The challenge of change in organizations: helping employees thrive in the new frontier

Front Cover
Davies-Black Pub., Jan 1, 1995 - Business & Economics - 283 pages
Threatened with economic insecurity and a loss of identity, it's not surprising that so many people resist change, even to the point of undermining or sabotaging what seems a well-thought-out plan. That's why "the plan" isn't enough. The Challenge of Change in Organizations shows you how to provide people with the kind of information and support they need to deal positively with the impact of change on their work lives.
Distinguishing itself from the current literature on organizational change, this book focuses on what people as individuals need in times of change and transition. It shows how different people respond and contribute to change differently, and explains what you as an executive, manager, business owner, consultant, or employee can do to help people adapt to a new mission statement and a new organization.
