How to communicate about changes and the future in a consistent manner, and how to deal with potential redundancies humanely and in accordance with the values of the company?

Redundancies are the most demanding situations in management and managerial work. They are never easy, but with careful planning and preparation, dismissal can be done in such a way that it creates as few bumps as possible for those who are dismissed, who continue to work, the employer or the reputation of the company.

As the number of dismissed transforms into faces, skills, work activities and life situations, responsible managers face challenges. Who do I encounter, what do I say, and how does he or she experience it? These are the situations we prepare for in the change coaching for supervisors.

Coaching helps directors and managers

  • Commit to the transformation process
  • Understand the basics of the co-operation procedure and justify the decisions taken to their working group
  • Be loyal to the decisions of management and colleagues
  • Communicate the change in a consistent manner
  • Face criticism
  • Prepare for and implement redundancy discussions

When the situation is over, and in order for a new good everyday life to begin, you need to focus on managing the personnel who continue and taking care of the motivation.
