Celemi Exploring Change-PowerDialauge
Change management is an essential skill for every employee. This is the newest change management training to come to the United States.
The ability to engage employees in change is rapidly becoming a key determinant of business success. Your leaders need a clear understanding of the factors involved, so they can take action and lead change effectively.
In our global, fast-paced business environment, organizations constantly need to reinvent themselves– and their tools and processes – to stay on top of the game. Increasingly, it is therefore the agility and adaptability among employees, rather than specific skill sets, that provide a critical competitive advantage.
So what does it take to build greater “openness to change” in an organization? As in many other areas, success breeds success. Professionally handled change implementations build confidence, and negative experiences feed future resistance.
Putting on the change glasses
Organizations have much to gain by reflecting on how they view and handle the process of change. When do you put on the “change glasses”, in your organization? In many companies, there is no clear definition of when an initiative qualifies as “change”, or what this means in terms of a specific organizational response.
Celemi Exploring change offers a structured dialog that puts the spotlight on four success factors that can fast track change in your organization. It highlights the human dimension of change, providing valuable insights for leaders that want to help their teams or departments act on change – now and in the future. Because the only constant is change…
What clients say
“We held the workshop as part of a 2-day management meeting, as we were planning the reorganization of our European distribution chain.
The session helped us consider the full context of the change, and put the spotlight on what we need to get right, to bring people on board.”
- Kerstin Lindell, President and CEO, Bona AB
“We know that our IT-solutions trigger change processes, and we help our clients prepare and communicate around change. The workshop was a great tool for sharing experiences between our consultants, and brainstorming about new services we can offer to them.”

Celemi Exploring change supports a dialog on change issues across functional and hierarchical boundaries. The workshop has been designed for managers who are invested in making change happen (leading people or projects/initiatives). It is also appropriate for groups of high potentials and/or executive MBA students.
Organizations, divisions or teams that want to increase the return on investment for change initiatives can use the workshop to build a shared language and collective insights into what it takes to bring people on board.
The workshop provides a platform for:
- sharing experiences of change processes,
- applying theoretical models for organizational change, and
- deepening the participants’ understanding of the human side of change.
- participants walk out with a plan for the change they are working on.
Key themes and concepts
- Organizational resistance to change
- Communicating the greater picture
- Emotional responses to change
- Building shared ownership
- Aligning internal conditions (structures and processes) to motivate employees
The workshop materials include a case story that is explored from the perspective of four different employees. This activity opens possibilities to add on focus sessions on a range of additional themes, that allow the session to be tailored to fit the needs of a specific context or organization.
