The ability to help an organization effectively deal with change is a key competency that all human resource (HR) professionals must possess. However, many people in the HR function have not received any formal training or instruction on how to fulfill this important role. This book provides HR professionals with key concepts and practical techniques to successfully launch, support, and sustain change management initiatives within their organizations. Pragmatic tools and explanations will illuminate critical change management competencies and processes, thereby enabling HR professionals to take on strategic and active roles. As well, understanding of one's own reactions to change will also be explored to assist HR professionals to effectively manage and guide change. Questions posed at the end of each chapter allow for personal reflection and growth, thereby providing further development of skills relating to change management. This text is an excellent resource for HR students, those new to practicing HR and seasoned HR professionals alike.
