Managing Transitions

21 June 2022: 9.30 am - 11.30 am

As a result of Covid, we have all become experts on “pivoting” and “working flexibly.” We have also had to learn how to manage transitions in our organisations and our lives in general.

Although transitions can lead to improvements in our lives and our organisations, they also involve endings. In our desire to move forwards and focus on what comes next we often avoid attending to this part of the process or acknowledging the losses involved.

From a colleague leaving to a project finishing or even an organisation closing down, we all have to manage endings. If we do this well then the transition to what follows will be better for everybody.

This workshop will share a theoretical framework for leading through transitions, including the Four Pillars model developed by Lizzie Bentley-Bowers and Alison Lucas.

By the end of the workshop, participants will appreciate how all change involves endings/transitions. They will understand the importance of attending to endings (including the “messy” bits), will have explored several examples of managing endings well, and will have a “road map” for navigating transitions – whether at a personal, project, team or organisational level.
