What you will learn
Although advancing a business requires significant change, most corporate leaders aren’t well versed in the process of change, how to manage it or how to sustain it over time. Most think change is about issuing directives and clearly communicating with stakeholders, bosses and subordinates—but leading successful and sustainable change requires far more than this.
You have to know what you want to accomplish and have a detailed plan for getting there. You have to know who might stand in your way and how to overcome inevitable resistance. You have to effectively manage conflict and win people’s support. And you certainly have to gain insight about yourself so you can become more effective in your communication and interactions with others.
This change course was excellent. It gave my team the essential tools they need to manage change.
