“The only constant in life is change.”
With so much change rippling through Ontario’s non-profit and public sectors–a shifting political landscape, the evolution of new funding models, new methods for program evaluation and reporting–our clients have been asking us for strategic advice on how to best manage change, lower risk, and increase organizational resilience.
In order to address these concerns, we have convened experts in the areas of strategic management, law, and human resources. They will lead sessions that will provide you with tangible strategies to effectively manage change. Each session will include a presentation, as well as a question and answer period.
3 Perspectives on Change Management for Non-Profits
Session 1: Key Principles and Communications Strategies for Change Management
Laridae, a full-service management consulting firm, that has served more than 150 non-profit and public sector organizations across Ontario, will be leading a session introducing the key principles that organizations need to consider when moving through change, as well as key communications and engagement strategies can enhance internal and external buy-in.
Session 2: Legal Considerations in Times of Change
Cunningham Swan Carty Little & Bonham LLP from Kingston, Ontario, will lead a workshop focusing on the the legal aspects of change management and restructuring, including the scope of management rights, managing the risk of constructive dismissal, managing human rights issues, and severance liability.
Session 3: Change Management from a Human Resources Perspective
Savino Human Resources Partners (SHRP), a consulting firm based in Peterborough, will lead a workshop demonstrating how the effective use of goal-setting, feedback and performance systems can support change management, clarify new organizational structures, and drive innovation in your organization from a human resources perspective. Organizational review strategies will also be addressed, including processes to define and evaluate new positions, job descriptions, and compensation models that can result from a shift in organizational structure.
There is no cost to attend the seminar, but participation is limited and you will need to register in advance in order to secure your place.
