As economies boom and slump worldwide, every organization must be prepared to meet the challenge of change. For team leaders like you, this may mean changing work processes, product specifications and office layout; supervising more contract labour; etc.

3. Managing change can make all the difference
Whether the results of change are positive, negative or something in between depends a great deal on how change is managed. Managed well, change can increase efficiency, productivity and worker satisfaction. Managed poorly, change can have the opposite effect.

  • Some people fight change. They see it as an unnecessary disruption.” The old system worked just fine. This new way will never work.”

5. Change can be unsettling
