Managing Change-The Only Way To Survive & Thrive
Trainer: Anil Bhatnagar
Duration: 3 days
A. About The Workshop:
Successful past or present often blocks our vision to the successful future. Those who cannot compete and cannot change with the changing scenario are always left behind. Organizations with successful futures are open to new ideas and are willing to explore different new ways of doing things, because that is the only way to keep the doors to the future open.
As per a study conducted by Shell Group each of the historic 27 companies studied by them that have lasted for over 100 years, changed their `business-lanes’ at least once in their lives. Japan’s Sumitomo has its origins in a copper casting shop founded by Riemon Soga in 1590. Swedish company Stora, a major paper, pulp and chemical manufacturer began as a copper mine more than 700 years ago. Du Pont, 200 years old began as a gun powder company is now a specialty chemical company. Mitsui, 300 years old was a drapery shop to begin with, became a bank, got into mining and moved into manufacturing towards the end of the nineteenth century. These companies have managed to live so long only because they did not resist the change.
The workshop makes people aware of the losses they may be incurring, in personally and collectively as a team, because of their unconscious internal and external blocks, and how to overcome these. It also trains them into identifying and implementing the right changes timely and adequately.
WHY DO WE NEED CHANGE?

· Change is a reality we have to move in sync with.
· The existence-living graph
· The two best gifts of life: The excitement of challenge and the thrill of accomplishment.
· Self esteem
· You weaken your change muscle because of non-use.
· Focusing on the pain of changing but not on that of not changing.
· Beliefs that are a deterrent to change.
· It is very tempting to feel that we have arrived.
· Self referral vs approval seeking.
· The illusions
· Tendency to play safe
· Lack of self love and esteem
· Discerning people from their beliefs, thoughts and opinions.
· Taking obstacles as pervasive and not as messages.
· Waking up too late to register the need, plan or to take action:
