This works if you want to copy styles, but you have to do it manually every
time. The faster way, if you want to update all styles, is to reattach the
template that's been updated. To do that, go to Tools --> Templates and
Add-ins, and remove the template listed in the Document Template box. Then
select the Automatically update styles check box, and click Attach,
attaching your template.

This will update your styles to match what's currently in the template. I
haven't worked with this enough to know whether later changes to the
template will automatically update documents based on it or not, though I
doubt it works correctly if so... and I don't think this will update any new
text, graphics, or table changes...
