Leading Organizational Change
Change is inevitable. Learn to lead through it.
Leading change is one of the hardest challenges for leaders. Our three-day Leading Organizational Change is a journey into the state-of-the-art technologies for personal and organizational transformation. This course introduces contemporary systems of thought for approaching change effectively in your organization, department or team, away from the traditional top down approach.
Delivered in a dynamic, experiential way and grounded in the latest research on strategy formation and organizational change management, you can expect a gentle nudge to get out of your comfort zone as you experience in real life the eight tools we teach in this class.
As you stretch beyond your assumptions and embrace ambiguity, the diagnostic and intervention frameworks and concepts from this class will give you true inspiration and concrete suggestions to apply the next day to your own challenge of change.
