Cambridge University Libraries Staff : Riding the Waves; Managing Teams Through Change & Uncertainty new Finished 09:30 - 16:30 Cambridge University Library, IT Training Room

Many managers attempt to ‘project manage’ their way through change, deal with uncertainty when it happens or try and ignore it altogether. Such managers then seem surprised by the backlash and resistance they get from their staff! Most managers would like change to be easier and less time consuming. Most managers would like to plan effectively even in times of uncertainty.

This workshop will give you a range of practical and thought-provoking tools, tips and techniques to help you lead and facilitate changes more effectively
