Navigating Through Change
Irwin Professional Pub., 1994 - Business & Economics - 201 pages
Navigating through Change is one of the few books that addresses both the operational and the human needs of an organization undergoing change. On the operational level, author Harry Woodward offers a complete strategic planner for setting goals - and meeting them - within a chaotic change environment. On the human side, he outlines the specific skills and sensitivity needed to gain the trust of employees, encourage innovation and teamwork, and replace uncertainty with motivation. Navigating through Change is based on the author's 15 years of experience in a variety of change environments, where he observed first-hand the management skills that facilitate a successful change. Navigating through Change is an important handbook for managers, human resource professionals, trainers, and others who must balance organizational needs, employee needs, and their own needs in the face of dramatic change.
