Leading Change from the Front Line
Have you ever wanted something at work to change, but no one ever addressed the issue, so you just put up with it? Maybe you didn't bring it up because you thought you were the only person who didn't like it. Maybe you didn't want to make a fool of yourself by making it an issue. Or maybe you thought your boss would be irritated if you mentioned it. If any of this sounds familiar, this course is designed to help you. It suggests how you can compare your fears of negative outcomes against the potential gains of making a change. It explains the ways you can find out if others want the change, too, so that you know ahead of time what kind of resistance your idea will face. It even offers suggestions for making office politics work for you when you make suggestions. Finally, it gives you ideas on how to build a strong, positive reputation that will stand you in good stead with management.
