal. Effective transition and change management planning and execution can alleviate some of the chaos and help reduce the productivity loss and reestablish the critical alignment so necessary for success.

Transition Matters® can help smooth the chaos of change by: providing the assistance needed to determine competency requirements during and after change through training needs assessments; reestablishment of responsibility and accountability through jobs redesign and succession planning; and, creation of transition teams and/or communication plans to strengthen and support any change process.

Transition Matters® is pleased to offer certified facilitation in:

  • William Bridges' Managing Organizational and Personal Transitions

William Bridges' Transition Programs
William Bridges' work is internationally renowned for its success in helping individuals and organizations assess their transition readiness and increase their ability to manage the human side of any change process.

Transition Management refers to the people side of the process: intentionally assisting all staff to let go of the old, come through the confusing time between the old and the new, and ensure a successful new beginning. This is accomplished through a series of strategic transition workshops and applications. They are:

  • Individual Transition in Organizations Workshop
  • Leading Organizational Transition Workshop
Change Cycle Series
The Change Cycle Series™ is based on the powerful change cycle model developed by Mary Ann Salerno and Lillie R. Brock. This model has been successfully used by thousands of individuals and organizations to get through life's difficult changes. The Change Cycle Series™ includes:
  • Change Cycle Locator™ Assessment Profile
  • Letting Go of Holding On - A Personal Change Skills Workshop
  • First Things First - Managing the Impact of Organizational Change
  • First Things First - Managing The Impact Of Organizational Change
This three-day program, through William Bridges and the Change Cycle™ model, is designed to present for exploration and application the many aspects of change the leaders of today face on a daily basis. Whether it is within the public or private sector environment, the need to manage and lead change is paramount and an absolute requirement. It provides leaders (supervisors, managers, and executives) with the techniques, strategies, and tools to assist them in balancing personal issues and those of their co-workers when it comes to change.

The ability to create a work environment that maintains or even increased productivity with reduced resources and lowered morale is a challenge for the most talented of leaders. Leaders need to step up and learn the keys, tools, methods, and techniques that will equip them with the ability to lead others through endings and neutral zones and on into new beginnings. This workshop is intended for managers who are responsible for implementing change, however minor or major the change may be.

It teaches how to recognize the predictable stages of change; how to get people through the ensuing transition; how to thrive prior to, during and after each change; and how to hone your leadership skills to meet the challenge of leading change in a dynamic, ever-changing environment.

Letting Go of Holding On - Individual Transition in Organizations
Reorganization. Downsizing. Re-engineering. New technology...new strategies...new rules...new leaders. It feels like a page from Alice in Wonderland. Constant change has made everyday planning difficult and long range planning almost impossible. What will happen with life, as you know it right now...will it exist in the future as it does now? You can't count on anything anymore - except change itself.

This two-day workshop, through William Bridges and the Change Cycle™ model, will show participants practical ways to deal successfully with the transitions that they face. It is intended for individual employees whose roles, careers and lives are being affected by change.

Using Everyday Creativity to Embrace Change
This one-day interactive workshop uses creativity as a vehicle for helping individuals deal with the daily demands of change within their personal and professional lives. It will assist attendees in changing perspectives, re-framing problems into opportunities, breaking destructive patterns, and using change as a time to look for more than one right answer. Using the video and photo images of world-class photojournalist, Dewitt Jones, coupled with the landmark change work of William Bridges, this workshop challenges the participant to look at creativity as a means for stimulating thinking, approach and attitude during a time that challenges those three are to the maximum. Come prepared to experience a new look at change that can shake up your world and your perspective.

Finding Your Niche During Change
Many times as organizations restructure, downsize, or merge functions, employees are faced with career decisions as a result. By helping employees make informed career choices, you strengthen internal capability and empower all employees with the tools to plan their future. Managers are left with employees who have an assorted set of skills and employees that may not fit the organization. There is a need to assess the skill set of the remaining employees in an organization to regain productivity, morale, and teamwork. Through the GREAT MAP® Program and a process of evaluation of the employee's assets, abilities, competencies, desires and temperament we can guide an organization through the stages of transitional change. The focus is to develop a team relationship with the right skills mix to effectively meet organizational realignment and goals.

After Downsizing - The Survivors
What is left behind? The employees not touched by the downsizing will undergo feelings of relief, guilt, exasperation, anxiety, and anger. Employees will be left with smaller staffs and more work. They will also experience a sense of insecurity for fear of being next. It would be to an organization's benefit to parlay these negative feelings into positive steps and become a healthier environment. This one-day workshop will help employees cope and prepare them to meet future needs of the organization while dealing with the aftermath of downsizing.
