managing change

You can book us to run workshops such as “Planning and Managing the People Aspects of Change” or "Building Resilience in a Time of Change and Uncertainty" in your organisation. Let us help you to avoid survivor syndrome – where talented people that you wanted to retain resign from your organisation as a reaction to change.

Contact us on 8322 8455 or to let us know you would like us to meet with you to discuss your needs. We will tailor workshops and events especially for you.

"Planning and Managing the People Aspects of Change" is for you if you are planning a change (growth, restructure, downsizing, redundancies etc) or if you are a manager who needs to be able to manage your team effectively during times of change and uncertainty. "Building Resilience in a Time of Change and Uncertainty" is for everyone involved in a change process - especially those who are affected by change but have little control over it.

We can also help you to manage the impact of change on people leaving your organisation – in particular via outplacement consulting and job search skills coaching. To find out more about these services from HR Development at Work please click on “services for job seekers” on the left. For a free tip sheet on Managing Outplacement and Redundancy with a Human Face please email .

Our client experience - what our clients say

We have assisted many organisations in the public and private sectors to manage change – including organisations in telecommunications, education, sports, financial services, retail, and consumer goods. To see testimonials from some of our clients, please click on the testimonials button of this website.

We were asked to design a change management program for small businesses for the Department of Trade and Economic Development’s Better Business Series. Here is what the General Manager of the Small Business Services office said about our work:

"Bridget's change program was adapted for us to address the needs of small business. We liked the content, the new ideas and the interactive presentation style - and this program is now part of our Better Business Series. Highly recommended." Tony De Vries, (formerly General Manager Small Business Services).

Here are a couple of other examples of our customer feedback:

"The best thing about this workshop was the psychological contract - I have sat through change sessions before but this was really different and I had not considered it before." Lillian Fowles, Acting HR Manager, TAFE SA

"Bridget managed a large critical project for us with British Telecom, a major client. Her expertise meant she identified the critical issues very quickly and assisted senior managers to identify key issues to take into account in managing their change program." Dr. K. Coaley, Managing Director, Training and Psychological Services Ltd, Herts, UK

Call us to discover how we can assist you to plan and manage change, including outplacement and redundancies. After your change project - have an effective organisation where staff are on board with the changes, and the certainty that you managed change successfully with a human face.
