Empathy and Change Management with Samantha Barr
For people to embrace an ever-evolving world, it is essential to make the right changes at the right time. A good change manager is invaluable for ensuring these changes are implemented effectively and efficiently. However, managing change without empathy will affect the organisation and its people financially, mentally, and physically. Today, our guest is Samantha Barr who will help us understand change management through the lens of empathy. We explore Samantha’s meaning of change management, the human-centred design of change management, the role of change practitioners, the need for change managers, the impact on the mental health of a person working as a change practitioner and much more.
