Book offers easy guide to navigating organizational change in today’s fast-paced business world
LOVELAND, Colo., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Organizations are experiencing change at an ever-increasing rate; as an employee, it can be difficult to navigate these changing tides. Today’s release of the third edition of Employee’s Survival Guide to Change provides employees with the tools to succeed during organizational change. This latest text from Prosci, the leader in change management research, contains practical information and real-life examples gathered from years of research with hundreds of organizations.
“An easy, quick read, the Employee’s Survival Guide to Change is good advice for anyone working in the ever-changing, chaotic environment we now call ‘business as usual,’” says Carol Kinsey Goman, author of This isn’t the Company I Joined.
Successful change is a result of many individuals choosing to participate in and work toward the desired state together. Industry-leading organizations are using the Employee’s Survival Guide to Change book to engage with employees and empower them to succeed during change. Iris Perez of Pearson confirms the result of using Employee’s Survival Guide to Change: “I love this book. Short, sweet and to the point. It gives employees information about how they can opt in, it gives them the power of choice and tells them what actions they can take to make the change easier. It also gives them language and a way to talk with their manager and others about change.”
Written to speak directly to employees, this book answers frequently asked questions to provide an understanding about why change is happening and how to control it. Employees learn that the decisions they make throughout the change process have a direct impact on their own success during the transition, how they perform and how they are perceived at work. The newest revision of the Survival Guide provides practical examples of actions employees can take to be successful, respected leaders among their peers and managers. Madeleine Ashe of Vanguard Communications Corporation proclaims, “A much needed addition to every employee’s toolbox! The first thing to reach for when faced with change. It’s like hiring a ‘personal coach’ at a fraction of the cost.”
The Employee’s Survival Guide to Change helps employees become participants in change rather than victims or targets of change. Employees now can take control and discover how to survive and thrive in today’s changing workplace. This book is available from Prosci at http://www.change-management.com/survival-guide.htm.
