Tool: Personal Change Management Workbook

Survive and thrive during a change by understanding what it means to you


Case study 2

Organizational change can be deeply personal. In many cases, leaders and change practitioners can also be personally impacted by a change – for better or for worse. Their understanding, connections and feelings to the change have a direct influence on the overall success.

The Personal Change Management Workbook from LaMarsh Global helps anyone responsible for a change to discern what the change means for the entire organization and them personally.

Download the worksheets to consider questions related to:
  • Defining the desired state: What you know (and don’t know) about the desired state.
  • Assessing the current state: Reasons for the change and the issues that may make it difficult to leave.
  • Determining if there is a path from the current state to the desired state: What steps are needed to make the transition.
  • Reviewing the history of previous changes: How do previous experiences with change impact your ability and willingness to make the current change.
  • Assessing the impact of multiple changes: The degree and impact of changes occurring at the same time.
  • Determining the cost of the transition: See if things might get worse before they get better.
  • Figuring out what roles you and other play: Identify who plays what role and how well that role is being played.
  • Exploring and understanding your feelings: Consider how emotions may impact the change.
  • Identifying rewards and necessary skill development: Determine the benefits of making the change and the necessary skills to complete the change.
  • Creating a plan: Determine what information you have and what you still need to create an action plan.

The workbook is adapted from Change Better: Survive and Thrive During Change at Work and Throughout Life. Change Better explores how individuals can accept, deal with, and maximize change with the greatest speed and least pain.
