Is OE doing anything about 'Change Management?'

Fortunately for those of us working through this time of significant change, UCSF does have support for change management. These opportunities encompass activities that support an individuals’ ability to manage their career and their emotional well being. It also supports supervisors so that they can lead and support their staff during transitions.

Since individuals respond to change in very different ways, UCSF offers a variety of tools and settings that meets the needs of such an independent work place. The spectrum includes how to deal with change on a personal level, assessing your own skills and preferences and tools to be more successful in a changing work place. If one is embarking on a job change, there are a series of workshops to support a successful transition. There are specific workshops for those who are responsible for the management of individuals. Individual counseling is also a valuable option.

Ultimately, it is up to each individual to take advantage of a program that caters to their particular needs. We have identified multiple opportunities available to all members of the UCSF community – see the list and links below. You’ll note that some are existing programs and others are customized for a specific departmental request.

We encourage supervisors to enable an individuals’ request to attend a class or program. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
