Organizational Change and Transition
Certified Facilitators for Change and
Organizational Development Services
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.

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.
Change Cycle Series
- Individual Transition in Organizations Workshop
- Leading Organizational Transition Workshop
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
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.
