Leading Change

Change comes in all shapes and sizes, and so do the people it affects. We will help you to support the people who are affected by it.

Volition supports...

  • The leader who needs to plan change processes effectively, taking into account the effect it will have on staff attitudes.
  • The manager who needs to recognise obstacles to delivering change before they become problems.
  • Staff whose positive or negative attitudes to change can be affected by their past experience; their belief in the benefits offered; their personal approach to risk; their ability to influence the outcomes.

Capital projects always bring massive change to an organisation. The cost of training staff for when the new facility opens is often included in the grant, but there is also a need to support leadership through what is often a unique experience.
