Description: Change is a constant part of our lives in the field of prevention and how we navigate it can make or break an organization. Effective change management means strategically preparing and supporting the people around you through new ways of conducting business. This could be related to everything from engaging your board in fundraising, to launching a brand-new prevention program, to adopting new technology across the organization. But the truth is, many (most!) people are very averse to change; it makes them uncomfortable, uneasy, and stressed out, making change management an often-daunting task for many organizational leaders. If change is inevitable, we might as well learn how to successfully manage it! Tips for effective change management will get you off the ground and running with a foundational knowledge for managing change smoothly and productively. It will also help you get buy-in and cooperation from those both internal and external to your organization.
